Diving Fiji

Fiji... such a little name, but still one of the sole recipients of so many tropical diving dreams and desert island fantasies. Long white sand beach, colourful and exotic cultures,... but also rugby are just about the only things we know about the fijian archipelago! Of the 332 islands located in the South West Pacific, between Vanuatu, Tonga and Tuvalu, we have barely scratched the surface; and there's so much left to be discovered underwater about the marine life and the related scuba opportunities.

As a matter of fact any divers will tell you that the diversity is quite stricking, from the first to the last dive: coral gardens, plenty of wrecks and artificial reefs, sheer drops and walls, caves, Marine Parks and protected areas... The weather is fair throughout the year and the dive companies are modernizing their operations for more safety and better services: these are good reasons to make Fiji a must in scuba diving destinations, for divers and snorkelers alike!

There are several diving regions in the archipelago, organized according to the cardinal points.

  • Eastern Fiji is the most isolated and the least dived. The volcanic seabed is quite deep (plunging to 3000m at least...), and some islands are subject to a local 'Tapu', which means they're closed to visitors.
  • To the North, you'll head for Savuavu, Koro Island, Ringgold Atoll, Motu Levu Reef and Somosomo Strait. Those sites are rarely dived so it's still exploration style!
  • On the Western side of the archipelago, it's the 'postcard Fiji' with turquoise waters and palm trees. Pristine visibility all round and very healthy corals: a dream for snorkelers since the density of fish is huge in the shallows! The divers will appreciate some of the best things to ever happen to a diver: manta rays, dolphins, sharks, turtles and other big pelagics!
  • At last, the South: here you'll find the highest density of dive centers and accommodations. The islands of Beqa, Kadavu and Vatulele are actually protected by their reef and offer nice diving conditions with great dive sites! The one that stands out is Great Astrolab reef, for its awesome pelagic fauna. This being said, South Fiji is also the place where some operators still practice shark feeding... Though a few dive centers do it 'properly', it still is detrimental to the marine environment as a whole and TribloO will make sure they select them out.
