About Fiji

Fiji consists of 333 islands scattered over 42,000 square miles of ocean. In the blue seas of the South Pacific you will find these extraordinary and beautiful islands. They are a tropical wonderland inhabited by a people who invented the true meaning of hospitality.


Beach lovers will be in heaven with the many miles of white sand beaches. Surfers marvel at the endless swells. You can kayak through the maze of unspoiled islands, hike through rainforests dotted with breathtaking waterfalls, angle for yellowfin tuna, marlin and wahoo....or you can spend your days doing nothing at all...

Fiji is well known to divers worldwide as one of the most dreamed about vacations. It's reputation comes from what it has to offer. The variety of soft coral is astounding. Fed by the rich nutrients streaming up from the Tonga Trench and influenced by several major rivers, the reef eco-system in the Fiji Islands is noted for its complex nature.

In Fiji, however, you will see any number of hard and soft coral, sea fans, dense schools of fairy basslets, schools of barracuda. Other large creatures and pelagics that can be seen include also turtle, dolphin, mantas, and a wide variety of sharks.

Fiji diving has something for everyone. Whether you visit as a snorkeler or novice diver to enjoy Fiji's easy reef diving or as an experienced diver enjoying Fiji's exotic wall dives and big fish action. Fiji has it all! As the "Soft Coral Capital of the World", Fiji's underwater landscape must be seen to be believed.
