Imagine stepping off of the plane at the Nadi International Airport and feeling the tropical breeze saturate your skin while the sun kisses your shoulders and gives a warm welcome. The very first thing you want to do is reach your destination in a very short period of time, rather then spending up to six hours aboard a boat just to reach one of the best Fiji resorts you plan to visit that happens to be located on another island”

Luckily, there’s no reason to worry about slow going boat transportation after landing at the Nadi airport. Instead, you can travel in an exciting seaplane to get to your resort. There are many benefits to enjoy when you’re on a seaplane, including:

Spectacular Views

You won’t be limited to what you can see from sea level when you are in a seaplane. In fact, the views are so spectacular that you can see the coral in the water while you are in the air! You can even make out the lucky people who are enjoying the beaches on islands below you.

Quick Transportation

Because seaplanes can take off and land quickly, and they can travel lower in the air, they tend to make excellent time when transporting passengers from one island to another. There is no wasted time waiting for a boat to traverse the waters while wondering if you’ll be sea-sick. Simply board the seaplane and you’ll be at your destination in less than an hour.

An Exhilarating Experience

Traveling on the water at high speeds before taking off and after landing is an exhilarating experience that even the most adventure savvy people will appreciate. The experience is like no other, and is made even more spectacular because of the picture perfect views.

Plenty of Comfort

You can sit back, relax, and even take a little snooze without getting a cramp in your neck if you want to. The seats in a seaplane are usually pretty soft and supportive too.


One of the most positive aspects of riding in a seaplane when you are traveling between Fiji islands is that it’s affordable. This makes it possible to take day trips to islands that you aren’t staying on so you can explore more of Fiji before you head back home.

The Opportunity to Travel to Cool Locations

During your vacation to the Fiji islands, you can do things like visit the location where the Blue Lagoon movie was filmed in 1979. New opportunities are offered throughout the year depending on access, weather, demand, and other determinates so you never know what adventures will await you when you make it to the islands.
