We love Fiji waters as it has a mix of dive sites and marine life that would please both new and experienced divers, all year long. You will see colorful walls and pinnacles that start shallow. Beautiful soft coral, gorgonians and hard coral host some of the best macro life in the world. The pelagic life is rewarding too, with hammerheads, bull sharks and manta rays. Pilot whales are frequently spotted too. Give it some spectacular scenery, with islands that are both flat and vertical, and you have everything a diver could dream of!
The dive operator discovered in the South Pacific in 1997 the remarkable diving in the Phoenix Islands, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They partner with scientists from the University of the South Pacific, World Wildlife Fund, Wilderness Conservation Society, Conservation International and more. The divers on board often take part in marine eco-tourism projects.
