Fiji is fast becoming the diving capital of the Pacific and the advantage of diving with Viti Water Sports is our proximity to some world class sites. Some of our particular favourites include:

Gotham City – Batman doesn’t visit, but bat fish do guard this site which is a soft coral delight featuring all the colours of the rainbow.

Sherwood Forest – Four pinnacles rising out of the deep, the profusion of massive green sea fans gives this site it’s name.
