Diveaway Fiji operates from the beautiful Coral Coast of Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island. Our boats run out from our bases at the Rydges Hideaway and Mango Bay Resorts; we have diveshops at the Outrigger on the Lagoon and the Beachouse as well as being the dive op of choice for many of the boutique resorts and backpackers dotted along the Coral Coast.
As a small, friendly dive operation, we enjoy sharing our beautiful dive sites with divers from complete beginners through to the very experienced. Dive groups are deliberately kept small and as there are no other operators on our dive sites there is never a crowd underwater to spoil your view – see fish not bubbles! Since we started diving here in 2003 we have discovered many great dive sites and a host of amazing marine life.
We have a variety of sites from dramatic wall dives and coral covered reef slopes to adrenalin buzzing drift dives. Frequent encounters with turtles, sharks, eagle rays, barracudas and of course all those other fantastic tropical reef fish. Soft and hard coral grows prolifically and magnificent gorgonian fans host multicoloured crinoids and longnosed hawkfish – a photographers delight!
We are very lucky to have incredibly easy access to all our dive sites. At Taqage he furthest away is 10 minutes by boat and the closest has been recorded at 19 seconds! This enables us to offer the deeply civilised option of a morning two tank dive returning to the Rydges Hideaway Resort between the dives for a restoring cup of tea or even a hint of breakfast. We are also usually back from the second dive by 11.30, giving you the rest of the day to do all those relaxing holiday things that you can’t do bobbing around on a boat.
From Mango Bay the boat zooms straight off from the beach in front of the dive shop, again to divesites dotted along the Coast a short boat ride away. Here too we usually return to the resort between dives
We dive Monday to Saturday, usually 2 or 3 dives a day, with night dives on request.
