Diving the Mamanuca Islands

A small, condensed volcanic archipelago lying just west of Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, makes up The Mamanuca Islands. Due to its proximity to the town of Nadi, this archipelago, made up of about 20 small islands, is a popular tourist destination. Diving in The Mamanucas, you will see a stunning marine environment consisting of warm, crystal-clear water, colorful coral reefs, and abundant sea life. Great dive sites suited for all levels of divers can be found in this area, with easy accessibility to most sites that are located between 2-30 minutes from the boat dock. This picture-perfect place is also great for family-friendly snorkeling. In this archipelago, you will find many possible adventures such as drift dives, night dives, wreck dives, and easy reef dives. The Mamanucas are also filled with heart-pounding adventures. One of the most sought-after experiences is bull shark diving. Local dive guides will take you to an area with dozens of these animals, where you will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with these powerful creatures in their natural environment. The best way to arrive at the Mamanuca Islands is by boat or seaplane, although you can also get there by helicopter.
