Snorkeling in Fiji

per person

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. On the first day, he will come with you for an introductory snorkel, and the next day he will guide the snorkel and point out some of the wonders of the ocean on a field trip. During the rest of the week, you will be accompanied by our staff, who will guide you to the best spots for snorkeling!

Package Includes:

  • 7 nights twin-share accommodation at Daku Resort in Traditional Bures with private facilities.
  • Breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
  • Guided tours run with your own Marine Biology teacher.
  • Regional Excursions.
  • Airport transfers from Savusavu Airport to Daku Resort.

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.
