The dive sites are located to the south and west in the Koro Sea,
with some being:
Big Blue – a spectacular drop off with giant gorgonian fans covered with feather stars. A perfect place to watch turtles, mantas & large fish cruising by.
Hole in the Wall – A vertical drop off supporting huge gorgonian fans, large tuna, Spanish mackerel, barracuda with bronze whalers lurking in the depths below.
Na Sonissoni Passage – A drift dive along a wall covered with every variety of pristine hard & soft coral imaginable. Swim across the passage to the purple bommies, a mass of purple soft corals fed by the nutrient rich Koro Sea, large barracuda, circling gray reef shark and white tips cruise everywhere.
