DIVING IN FIJI

Gau Island

Koro Gardens is marked by a single large bommie that comes to within 15 feet of the surface. The area around the bommie is about 45 feet to the bottom and drops off to 95 feet in some areas. Hard corals cover everything while an abundance of reef fish crowd the waters and make the diving spectacular.

Shark Fin Point is on the north east point of Koro Island can be action central. On most dives you will see a large school of about 500 barracudas, eagle rays, many white tip, lots of grey reefs, lobster, eels, and we have even seen whale shark here, yes we really have. Not only are the fish and shark abundant but it's covered in both hard and soft corals. When the tide is running this can be a most enjoyable drift dive because little effort is needed to move and its seems as if the show just swims by you.

Makongi Island

At the turn of the century Makongi Island was the home of the last leper colony in Fiji but today its the home of the Fijian turtle and clam farm. The north end of the island is protected by a barrier reef which has a lot of great dive sights. The foremost popular are White rock, Rustic arch, coral garden and Makongi channel. Each of these sights has wide variety of bright indigenous little fish

Coral Gardens is a series of bommies that have a beautiful supply of hard and soft corals. This sight also has turtles, white tips sharks, moray eels, lion fish and once in a while a nurse shark. Visibility can sometimes be below 40 feet because of heavy plankton. E-6 and Hi-8 - These two sites are aptly named: "E-6" for the amount of film shot at this site and likewise,"Hi-8" for the amount of video footage taken. Both E-6 and Hi-8 are pinnacles that start at a depth of 3,000 feet and rise to the surface. E-6 has a horseshoe shaped grotto which is filled with anemones, large clams, lionfish and spectacular red sea fans and soft corals. Each has a virtual smorgasbord of soft corals, hard corals, sea fans, sea anemones, octicoral, swim-throughs and are teeming with smaller fishes of the South Pacific. Included at both sights are sweet lips, hammer heads, white tips, occasional silver tips and if we're lucky a whale.

Makongi Island

Makongi Channel is most often a drift dive due to the fact its at an entrance to the inner reef. On an incoming tide the visibility is quite good and sometimes exceeds 100 feet. The usual party of Makongi sea life abounds here in the channel as well. Rustic Arch was discovered by photo pro Rusty Madsen during an exploration trip in Feb. 98. This sight has excellent hard and soft corals, sea fans, sea anemones, lion fish, moray eels, white tips and a recently discovered home to a large Napoleon wrasse.

Namena (Namenalala Island)

The Namena barrier reef stretches a distance of over 10 miles. There is an abundance of dive sights here but many are unprotected in open waters and can't be dove in bad weather. Most of these sites have the possibility of high currents and as a result the sea life here is abundant and very active. It is not uncommon to see gray reefs, white tips, silver tips, barracuda and dog tooth tuna on a 30 minute dive. The following are the most popular dive sights.

Wakaya Island

Gem Stone is on the outside edge of Wakaya passage. This is a wall dive with swim throughs, hard and soft corals and as one guests who has dove around the world said, this sight is as good as they have in the Red Sea. Mantas also frequently visit this location along with hammer head and white tips sharks. When diving this location on a night dive the light fish here are very abundant and make for a great light show.

Golden Rock is a bommie that starts at 35 ft. on the high inside edge it then comes up to 10 ft. and is 20 ft. across. This site has soft coral, hard coral, cleaner shrimp, blue ribbon eels, lionfish, and most important it is a cleaning station for mantas and we see mantas here 90% of the time.
