Experience a trip aboard Fiji's  traditional voyaging canoe, the drua. This double-hulled piece of living history is crewed by traditional navigators and compliant with all maritime regulations. Fiji's only original sailing experience, it is safe, relaxing while being a little intrepid.
Over a hundred years ago fleets of canoes dominated the  entire Pacific Ocean. The greatest of all was the Fijian drua. Larger, faster and more agile, these craft were revered across the Pacific. The knowledge and technology to build them had almost faded into folklore. Until now...

Launched in 2016, iVola Sigavou (The New Rising Star), is reinvigorating traditional sailing here in Fiji. A faithful replica of the last surviving drua that is housed in the Fiji Museum. It's an adventure into the proud past of the Pacific.

The drua will be used as a training platform for both Fijian locals and visitors to our shores. They operate sustainable business model that empowers the crew who sail on the vessel.

Drua Experience welcomes people to sail, swim and relax in the beautiful blue of Nadi Bay. Running from The Boatshed at Vuda Marina in Vuda, which is half way between Nadi and the city of Lautoka. A trip on our drua will be a very cherished memory of Fiji.


Drua Experience are based at The Boatshed in Vuda Marina which is a short drive from either Nadi or Lautoka.
