A South Pacific dream vacation is easier than you think! Fiji is just two meals and two movies from the West Coast. Now is your perfect chance to dive the brilliantly colorful "Soft Coral Capital of the World."
Experience Fijian hospitality at the Garden Island Resort on Taveuni, known for its lush landscape and proximity to Fiji's signature Somosomo Strait diving.
In addition to diving, you'll explore beaches, hike to waterfalls and experience a traditional lovo feast and festive meke where the villagers sing and dance to share their culture with you. Feel your lips go numb as you catch a buzz from the kava we share with the local chief as a tribute. This is a true South Pacific adventure, and the Fijians are so friendly you'll never believe they were once cannibals!
With a choice of uncrowded dive sites, Taveuni is a dream destination for both intermediate and experienced divers. Since the soft corals "bloom" in current, drift diving is the norm rather than the exception. New divers should gain experience with strong current on Cozumel or elsewhere before diving the Somosomo Straits.
This week is designed to dovetail perfectly with the Diving For Life LGBTQ Scuba Jamboree, October 9-16, 2022. Sign up for both and enjoy the opportunity to dive two distinct regions of Fiji: Taveuni's Rainbow Reef and Beqa Lagoon.
