Well we've been back for a couple of weeks now and finally the sunburn and chins are starting to heal and the body is stating to feel normal again. The feeling amongst all of the guys is the trip was an absolute cracker, best ever surf trip. We were all blown away by the waves, the boat was fantastic, the fishing was a massive highlight, pete's hard work and Irone's food and company was exceptional. Steele, it was great meeting you mate and to see you paddling into the biggest sets of the day and tearing it up was inspiring. We're starting to compile some images and video footage so will let you know when it's all up and you can check it out. mate, I hope the last few weeks of charters go well and you get to enjoy somew time with the family soon and thanks heaps for having us on board and maybe one day we can do it all again!

Fiji Safari's Sailing Charters....Honeymoons
At Sea: 6 days aboard the Stellar
Destinations: From Denarau Island, you'll float to palm-tufted isles like the Mamanucas, which have an epic surf spot called Cloudbreak, and the Yasawas, which starred in 1980’s The Blue Lagoon.
Life On Board: There’s no set itinerary on the fully staffed, 49-foot Jeanneau sailboat. Rather, the captain will cater to your whims. Drop anchor and dive into the sea, or have a picnic on a deserted islet. Some afternoons, the crew will head off to fish—you can join them, or hang back for some alone time.

"We had a 14 day charter in September of 2012 with Steele and his crew. Thanks to the knowledge of the crew, we enjoyed the best beaches, snorkeling and food anyone could ever wish for. We also enjoyed great fishing and the fresh caught fish for lunch and dinner was outstanding.We highly recomend Safari Charters to anyone that enjoys great food, super crew and a very nice yacht.
“I would like to start by saying a big thank you. Both Emma and I had a fantastic time aboard stellar. The yacht trip was by far the highlight of our holiday, greeted by great staff and a beautifully kept boat the stay exceeded all of our expectations. Nothing was ever to much trouble and the scenery was magnificent. We would like to pass on our sincere thanks to you and all the staff we will certainly be recommending and considering you for our future travel plans. Ps Hopefully the Honeymoon.”
"December 2012 was when our holiday-come-adventure in the Pacific began. Two 40-something dads with their teenage sons, on a long-planned surf trip around the islands of Fiji. For eight days we enjoyed the very best of Fiji’s fine surf, on a yacht trip like no other.
To say that we were well looked after for would be an understatement. The yacht, “Stellar”, was roomy, well appointed and immaculately clean. “Stellar” was comfortable and quiet under power, and exhilarating and fun under sail… 7 knots proving on many occasion the perfect trolling speed for fishing. The Fijian crew could not have been more friendly and helpful, and the food was amazing…so much effort put into making every meal something special.
Our skipper, Steele, went out of his way satisfy our quest for waves, and the rewards were plenty. From dawn sessions at Cloudbreak, to long days further afield spent surfing totally alone by ourselves, Steele always ensured our surfing desires were met. His extensive knowledge of Fiji’s surf breaks most definitely allowed us to maximize every surfing opportunity. In between waves, we spent our time fishing, snorkelling or simply chilling out in style onboard “Stellar”. We even fitted the odd scuba dive in.
This was a fantastic surfing yacht adventure, set against a spectacular natural backdrop, that we will never forget. My son and I will definitely be back again in 2013."
