Fiji is well known to divers worldwide as one of the
most dreamed about vacations. It's reputation comes
from what it has to offer. The variety of soft coral
is astounding. Fed by the rich nutrients streaming
up from the Tonga Trench and influenced by several
major rivers, the reef eco-system in the Fiji Islands
is noted for its complex nature.
In Fiji, however, you will see any number of hard
and soft coral, sea fans, dense schools of fairy basslets,
schools of barracuda. Other large creatures and pelagics
that can be seen include also turtle, dolphin, mantas,
and a wide variety of sharks.
Fiji diving has something for everyone. Whether you
visit as a snorkeler or novice diver to enjoy Fiji's
easy reef diving or as an experienced diver enjoying
Fiji's exotic wall dives and big fish action. Fiji
has it all! As the "Soft Coral Capital of the
World", Fiji's underwater landscape must be seen
to be believed.
