1. Edge of Reality
Easy dive (10–14m)
A dive site close to the desert island of Yavuriba, where the depths plunge from 2m to 30m over a sheer submarine cliff. Cruise the craggy west wall scanning the blue for Spanish mackerel and trevally, before turning on to the gentler north slopes, with some tight swim-throughs, hard coral patches, and usually a resident white tip reef shark. There is always a good chance of seeing Hawksbill turtles and eagle rays.

2. Dunk’s Canyon
Easy/Intermediate dive (12–16m)
Dunk’s Canyon is an exciting wall dive. The edge of the drop off is alive with reef fish and soft and hard corals and the wall plunges steeply into over 30m of deep blue water. With its location near the remote Sacred Islands, it’s a great site for less common fish species and usually offers some pelagics.
3. Sherwood Forest
Intermediate dive (14–24m)
Swim out on the northern side of the pinnacles through forests of Gorgonian Sea fans. Majestic as they sway in the current breeze pause to check out fish that live in and around them: large trumpet fish, banded pipe fish, coral trout, many spotted sweetlips and marbled groupers. Shallowing up, the tops of the pinnacles are swarming in fish life: sergeant majors, sleek surgeonfish, unicornfish, fusiliers, wrasses, bannerfish, damsel fish all of all types. On good visibility days look out for scad mackerels, barracuda, trevally and Spanish mackerels.
4. Magic Mushrooms—(Giant Clams Site)
Easy dive (12–20m)
Less than five minutes from Tokoriki, Magic Mushrooms is a small coral platform reef that rises to within 6m of the surface. The shallows have good hard corals, whilst the walls and ledges beautiful soft corals. Large mushroom shaped massive porities corals give this site its unique nature. The undercuts between these structures are home to a variety of creatures: blue spotted sting rays, banded pipe fish, sweetlips, semi-circle angelfish to name a few. This site boasts many endemic species of fish and giant clams and is a fascinating macro dive site. Magic Mushrooms is of scientific interest due to the PADI Project AWARE funded “planting” of the endangered Tridacna Gigas giant clam. This site is unique to Fiji.
5. Tokoriki Wall
Easy dive (12–18m)
Our favourite beginner divers site—shallow and sheltered, two minutes from Tokoriki and yet covered in coral and great fish life. Dives start and end at the mooring making for easy descents and ascents. When the tide runs in a brisk current creates a frenzy of activity amongst the myriad reef fish that make this reef their home. Tokoriki Wall is also an excellent night dive location. White tip reef sharks are often seen as well as crustaceans, octopus, feathery crinoids, nudibranchs and pleurobranchs. On the sand search for exquisite sea pens and tube worms. Phosphorescence is common.
6. Blue Coral Reef
Easy dive (6–16m)
Blue Coral reef is famous world wide amongst marine biologists. Up until November 2005 it was thought that Heliopora Caerulea, or blue coral, did not exist in Fiji. It was discovered growing on this reef just five minutes away from Tokoriki, and as yet remains the only discovered reef in Fiji where blue coral grows. What gives this coral its name is not its exterior colour, but its skeleton. Blue coral reef has excellent quality coral cover including some very old corals. A very pretty site that is totally unique to Fiji. Look out for Hawksbill turtles.
7. Tokoriki South Wall
Easy dive (12m)
A shallow, sheltered easy going dive for the beginner, or certified diver who wants something simple and cruisey. Prolific coral cover blankets the shallow drop off, whilst out on the sand are hundreds of coral outcrops teeming with small reef fish. Look on the sand for sting rays, shells and holothurians and to the reef for parrotfish, wrasses, blue green chromis and neon damsels. A very pretty dive just a few minutes away from Tokoriki.
8. North Reef
Easy/Intermediate dive (6–20m)
Coral encrusted pinnacles abbutting a large shallow reef. Rich fish life and turtles.
9. Shrimptastic
Intermediate dive (22m)
Sitting just off Tokoriki Wall, this small pinnacle provides a unique dive for macro lovers. Corallomorphs, the most ancient of all corals, smother this small reef, and glass fish are so thick that you are pushing them out the way for closer inspection of what has become one of the most fascinating sites we have dived… Armies of Durban Hingebeak Shrimp patrol the coral stems, whilst Ghost Shrimps and White Banded Cleaner Shrimp offer a manicure or teeth clean …yes it’s true…if you extend your hand out both species will give your fingernails a “clean”. Jelly Shrimps dance like fairies amongst exotic anemones, whilst Sexy Shrimp sway more seductively with their bottoms up! If that’s not enough, if you can find the Harlequin Shrimps, you may also find a Moray Eel or Octopus visiting them for a clean. The reef is also home to Pipe Fish – a relative of the Seahorse.
