Fiji Island Hopping with a "Bula Pass"

Bula Passes are a fantastic way to see the stunning islands in Fiji really easily. A Bula Pass pays for the boat transfers only and doesn't include any accommodation. This gives you more flexibility to choose your own resort along the way, you're not restricted to those included in a Bula Combo Pass. Island hopping isn't limited to those who are backpacking either. Nearly all the islands now have a wide range of accommodation and not just dorms. We've found discounted prices for your Bula Pass, see below.

Botaira Beach Resort in the Yasawa Islands, one of the stops you can make on your pass

Each day the Yasawa Flyer leaves Denarau Marina at 8:30am to island hop between selected Mamanuca Islands on it's way to the Yasawa Islands. The route takes you to nearly 20 islands and more than 30 resorts, picking up and dropping off people along the way. The last stop at the top is Coralview, after that the boat heads back south, stopping off at the islands again before arriving back at Denarau around 5:45pm.

Bula Passes are valid for use on the ferry â€˜Yasawa Flyer’. The boat is a large high speed, modern catamaran with air conditioned lounges, a travel desk, licensed bar, cafe, wifi and outdoor viewing decks.

These handy island hopping passes mean that all your transfers are pre-paid, this makes it so easy to hop on and off the Yasawa Flyer going from one resort to another, when you choose. Passes range from 5 to 21 days and allow for one hop per day.

Free return transfers included

You'll get picked up and dropped off again from your hotel for free when you book a Bula Pass, just make sure you're on the last boat. Pick up can be from the airport too if you come in on one of those really early flights.  The free bus picks up from Nadi airport at 6.50am.
