Pilotwhale between Wakaya and Ovalau by jonspokes@hotmail.com
Lomaiviti area is visited only by few divers. In fact, most dive sites are so far out that they can only be visited from live aboard dive vessels. We regularly dive a radius of 20 miles which includes the sites at Wakaya and Makogai, Vatu I Cake, Moturiki Passage and Ovalau Reefs . Some of the most exciting places in Fiji.

The Makogai - Wakaya Reef a huge figure eight shaped reef - lagoon about 25 miles long. It got formed about six million years ago as the Fiji Micro plate got kind of wedged under some otherOvalau, Wakaya, Makogai plate, which causes the Fiji Micro plate to turn. Along the resulting crack in the earth crust through an up welling of magma the Islands Moala, Gau, Wakaya, Makogai, Vatu and the sea mount E6 appeared. (About the plates) All those Islands raise from from a seafloor of well over 1000 meters. East of Wakaya- Gau the seafloor falls to over 3000 meters.
Wakaya is a private island and operates The Wakaya Club. Makongi Island is home to a turtle, clam farm and trochus shell farm. Wakaya wall and its passages and Makogai has lots of awesome dive. Frequented by large sea life like dogtooth, grey reef shark, hammerheads and mantas. West of Makogai are the Vatu Reefs.

Rat Passage, best in strong current ... large schools of trevally and barracuda can be expected and, at times, over a dozens of grey reef sharks. yeah

The hammerheads aren't the only draw card to the diving
here. The hard and soft coral are some of the most colourful I have seen while diving in Fiji. From manta rays to sharks and barracudas... its all here. And if you are lucky you might see dolphins or whales on you journey to the sites. We saw a whale shark on ours..  it pays to go off the beaten track to find a hidden treasure.
