Water Taxis

Fiji is a country and an archipelago in the southern Pacific Ocean, consisting of about 330 islands and 510 islets and atolls of volcanic origin, spread in an area of 3 million kmē. Only about 100 islands are inhabited by the 832,000 residents. It is a tropical paradise with beautiful beaches. Its clear waters and reefs are ideal for diving and fishing.

These little boats are very popular on Fiji for carrying people and cargo from the tourist boats to the islands. The islands are so low in the water, there if usually not enough depth for the boats to go any closer. And not many have wharfs for boats to tie up by. When the tide goes out, it is usually very low and flat for many, many metres.
