We recommend that you get Simon to pick you up from your hotel or the airport - it might be more expensive but the personal attention and he will be able to brief you on Naiseuseu. (Simon rowed a small boat from Navua when he was young - it took him six hours!)

Marika is very careful - the boat
belongs to him and he will never take any risks! His distinctively boat, seen
below, with powerful outboard motors can take even the roughest seas - so don't
worry you have the best Captain in the business! (The swells can be quite large
between Beqa and Viti Levu - one of Fiji's most famous surfing spots (Waidroka
Bay) benefits from these swells).
It is important to note if you fear the sea DO NOT go to Beqa Island as the trip, climbing the swells, is quite scary and an adventure in itself. The 18km trip takes about an hour. Having said that Marika has lifebelts for all passengers and has been crossing this stretch of water for thirty years without incident. (In 1997 over 70 Fijians drowned when a heavily overloaded boat without lifebelts going across the Beqa channel sank while on the way to the village of Rukua).
