The resort’s dive center, Mad Fish, is PADI-certified and caters to all levels of divers. Guides take divers to sites where they can experience the amazing Fiji soft coral gardens and marine life. The resort’s signature dive is the Manta Reef which is great for both diving and snorkeling and allows guests to encounter manta rays all year round. Manta Reef is a feeding station with a resident manta population as well as pelagic manta visits. This dive site is outside of the Great Astrolabe Barrier Reef and is a 40-minute boat ride from Matava.
The resort operates two custom-built dive boats that offer the perfect level of comfort for guests as they enjoy their dives. Dive Me is twenty-three feet long, supports twelve to sixteen divers, their gear and forty scuba tanks.

Dive Conditions

Fiji has a tropical climate sporting a year-round diving season. The water temperature hovers around 25°C (77°F) in winter and 29°C (84°F) in summer. The average depth of the dives is between 5m to 40m with very clear visibility of up to 15m to 40m.
The majority of diving is done as drift dives, allowing you to cover large distances and see walls of soft corals. Current is your friend in Fiji, as it brings out the soft corals while wildlife piles up on the current side of reefs. Photographers often use a reef hook to find a spot with beautiful colors, hook in, and shoot to their heart’s delight. The tops of pinnacles and reefs usually host a plethora of life. Just hook in and shoot as the current blows you around. Always carry a safety sausage so the tender boat can see you when you surface. Soft corals are not everywhere in Fiji – divers need to go to specific areas. And there are some stunning hard coral reefs in Fiji that offer great macro, some good pelagic life, and the best shark dive in the world.
The water temperature during the dry season (June - September) is usually in the mid-70s F, with August being the coolest month. During the wet season (December - April) temperatures are usually in the low 80s F with February and March being the warmest months underwater. Underwater visibility during the dry season is often 100’+ outside the lagoons. The Bligh Waters can have high visibility even in the wet season, ranging from 80-100ft. Fiji is warm and tropical most of the time with air temperatures ranging between 31°C between 26°C all year round.
