Soft Coral Capital of the World
Fiji is known as the Soft Coral Capital of the World, with abundant soft corals in a wide spectrum of colors. It is also home to several sharks. Taveuni Dive Resort is adjacent to the marina where the dive fleet is moored, reducing the room-to-reef time to 15 mintues. This is the shortest commute to the famous Rainbow Reef on Taveuni Island. These reefs lie in the Somosomo straight which usually has some current. The Great White Wall is diveable only a few times per month, and it looks like we will hit it at the right time! Tavenui, the 'Garden Island of Fiji,' also has birds, hiking, and waterfalls. Travel to the island is via a domestic flight from Nadi, which is a little over an hour long and not included (NAN-TVU). Space is limited, there are only 8 bures (bungalows) at the resort.
