Denarau (Fiji) - Will we make the ferry connection ?

We arrive in Nadi at 12:45 pm on a weekday (travelling with hand luggage only) and our ferry Malolo Cat departs from port Denarau at 2 pm which takes us to our resort. Will we be able to clear immigration, get on a taxi to make it to Denarau before our ferry departs (assuming the flight arrives on time)

If we don't make the 2 pm ferry, will they transfer our booking to the 5:30 pm ferry automatically ?
I have asked the resort we're staying at these questions but they haven't responded yet.
Thanks

Malolo cat recommends at least 2 hours for this connection. They will not rebook you if you miss the ferry, and changes have to be made 1 hour before departure. After that you lose your $$.

If I were you, I'd book the 5:30p ferry. If you arrive in time for the 2pm, you can change your ticket for free if there is space. But if you book but then miss the 2pm and the 5pm is full, you're SOL.
