Diving in Fiji

Fiji, an archipelago of 333 islands in the South Pacific Ocean. The two most significant and most popular islands of Fiji are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. This archipelago is a history-rich place that gained its independence from England in 1970. Every year thousands of couples travel to this country for romantic getaways on luxurious private islands, as well as to enjoy beautiful all-inclusive resorts, and world-class surfing and diving.

The archipelago of Fiji is known by many as the Soft Coral Capital of the World, for its 80 different soft coral species that can be found here by divers from all over the world. Not only the waters surrounding Fiji have over 330 different species of hard corals, making Fiji home to 42% of all known coral species in the world. The waters of this paradise have healthy reefs of every color of the rainbow. Liveaboard diving is very popular here, and it will allow you to explore much of Fiji’s incredible underwater world.
