This itinerary includes two of Fiji's most famous dive locations. Enjoy spectacular soft coral diving, manta ray encounters and exhilarating shark dives - a must for all adventure lovers!

Begin your adventure by exploring the Great Astrolabe Reef, one of the largest barrier reefs in the world which encompasses Kadavu, Fiji's fourth largest island. Here you can expect to encounter manta rays on the nearby cleaning station, beautiful coral gardens in the marine park at Naiqoro Passageway, dramatic drop-offs and patrolloing sharks at Far Side, a high energy dive along Wonder Wall and a relaxed one at Connie's Reef, suitable for photographers. Time your holiday for encounters with short-finned pilot and humpack whales, both seasonal visitors.

Located on the southern shores of Viti Levu, Beqa Lagoon is famous for its shark dive, where divers often encounter up to eight different species including bull and tiger. The reef dives are impressive and include a huge pinnacle at Joes Best, a soft coral encrusted wreck at Carpet Cove and for the photographers, there's a spectacular shallow dive at Million Dollar Point.
