Fiji Scuba Diving: Some Helpful Information
With over 40 dive sites accessible from Paradise, you will find something for every type of diver – from beginner to advanced. Our dive sites are visited on a regular basis by our Paradise divers and we are discovering more all the time.
For your convenience, we have classified our dive sites into levels of experience.
Level 1: Beginner diver. Maximum depth 18 meters, gentle with no current
Level 2: Intermediate diver, depths range from 20-25 meters, some current, some surface waves at times
Level 3: Advanced diver, depths up to 30 meters, expect current and exposed surface conditions at times
Here are a few of our favorite Fiji diving sites:
Orgasm (Vuna Reef) Level 2
Vuna Reef at its finest! This wall dive faces Open Ocean and it is here that we have seen some of our favorite regulars: Sharks, Rays and Napoleon Wrasse. As well as drift by schools of Spanish Mackerel or Giant Tuna from the deep. All of this in only 60f /18m, a truly awe-inspiring dive site that never seems to disappoint us.
The Great White Wall (Rainbow Reef) Level 3
The soft coral capital of the world’s signature dive offers an astounding wall of pure white soft coral. This site is definitely the world famous Rainbow Reef’s top draw. A coral encrusted swim – through leads onto the wall from the reef top. A dazzling myriad of color and life inhabits the reef top. Manta rays glide past with ethereal grace. On exiting the water from this site an awed silence lasts awhile before an excited chatter that lasts for days starts among divers in Fiji. Not to be missed!
The Zoo (Rainbow Reef) Level 3
An extreme marine experience! Schools of Barracuda are common here, swimming above the White Tip reef sharks resting on the sand. Moray Eels, Groupers and small reef fish are plentiful and lucky divers will glimpse the graceful bronze whaler sharks patrolling the deep blue waters.
