Fiji Diving Holidays and Resort Accommodation

If you are considering a dive holiday in Fiji, you will not be disappointed. Warm climate, friendly Fijian hospitality, accommodation from budget to luxury and some fantastic diving reefs.

When to come. Fiji has two seasons; summer is November to March and so-called winter is April to October. Great diving can be had year round though the highest dive visitor numbers are in the cooler months as the lower ocean temperature usually means increased visibility. Divers usually bring 3mm wetsuits during the cooler months. The summer months feature warm seas, hotter days, and an abundance of flowers though there is also the risk of cyclone activity.

Where to dive and where to stay. The main scuba diving reefs are found in the north (Taveuni and Savusavu has the famous Rainbow Reef), the Koro Sea has remote and beautiful diving reefs (liveaboards, Naigani Island, Koro Island or Namenalala Island), or venture south to Kadavu Island, which is the closest to the great Astrolabe Reef. Beqa Lagoon off Pacific Harbour is another top spot and offers the adrenalin rush of shark feed dives! Pacific Harbour is on the mainland so no domestic air flight is required. It offers a range of hotel and resort accommodation and a large variety of other active adventures (hiking, gamefishing, golf, horseriding, river rafting and ziplining). For idyllic sandy beaches and turquoise lagoons, try the diving offered in the fabulous Mamanuca Islands.

What to expect. Professionally-run dive operations, friendly Fijian hospitality, warm tropical climate, great food, lots of non-diving activities, beaches and accommodation to suit your style and taste ranging from luxury to budget. Whether you are a novice diver, an experience scuba enthusiast, a non-diving partner, or maybe a would-be diver, you will find Fiji scuba diving holidays to suit.  

Fiji is known as the 'soft coral capital of the world', a term ascribed to Fiji because of the beautiful soft coral reefs and bommies to be found in all the regions. These soft corals thrive on the currents that pass through the channels and straits, bringing nutrient rich waters to feed the coral and marine life, while at the same time flushing out the lagoons thereby improving the visibility.
