Marina description...


Call: "Waitui Marina" on VHF 16. The shape of Savusavu Bay is such that calling anyone from outside the Savusavu (Point Passage) Light is likely not going to get thru. If you wait until you have a visual on Nawi Island and the main city concrete wharf, you will be able to get thru.

Navigation & Approach

Navigation Cautions for Yachts Entering Savusavu, Vanua Levu, Fiji Islands:

  • The Point Passage light lies on the INSIDE of the reef, about 50 meters east of the actual end of the reef. Chart legends show it as being a lighthouse, in truth it is more on the lines of a light standard sticking up on the reef. It is mostly, but not always, lit.
  • The rocks on the west side of Point Passage only break with a West to Southwest swell.
  • There is a mooring for the bows of the inter-island ferrys west of the Main Dock. If there is a ferry at the dock, it is probable that there is a line between the mooring buoy and the ferry. Based only on observation, no cruising yacht has been successful in moving the ferry by pushing on the mooring line. The mooring buoy's position, as determined by S/V Jill Diane is 16˚ 46.597'S 179˚ 19.492'E. This reference is provided for your convienence and is to be used at your own risk.
  • There is a channel marker as you enter Nakama Creek that you should leave to your port side. An avoidance waypoint, as determined by S/V Jill Diane is 16˚ 46.659'S 179˚ 19.796'E. This reference is provided for your convienence and is to be used at your own risk.
  • If you look off your starboard beam as you pass, you can see the Waitui Marina Building.

Hope to see you here soon!
