A Selection of Dive Sites

Dive Site: "Kokoda Point"

Kokoda Point is one of Fiji's best wall dives. Crystal clear visibility and a dramatic dropoff make for a prime spot to meet pelagics: barracuda, tuna, eagle rays, sharks and more. The wall is decorated in soft corals, crinoids and large fans.One patch of the wall is covered in sea grapes, for which the site has earned its name. The wall is teaming with fish life and macro creatures.

Dive Site: "Wall Street"

The wall just off the reef wall took a couple tries to find, but it was worth the search. Pinnacles emerge from the depths, covered in soft corals and clouded by orange and purple anthias. This has been a great site for nudibranchs, flatworms and lionfish.

Dive Site: "Rainbow Passage"

One of our favorite Rainbow Reef dives in Somosomo Straits.Two bommies are wrapped by fresh currents from the Strait provided a staggering cover of lush soft-corals (purple, yellow, white, red and more).Swarms of anthias and small fish will be all around you as you drift along. White-tip reef sharks cruise along and often sleep near the edge on the sea floor. Several large camouflage groupers and maori wrasses make their homes here.

Dive Site: "The Great White Wall"

Renowned as one of Fiji’s top dive sites. Prepare to be awestruck by a steep wall that descends endlessly to the bottom, completely smothered in lush white soft coral. Off the deep edge of the wall you will find some pelagics. Often schools of batfish stop by to greet us while we drift along the wall. At the end of the dive is a deep swim-through cavern providing an exciting exit to an amazing dive.
