TUKINI & SERUA WALL: This wall dive contains a series of hidden caverns waiting to be explored. Enjoy the great sea fans and hard coral reef life that is densely packed along the wall. The site offers a good chance of close encounters with White Tip Reef Sharks along with green and Hawksbill Turtles.
TWILIGHT ZONE: For the more experienced diver. Rather than the coral reef structure that is typical to the area, this site offers a drift through volcanic formations leading down to a deep sandy valley with schools of Barracuda, Eagle Rays, Stingrays, Leopard Sharks, Guitar Sharks, White Tip Reef Sharks, Grey Reef Sharks, and Turtles.
FRIGATES WALLS: Big pinnacles coated in schools of purple Anthias. Spectacular swim-throughs. Amazing walls covered in soft coral, home to Moray Eels, Octopus, and assorted critters. White Tip Reef Sharks sleeping on sandy bottom and Grey Reef Sharks cruising. Turtles up near the surface and occasionally a ray or larger shark can be seen cruising by.
PONTI’S PLAYGROUND: Maze of colourful corals coating large Bommies folding out off a steep drop off. White Tip Reef Sharks resting on the bottom and potentially a leopard shark. The sides of the Bommies are home to Moray Eels, Nudibranchs, and a whole host of fish life over the top of the coral heads. Hard Coral gardens sloping towards the shallows.
TASU II WRECK: Deliberately sunk in 1994, TASU II was a 200 ton Taiwanese fishing vessel. Upright, on a sandy bottom, surrounded by garden eels, in about 80FT of water next to Yanuca Island. A well protected spot. Provides shelter to many reef fish and juveniles. Sponges and corals are starting to encrust her and every passing year she becomes more and more beautiful in her mantle of living reef. She offers a good chance to see Pipefish and Whip Coral Shrimp.
FANTASEA: An aptly named site – a most enlightening display of soft corals and anemones completely cover this stunning lone pinnacle creating a rainbow of colour. An undercut ledge is home to an array of massive Gorgonians while the pinnacle is home to Blue Ribbon Eels, Blue Dragons and Mantis Shrimps. Exploring this site makes it clear why Cousteau labelled Fiji as the ‘soft coral capital of the world’.
SIDE STREETS: A beautiful dive site consisting of dozens of coral heads covered in life – almost too much to take in on 10 dives – let alone 1. Spectacular blend of hard and soft corals mixed with huge and plenty Gorgonians in vivid colours of reds, yellows, purples and pinks, this site is a photographer’s dream. Canyons and gorgeous swim-throughs harbor giant black coral bushes and sea whips. Multitude of fish life from Emperor Angel fish to White Tip Reef Sharks.
Golden Arch: A series of coral Bommies with a massive archway covered in vibrant soft corals which lead to a swim through. Rocky pinnacles encrusted with fans and black coral bushes – this is a glorious dive with plenty of colour. Reef Sharks, Barracuda & large schools of fish are often sited here.
CAESAR’S ROCK: A series of spectacular coral heads riddled with tunnels and caverns. Covered in soft corals of every imaginable colour! Huge Gorgonians and black coral bushes ensure great opportunities for the photographer. Schools of small bait fish mingle with Batfish and the chance to see Blue Ribbon Eels. A stunning dive site.
