SALT RIVER DRIFT
Vanua Levu is home to a unique natural phenomenon – the salt river + salt lake! Fed by the surrounding ocean, the saltwater river changes direction with the tides, and ends in a large, virtually untouched salt lake. This unique adventure takes you on a relaxing, fun float through lush mangroves and rolling green hills. When the tide flows towards the lake, don a lifejacket, hop in the buoyant saltwater, and gently float along as our guides serve us ice cold beverages from the boat. A guest favorite and must-do adventure!
