A dive guide to Scuba diving in Lomaiviti, Fiji Islands

This website gives a overview of dive operators and general info and tips of scuba diving in Central Fiji.
Some of the most exciting dive location in Fiji.

Central Fiji - the Koro Sea, 
and Vatu-i-Ra Passgae form the Vatu-i-Ra Seascape, the Fiji Islands most exciting and most diverse waters, hiding some of the most challenging ocean experiences and dive adventures in Fiji.

It is this outstanding diversity of sea live and the complex marine ecosystems in Central Fiji, that recognizes the Vatu-i-Ra Seascape as one of the last intact remaining sanctuaries for endangered species.

  "Fiji's Big Fish Capital" -Lomaiviti - are the Islands of Namena, Makogai, Koro, Wakaya, Batiki, Nairai, Gau, Ovalau and Moturiki
Most of them are the peaks of deep sea volcano's rising from 1000 to 3000 meters. The surrounding reefs are fed from major ocean currents and upwelling from the deep sea.  Wide open sea, 1000 meter walls, passages with strong currents to calm inside reefs form the habitat  of large schooling fish like tuna, barracuda, travelly, snapper.... gray reef sharks, hammerheads, manta rays, turtles... as well as whales and dolphins.
