    • Location:

    The Yasawa Princess cruised the Yasawa Island in Fiji for many years and has now transferred to the beautiful Maldives. She was built in Fiji as a bespoke boutique cruise ship for a maximum of 66 guests and 25 Crew. The small number of guests at any one time ensures an intimate, relaxed and informal cruise, with excellent and friendly service. We aim to provide a desert island escape from everyday life – so, no need to dress formally – shorts, tee-shirts and swimwear are all that’s required! 

    A cruise aboard the Yasawa Princess is the best way to see and experience these beautiful jeweled islands of the Indian Ocean in the most relaxed way and offers great opportunities for diving in these calm clear waters. Our full itineraries will provide a varied and unique insight into the Maldives culture and people, and you’ll take home with you the greatest of memories and a few new friends!

    Big Game Fishing

    They do say that the most precious item one could have if stranded on a desert island would be a fishing rod and without doubt when you are stood knee deep in the stunning Indian Ocean yards from one of the islands or atolls that make up the stunning Maldives this fact certainly makes sense. Fish appear to be in abundance and spinning a lure whilst standing in the luxuriously warm water dissolves time away allowing your mind to drift, imagining Robinson Crusoe could actually be watching your every move. Slowly retrieving the large feathery lure almost robotically ends abruptly with a sharp tug that brings you to life in a flash, lifting the rod and the fight you sought so much begins!

    From the moment the plane touches down at Male Airport this adventure can be as calm or as hectic as you wish to make it. Certainly an ideal opportunity for anglers to take their wives or partners and enjoy a mix of fine fishing combined with a proper period of relaxation. 

    A short trip on the transfer boat to board the Yasawa Princess and the adventure begins. Whether booked on the Northern Cruise, the Southern Cruise, or both. Seven or fourteen days in paradise with plenty of excellent fishing available. The ships local guides will look after you and not only transfer you to the islands for fly and spinning but take you fishing off our specially built fully equipped boat for a more serious size catch.
