Taveuni Ocean Sports invites each and every diver and marine enthusiast to come and experience some of the richest and most dynamic scuba diving, snorkeling, and surfing in the world.
We offer world-class PADI scuba diving courses, tours and packages on the garden island of Taveuni, Fiji – from introductory dive courses all the way up through PADI Divemaster.
We guarantee very small groups of never more than 6 guests per charter so that we can assure the most personalized water sports adventures in all of Fiji.
Come and dive or snorkel with us to see for yourself why the Cousteau family calls Fiji the “soft coral capital of the world” and why Scuba Diver Magazine has repeatedly rated Taveuni dive sites among the top ten on the planet.
Taveuni diving is exceptional because the narrow channel of the Somosomo Straits act as a large funnel during tidal changes, delivering plankton and nutrients to unspoiled reefs. These currents are the foundation of all life in the ocean. This unique upwelling process across Taveuni’s Rainbow Reef hosts approximately 390 species of corals and 1500 species of fish. The nearby waters offer everything from large pelagics like sharks, tuna, and barracuda to small vibrant nudibranchs and clouds of reef fish
With Taveuni Ocean Sports, you will explore bottomless vertical walls and drift past endless colorful soft and hard corals. We guarantee the safest, most comprehensive, satisfying, and memorable diving, snorkeling, and surfing experiences available on Taveuni. Come and experience world-class diving with Taveuni Ocean Sports—the way diving should be!
