Snorkeling in Fiji
Warm waters, safe seas, stunning marine life - in the soft coral capital of the world.
The reefs around Vanua Levu provide some of the most rewarding snorkelling in the world – a chance to see the famous soft corals of Fiji, swim amongst clouds of sergeant majors, anthias, damsel fish and jack fish, and see sharks, rays and turtles.
During the week-long holiday, an experienced marine biologist will give three talks on the marine environment. During the week you will be accompanied by one of our staff, who will guide you to the best spots for snorkeling!
Fiji’s Place in the Coral Triangle
The Coral Triangle is a marine area located in the western Pacific Ocean. It stretches from Indonesia and Malaysia in the west to the Philippines in the north, and Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste, the Solomon Islands and Fiji in the east. Its name comes from the staggering number of corals found in the area: nearly 600 different species of reef-building corals alone. The region is home to:
- Six of the world’s seven marine turtle species
- And more than 2000 species of reef fish.
- Over 120 million people live in the Coral Triangle and rely on its coral reefs for food, income and protection from storms.
- The Coral Triangle has more coral reef fish diversity than anywhere else in the world: 37% of the world’s coral reef fish species (6,000), and 56% of the coral reef fishes in the Indo-Pacific region (4,050).
Fiji lies at the eastern extremity of the triangle and with a population of under one million, is a less populated area. Nevertheless, the reefs are an integral part of life there, and Fiji boasts an abundance of soft corals – as well as many beautiful hard corals.
