Diving Taveuni

Taveuni Island is located near Somosomo Strait which has a constant water temperature all year round and creates an ideal living environment for hard and soft corals and marine life, like turtles, reef fish and anemones. Divers come to Taveuni for its legendary Rainbow Reef. The Rainbow reef consist of several bommies adorned with soft corals and rainbow colors. The reef is covered with little orange bass lets, nudibranchs, Christmas tree worms, anemones and crinoids. Apart from that, the place is full of barracudas, white tip reef sharks and leopard sharks moving around with their huge tails.

The Rainbow Reef
The Rainbow Reef is located in the Somosomo Strait. This diving spot is one of the extrodonary dive sites in Taveuni. Some of the most popular spots include the Zoo, the Great White Wall, the Purple Wall, and the Fish Factory.

The Great White Wall
One of the most dramatic diving sites in Taveuni. The site hosts a stunning vertical wall covered in white Dendronepthya soft corals which drops to over 100 meters (300 feet). The place is full of white corals with  little splashes of orange, green and red. Square-spot anthias is the predominant  fish here. 

Patch Reefs
Completely different are the submerged patch reefs which explode with life during rising and falling tides. Among our favorite patch reefs are Rainbow's End, Annie's Bommie, Sam's Point, and the Mini-white Wall.
Tide-generated currents across these reefs bring plankton and nutrients, jumpstarting the entire food chain.
