The Tui Tai Expeditions will be temporarily closed for a few months.

This company over many years has been providing cruise trips to its guests around Northern Division. It is based in Savusavu.

Savusavu Tourism Association President Justine Hunter confirmed to Fiji Sun that Tui Tai Expeditions would be closed probably four to five months.

“I have been told that the cruise trips would be closed as the company wishes to carry out repair and maintenance work of the ship,” Mr Hunter said.

“The ship sustained some damages by Tropical Cyclone Winston in February this year and so the company decided to take out time to do much needed work.

“Definitely the absence of Tui Tai Expeditions would greatly affect Savusavu tourism development and business.

“The company created opportunities for their guests to visit remote beaches, snorkels over incredible reefs, kayak to local villages and many more adventurous activities.

“Nevertheless, I wish the company well as they take out time to carry out their work as planned.”

When Fiji Sun contacted Tui Tai Expeditions director Tige Young he said he cannot comment on the cost of damages and when they are planning to resume their business.

He said they are preparing to issue a press release next week.
