Diveaway Staff in FijiDiveaway 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.

Lionfish face diving in Fiji

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!Moray eeel diving on Coral Coast, Fiji

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

The Best Shark Dive in the World!
  • CITES Implementation Day!
    Today the CITES management of those 7 new species goes live! This is truly a great milestone in Shark conservation. Projects Abroad have been all over it, and celebrated this momentous occasion with a day of awareness, research and education. Well done! And the implementation in Fiji? It's gonna happen - but in the Fijian way. More in a subsequent post!
  • Only Bycatch - Two!
    Turns out that the Tuna longliners have been, gasp, lying! You don't say! Did it really take a "study" to confirm what had been obvious all along and what we here in Fiji had known for years? Anyway. Good that now, it is out in the open - and good that the FFA wants to bring it up and have it banned at the next WCPFC meeting. There will undoubtedly be the usual dirty politics and
  • Scarface and Rusi!
    Terry-fic pic by Terry Goss.   No don't get too excited. This is footage from 2010. We haven't seen Scarface in years and although a very experienced videographer on rebreather reports seeing an enormous Tiger Shark, I fear that she has become the victim of all those pelagic long lines out there. The most interesting bit is at 3:17 where the Bulls, far from being intimidated, are
