Are you a little concerned about the impact of Cyclone Tomas on your Fiji diving holiday? You have nothing to worry about. We checked in with our dive operators to see how they fared. Their response: “The guests are diving … It’s beautiful weather today!”
When asked about Viti Levu and surrounding islands, Tourism Fiji CEO Josefa Tuamoto said “They remain untouched by the cyclone’s passing”. Tuamoto went on to say that all power and communication lines have been restored in Vanua Levu and Taveuni. Which is great news for your diving at Lagoon Resort and Paradise Taveuni Resort.
On Kadavu, Dive Kadavu Matana Beach Resort was totally missed by Cyclone Tomas as it headed south-east out to the open sea. Matava Resort – The Great Astrolabe Hideaway reported some severe weather, but as they were not in the cyclone’s path everything is A-OK today.
Despite dropping anchor at the Vanua Levu, the island worst hit by Tomas, AS Tui Tai sheltered in Viani Bay and experienced only minimal damage. As a precaution her guests were successfully evacuated and she will lay at harbour this week for some basic carpentry to restore her to her former beauty as one of the world’s sexiest liveaboards.
