Land based diving in Fiji

24 October 2016 - 11:16 PM

I am considering Fiji for an approximately two week vacation on Dec 2016 - Jan 2017.

 

I am considering only land based diving. (live a board is not an option for this trip)

 

What i am looking for is a resort with following characteristics:

 

- with good location(relatively closer to major dive spots) - Especially to the famous soft coral dive sites of Fiji

 

- With a dive shop with "a more personal approach" to divers(such as smaller groups, possibility to hire private guide, or boat etc)

 

- Well organised dive operation with sufficient resources(nitrox availability, camera room etc.)

 

- The possibility to organise 3-4 dives per day( a year ago, when i planned a trip to Fiji had some correspondence with some major resorts and was informed that what they do is two tank morning dives. no dive organisation for the afternoons)

 

- Snorkelling friendly (wife is a snorkeler) 

 

- 4-star or higher level accommodation

 

I would appreciate to hear any experiences in that location that may help me to finalise my plans.

 

Thanks in advance for valuable assistance.
