Diving In Fiji*
Discover the delights of the world’s ‘Soft Coral Capital’
There’s a reason that seasoned scuba divers are drawn to Fiji – other than the friendly locals of course! Stunning green islands meet warm coastal seas with vibrant coral reef cities filled with fish and coral. Once the curse of yesteryear’s sailing ships, Fiji’s maze of brilliant coral reefs are now celebrated for their diversity of habitat and marine life. Even dive greats like Jean Michel Cousteau call it paradise. Some of the world’s longest barrier reefs can be found here; the ‘Great Sea Reef’ and the ‘Great Astrolabe Reef’ and multiple world class dive sites like ‘Grand Central Station’, Nigali Passage and the ‘Great White Wall’.
Over 1200 species of fish and several hundred types of flower-like corals and sponges will have you aching to discover the alien world beneath the waves. An abundance of dive resorts and operators offer guests PADI or SSI affiliated dive operators are scattered throughout Fiji’s top dive regions. Kids as young as 8 are able to safely discover scuba with programs like ‘Bubblemaker’. Whether you’re just finding your way around a BCD jacket, are keen to explore infamous sites like the ‘Great White Wall’, or log your next dive adventure on a liveaboard, you’ll find that diving here is worth the plane ticket.
Wreck Diving in Fiji
There’s no denying the surreal beauty of an underwater wreck as it peers at you from the ocean’s dark depths. Ghostly and strange, it appeals to our curious nature, drawing us to explore deeper.
Though some wrecks are accidents, others are deliberately sunk for the surprising benefits they bring to the marine environment. At least that’s how it is in the tropics where almost all wrecks become false reefs over time. They attract pioneering coral and bevies of fish and critters to their numerous nooks and crannies. Given enough time, the wreck’s familiar lines morph into a beautiful collection of curious characters that make for a delightful and interesting dive.
Wreck diving in Fiji is enjoyable because of our large, sheltered lagoons and excellent water visibility. You’ll find wrecks scattered across the seafloor throughout Fiji and many professional PADI or SSI accredited dive operators to help you explore them.
One of Fiji’s most popular wreck dives is the Tasu 2, a longline fishing vessel at the Beqa Lagoon’s ‘Seven Sisters’ dive site. Other accessible wrecks include the WWII bomber plane wreck off Beachcomber Island and another more recent one near Tivua Island in the Mamanuca islands.
If you choose a wreck dive, remember that some wrecks require special skills to navigate. It’s best not to enter them unless you’re an experienced diver. But swimming alongside, peeking into gaping holes and locating peculiar critters and fish can be just as enjoyable.
