Fiji Liveabord Diving, best scuba in Fiji
Because of the size of Lomaiviti and dive sites being so far out most sites can comfortably only be visited from ship-based diving. There are only a few Liveaboard dive vessels operating in Fiji.
Ships are based on the mainland with easy access to Nadi International Airport. Check-in is often on arrival day and when you wake up the next morning the night cruise has brought you to the first dive site.
To include cultural experience a visit with Kawa ceremony to a Fijian village on one of the islands is often part of the cruise, usually on the last none diving day before departure.
A comfortable way to experience the best of Fiji diving.