10. Salamanda Wreck
Advanced/Intermediate dive (28m)
Descend to the sea floor and swim the length of the hull from the bow to the stern. Ascend to the main deck and return forrard along partially enclosed gangways pausing to enter the open cabins and making a quick trip to the head if needed! Once on the foredeck ascend to the bridge for a captain eye’s view and then finally move to the dance floor for a quick dance! Finally check out the soft corals and anemones on the main mask, before swimming back to the fixed mooring and final ascent.
11. Wilson’s Point
Easy dive (5m–14m)
Wilson’s Point is great for those just starting out, due to its close proximity to land, shallow depth and sheltered location; but also for more experienced divers looking for something a bit different. Boasting cleaning stations, unusual sand dwellers and a stunning coral reef plateau, this shallow dive is one of our favourites.
12. Anna’s Reef
Easy dive (8m–16m)
Nestled on the eastern side of Monuriki Island, Anna’s Reef is a very sheltered, shallow reef, in a stunning location. With the tide running in, enjoy schools of fusiliers and surgeonfish in the blue, whilst the reef top is home to the usual territorial damsel, angel and butterfly fish. White tip reef sharks and turtles are often spotted, with the occasional huge bump head parrotfish.
13. Monuriki Garden
Intermediate dive (16–26m)
Hard coral heads rise up from white sand—its worth spending a minute or two checking under them—hidden delights sometime await such as resting turtles, shark and on a more regular basis lionfish. Cruising away from the main reef we pass over a field of garden eels before arrival at a soft coral encrusted low lying pinnacle. Back on the main reef marvel at the colours of hundreds of christmas tree worms. As the dive shallows up enjoy swimming over a hard coral garden, seeking out giant clams as you go. Looking out into the blue you may see white tip reef sharks and passing pelagics. Monuriki Garden has been made into a Marine Reserve.
14. Saki’s
Intermediate dive (12–20m)
Swim over a garden of hard coral to a drop off. Cruise along the wall until you reach the pinnacle, were multitudes of reef fish await, and if you are lucky a sleeping white tip reef shark. Continue along the soft coral encrusted wall gradually ascending to the lip of the reef, amongst swarms of sleek surgeons, bannerfish and yellow tailed fusiliers. The reef top has breathtaking coral and swarms of reef fish. Lazily cruise in the shallows , looking out for giant clams, egg cowrie shells and the very rare palette surgeonfish.
15. Bird Rock
Advanced dive (32m)
The reef at Bird Rock, close to Matamanoa Island drops from 5m to 32m plus. The lip has plentiful hard corals with lots of anemone fish while deeper live schools of paddle-tail snappers and some large bump head wrasses. Occasional grey reef sharks are also seen here.
16. Seven Sisters
Easy dive (2–14m)
A colourful hard coral reef that makes for a relaxed snorkel or easy dive. The reef is home to many different species of hard coral and giant clams. Small reef fish are plentiful and include: sergeant majors, two-dot snapper and yellow-banded goat fish. Also look out for the resident red bass, blue fin trevally, Hawksbill turtles and white tip reef sharks.
17. The Supermarket
Advanced dive (16–30m)
If you want to see sharks and lots of them then this is the dive for you! Resident grey reef, white tip and black tip reef sharks cruise along the South Wall. Swim out away from the reef into the blue for sitings of pelagics. The shallows are home to lots of moray eels.
18. The Outer Limits
Advanced/Intermediate dive (16–18m)
A calm weather site where Mana Passage meets the open Pacific. Drift a steep wall with lots of snapper and big cray fish; then swim onto the reef top amongst swathes of soft coral and swarms of fusiliers. Look out and up for barracuda, Spanish mackerels, huge schools of surgeonfish and red-tooth triggerfish. Watch out for eagle rays, white tip and grey reef sharks.
19. Gotham City
Advanced dive (16–26m)
Two pinnacles in the middle of Castaway Passage, Gotham City is often subject to relatively strong currents, but these are avoided by ducking into the lee of the pinnacles. Gotham City is so named for the batfish that live around these pinnacles. It is also home to dense schools of blue striped snappers, giant moray eels, bump head wrasses and large groupers. Pelagics such as blue fin trevally, Spanish mackerels, barracuda and scad mackerels are also visitors. A great fish dive!

20. Edenville
Shallow drift dive (6–14m)
Situated around eight minutes away from Tokoriki on the fringe of Tavua Island, is an easy, shallow drift dive called “Edenville”. The villagers of Tavua Island have made the reef “tabu” meaning that at least for the moment, no fishing is allowed. As a result the site boasts large numbers of good sized parrot fish, surgeon fish, sweetlips, coral trout, red bass and snappers. One often sees eagle rays, blue spotted sting rays and hawksbill turtles, as well as giant clams and cray fish. The coral cover over the reef is very impressive making the dive popular with divers of all abilities.
