By Boat:

The Yasawa Flyer, operated by Awesome Adventures, is a large catamaran which travels daily from Denarau Marina (Nadi) to Nacula Island (Oarsman’s Bay Lodge) and is the only ferry which goes up to the Yasawas.

The journey up through the Yasawas is magical, leaving Denarau Marina at 8.30am. The Flyer stops along the way in the most scenic channels and bays, picking-up and dropping-off travellers and resort hoppers who are moving on to their next slice of paradise. One of the northern most stops is Oarsman Bay Lodge, and from there, the Flyer heads back south, stopping off at all the islands again before arriving back at Port Denarau at 5:45pm.

​Snacks and refreshments are available on the flyer and there is seating for 250 guests, both inside (air-conditioned) and outside. Upgrade to the Captains Lounge for a more upscale transfer experience.
