ONCE ON FIJI WAY, YOU MUST STOP FOLLOWING NAVIGATION AND YOU MUST USE THE NEXT THREE BULLETS TO ARRIVE AT DOCK 55!  

 

  • From Admiralty or Lincoln, take Fiji Way West towards Fisherman’s Village. ½-mile down Fiji Way from Admiralty, just as the road is about to curve to the left, you will see an entrance into the parking for Fisherman's Village.

  • Enter the parking area and you will see the entrance to Dock 55 straight ahead. Park your vehicle in any open spot and proceed to the gangway down to Dock 55 to meet Side Hustle.

 

Please be prompt as this is a shared dock with time limitations for boarding and deboarding. Side Hustle will be at the dock 5 minutes prior to your scheduled departure.

 

All charters are scheduled and staffed according to the stated start and stop times, as well as passenger count. Your charter is scheduled based on the number of passengers discussed while creating your booking. If the number of passengers will increase, you must notify Side Hustle no less than 24 hours in advance.

Please understand our dock space is reserved with a 15-minute window of time for boarding. Based on the dock schedule for the day, if your party is more than 15 minutes late, the boat may need to move off the dock for other reserved boats and will return to the dock for your group's boarding ASAP! This can cause a further delay of up to 15-30 minutes of your scheduled charter time. 
 

We do understand things can delay the prompt arrival of your entire party, and we will always do our best to accommodate the time. All guests need to understand that based on circumstances, we may not be able to extend your charter to compensate for a late start.
