Conditions and underwater experiences vary greatly while in fiji scuba diving and while some places are peaceful and great for beginners, most dive sites will enjoy some current, ranging from barely perceptible to extremely strong. It is this existence of current that makes the diving in the Fijian Islands so rich and exciting.
Currents are the lifeblood of Fiji’s reefs, starting the food chain by bringing nutrients to both beautiful corals and huge fish alike. Fiji is known as “The Soft Coral Capital of the World” and when the current flows the corals bloom into gorgeous groups displays of splendor. The currents also vastly affect the water’s visibility which can be the best around, with incoming currents bringing clear ocean water into the lagoons and outgoing currents removing any cloudy lagoon water.
Lagoons are a feature of the islands and often the water stags shallow until some distance from shore and makes for excellent snorkeling. This means that most of the diving is conducted from offshore boats and also that the shorelines are great for adults and children alike to go snorkeling and swimming. they can even use this awesome Easybreath full face snorkel mask!
the scuba diving in Fiji is truly exceptional and one of our favorite spots to bring rehabilitating divers. The local atmosphere is fantastic for anyone recovering from serious injuries. The local population is friendly and you will always be met with a warm smile.
Scuba diving in fiji is not only fun but most of the local dive shops donate some of their proceeds to environmental causes to help keep e reefs thriving and insure the dive sites are going to be around for years to come. We recently spent 6 months down in Fiji scuba diving with massive sea turtles and brought all our own scuba gear with us for an extended stay
