On this extraordinary program we will visit two spectacular Pacific island chains. We'll spend our days snorkeling, diving, sailing, kayaking, feasting on traditional foods, meeting locals, soaking in Fijian culture, and volunteering at a Fijian school.
On this extended version of our 13-day Fiji program to the Land of Smiles, you get a little more of everything with up to a full 40 hours of community service and more sensational days to savor Fiji time in paradise. Participate in two unique service projects focused on working with youth and a marine conservation project. Volunteer with children and help improve the facilities of a local island school. Discover what it feels like to make a difference in the lives of the friendly school children who you’ll come to see as little brothers and sisters over the course of our project. Participate in hands-on marine ecosystem maintenance and help out with a coral reef project. Enjoy the colorful underwater world and gain a new appreciation for the ocean.
During our time exploring the spectacular island chain, dive into the crystal clear blue waters as you the swim with manta rays, reef sharks, exotic fish and vibrant corals. Feel like a local as you explore limestone caves, cook a lovo, sample kava and visit several villages. Join us for a mix of cultural immersion, fun, adventure, and relaxation that you’re sure to never forget!
