What’s the diving like?
Fiji is home to some of the most stunning coral reefs in the world, which are teeming with vibrant marine life. The reefs are home to colorful fish, sea turtles, rays, and other fascinating creatures. The water in Fiji is known for its exceptional clarity, often exceeding 100 feet. This allows divers to see the vibrant colors and intricate details of the marine life and coral formations. Fiji's unique ocean currents create a drift diving experience, where divers are carried along by the current and can cover a lot of ground while expending minimal energy. The currents also bring nutrient-rich water to the reefs, which supports the diverse marine life. Fiji has over 330 islands and more than 1,000 miles of coral reefs, offering a wide range of dive sites to explore. Some of the most popular dive sites include the Great Astrolabe Reef, the Namena Marine Reserve, and the Beqa Lagoon.
