There are eight bures offered at the resort, each named after a Rainbow Reef dive site and carefully situated to maximize privacy as well as easy access to the rest of the resort. The bures feature a lounge area, mini-fridge, and a couch that can be converted into a bed if needed. Furnishings include a side table and chairs that can be moved between the patio and interior. The sleeping area has a king bed and benches line the wall to provide storage for luggage and dive gear. At the back of the bure is an ensuite bathroom with a shower, twin sinks, and a water closet. Each bure can sleep up to two people, but arrangements can be made for a third person to sleep in the lounge area. Electric outlets may need an adapter as the electricity supply is 240V.
The resort offers dive boats that were built with both ruggedness and stability in mind. There are four boats, two hold twelve divers, one that holds eight divers, and one that holds six divers. The boats all carry equipment in case of an emergency including a first aid kit, medical oxygen, tools, personal floatation devices for all passengers, marine radio, and a cell phone. The dive shop offers a full range of well-maintained dive gear in a variety of sizes available for rent. Most of the gear is made by ScubaPro, TUSA, and Sherwood. You can rent BCD, a regulator set, a computer, mask, fins, snorkel, snorkel vests, and 3mm wetsuits
The coral reefs of Fiji are among the most diverse in the Pacific. There is a plethora of other species that call the reefs home including giant clams, sharks, groupers, tuna, barracuda as well the soft and hard corals. Many of the reefs in Fiji are fringing reefs that are close to the shore while other parts are flat-topped platform and barrier reefs. There are 467 species of mollusks, 298 species of hard coral, and approximately 1,200 species of reef fish. You can explore the world famous Somosomo Strait, a narrow channel that separates Vanya Levu and Taveuni. As the tide changes, water funnels through the strait and rushes along the reefs. This provides nutrients to the marine life and this flow creates perfect conditions for coral garden growth. This current flow creates iconic dives such as the Great White Wall where white soft coral called Dendronephthya blankets almost every inch of the reef.



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.
