Fiji is renowned for its shark diving, with the chance to see over ten shark species during a single dive. The waters are also blessed with fantastic corals which colonize here due to strong currents that bring nutrient rich water into the area. With more than 390 coral species, around 1200 fish species you’ll see something different on every dive.
