Taveuni, Fiji 21st – 28th October 2023

Written by Webmaster

Here is the second overseas trip of the 2023-24 financial year! 

Taveuni, Fiji is often reffered to as the “soft coral capital of the world” – with the legendary Rainbow Reef!

Rainbow Reef is a reef in the Somosomo Strait, between the Fijian islands of Taveuni and Vanua Levu, a relatively narrow channel where nutrient rich waters from deeper areas at either end of the channel are brought to the surface and over the reefs, providing a constant food supply for the ecosystem of marine life that lives there.  It is one of the most famous and beautiful dive sites in the South Pacific with its sheer abundance of pristine soft and hard corals, sea fans and sea anemones of vibrant rainbow colours.  Fiji also has about 1,200 species of fish, and every one of the 27 species of butterfly fish found in Fiji is found on the Rainbow Reef.  Every scene, every vista in every direction has literally every colour of the rainbow!   You will also have the opportunity to dive the Great White Wall, with its massive wall covered densely in white soft corals that almost look like they glow!

For those of you who wish to extend your stay in Fiji, there is an optional add on trip to the Pacific Harbour/Beqa Lagoon in Viti Levu, to do some adrenalin-pumping shark diving with the bull sharks, lemon sharks, tawny nurse sharks, etc. If you are intrested, please indicate when you sign up.
