Combine this with the comfortable, resort accommodation which compliments the beauty of the surrounds, it results in an experience as authentic as Taveuni itself.
Taveuni Dive Resort has its own dive operation, Taveuni Dive.
Based in the resort it has four modern custom-built LEEDA aluminium, self-bailers, thoughtfully designed for ruggedness and stability. Due to the location of the resort, Rainbow Reef is a 15-minute resort to reef experience. Rainbow Reef is renowned for beautiful coloured fish, rays, reef sharks, and turtles, soft and hard corals. This is due to the Somosomo Strait which has strong tidal currents, which in turn provides a constant flow of nutrients, idyllic for soft coral growth and diverse ecosystems. Fiji offers over 1198 fish species and more than 230 soft and hard corals. Taveuni Dive also visits the Great White Wall and Vuna Reef (please check schedule and diver demand). The Great White Wall derives its name from the ice coloured soft coral below 20m/66ft, which keeps ongoing.( This is a deep dive and only done on a slack tide, hence limited visits). Vuna reef is at the Southern end of Taveuni Island and is subject to currents which bring the larger Pelagic Fish in - Giant Tuna, schools of Maceral and in season Manta Rays (November to May).
