Destination info

Fiji boasts both beautiful scenery and a warm and diverse culture. Located in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean, Fiji lies between New Zealand and the equator. The capital city is Suva, one of only two cities in Fiji; it is located on the island of Viti Levu. The Fijian archipelago is made up of over 300 islands, of which only one third are inhabited. The many islands are perfect for diving, and coral reefs are plentiful in the clear blue waters.

 

  • Location: Fiji

There are plenty of options for you to choose from, depending on your current diving experience and how far you wish to progress. All of our courses follow the PADI standard, however, if you have trained to the BSAC (British Scuba Aqua Club) equivalent, our programme can ensure you receive all of the correct training to the PADI structure.

 

Each programme option has been designed to give you some free time before, during or at the end of the course(s); we know that you’ll want a couple of extra days to chill out and soak up the sun, sights and sounds of this beautiful country!

In addition to the medical requirements, it is also necessary for you to complete several PADI indemnity forms.

Close

2. Do I need any vaccinations?

As we are not medically trained we cannot give you medical advice. You must make an appointment to see your GP or travel nurse who will be able to give you the best and most up to date travel health advice and more information about vaccinations.

Close

3. What if I want to travel around Fiji after the programme?

We really recommend our Fiji Experience bus passes! These allow you to take your own time travelling around the main island of Viti Levu as well as the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands. From the day you start the pass you have up to 12 months to complete it! If you like a particular place you can stay there as long as you like and then when you are ready to move on you can just book yourself onto the next available bus and move on to the next place. It is the perfect way to visit all the must see places and meet loads of like minded travellers.

Close

4. What are the group sizes like?

You can expect to be in a group of around 4-6 people. There will also be lots of travellers staying in the resort as well so there will be plenty of people to meet and socialise with.

Absolutely! It is possibly one of the friendliest places that you will ever visit!

What were the highlights of your trip?

The diving was good, and I got to meet a lot of new people

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

The £10 for food info is inaccurate as you are limited to the one restaurant which is overpriced Discuss with your dive instructor when you want days off so that you can book trips in advance You'll likely have a lot of spare time on your hands to relax so bring more than one book as the people you meet will often only be staying for a night or two

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

No but I think it should be made clear that while the trip takes 3 weeks the diving course can be completed in 8 days or so

Would you travel with our company again?

yes

Would you recommend us?

4 years on and no matter where I go, nothing beats the time I had in Fiji. Not only the fantastic friends I made but the amount I learned as a Diver. I have gone on to teach Diving in other parts of the world since, and will always remember where I started. A big thankyou to all the organisers!!
