Fiji Scuba Group Dive Trip
September 7, 2024 – September 17, 2024
A Trip to FIJI has always been on your bucket list? For us too! That is why we set up an amazing trip to FIJI in September 2024.
After a long period of planning, it’s actually happening! We are going to Fiji for a scuba group trip! It’ll be a 10 night trip to the wonderful island of Taveuni.
Where are we going?
We are going to Fiji, specifically to the island of Taveuni. This is a stunning place, far away from mass tourism, with excellent diving and other activities. Our resort, Paradise Taveuni Resort, a secluded getaway situated on the southern tip of Taveuni, is a one hour domestic flight from Nadi International Airport followed by a scenic one-hour drive from Taveuni’s Matei Airport.
When are we going?
We’ll go in the best season for diving in Fiji, September of 2024. It’s during the dry season, which runs from April to October. During this time, the weather is warm and sunny, making it the perfect time to explore the beaches and jungles. We’ll be there at the right time to dive the world famous dive site, Great White Wall, which is located close to our hotel.
Taveuni is “The Soft Coral Capital of the World” and Paradise Resort is in the heart of it. Paradise Dive is owned and operated by Paradise Taveuni Resort and is located on site.
Paradise Resort has an exceptional house reef and shore dives are included, even on boat dive days.
Rainbow Reef is a mile long reef in the Somosomo Strait between the islands of Taveuni and Vanua Levu and only a 20-30 minute boat trip from Paradise Resort. It is one of the most famous dive sites in the South Pacific.
Paradise Taveuni offers diving on one of the “Top 10 Dive Sites in the World”,The Great White Wall, on the legendary Rainbow Reef. It got its name from the white coral inhabiting the area at depths between 49 and 213 ft. This is truly a remarkable dive site that has been on our bucket list for many years! This dive site is not open year-round, but it will be open while we are there.
We will spend 10 nights at the wonderful dive resort Paradise Taveuni Resort. Paradise Taveuni is a remote and secluded boutique oceanfront resort on a panoramic five-acre property nestled amongst lush tropical gardens with rainforest mountains as a backdrop. Its unique deep water frontage allows guests to dive, snorkel and swim from the lava flow edge into pristine warm tropical waters at any time of the day.
We’ll have the choice between Oceanfront Vales (1 bedroom, ideal for couples) and Oceanview Family Bures (2 private bedrooms with a King Bed in each, ideal for two single travelers). Every room has a tropical outdoor shower in it’s own private lava-rock garden, a generous king bed (or two) and a spacious deck for reading and enjoying the views.
