Dive Resorts Fiji
Fiji has many diving resorts spread across many islands. But some of the best dive resorts in Fiji are remote and it is either time-consuming or very expensive to get to. Going on a liveaboard dive vessel makes it easy to visit the best dive sites.
Why is Central Fiji scuba diving outstanding?
The Lomiviti Islands are the peaks of deep-sea volcanos rising from the bottom of the Koro Basin from a depth of 3000meter. (About the plates)
Those Deep Waters in Central Fiji create upwelling deep-sea currents, that feed a food chain from the smallest critters to the biggest creatures… Walls, caves, overhangs and colorful soft and hard coral gardens full of colored tropical reef fish. Reef passages and channels exposed to strong currents are teaming with large schooling fish such as barracuda, trevally, gray reef sharks, different rays, tuna, turtles and more pelagic fish. On calm days, pilot whales and dolphins are often spotted.
The Resorts in Central Fiji in the Lomaiviti Group are few only, most have a capacity for few guests only at a time, some of them are exclusive luxury resorts.
