Local Knowledge & Itinerary Planning

Cruising in Fiji waters is stunningly remote and beautiful, and it has given Carol the opportunity to experience many once-in-a-lifetime moments, however, its isolation and untouched beauty also means that it is one of the more difficult areas in the South Pacific.

Local Protocols - Yacht Partners Fiji

When entering a bure (Fijian house), shoes are left at the door, hats and sunglasses taken off, and you may often sit on the floor, try to sit cross-legged, and you should be aware that your bare feet should not be touching anyone, or near anyone’s head as this is very impolite. For you, village protocol will be important on your village visits and this includes dress, alcohol and respecting the land and waters of the village that owns them.
