Koro Island Dive Sites
Shark Fin Point
This island has a unique location with currents from the Koro Sea feeding its reefs and providing amazing visibility in crystal clear water. You can expect to see large numbers of fish, from small to very large!
For those chasing the big boys, Koro Island's Shark Fin Point is probably the best bet. When the tide is running, here on the north east side of the island this site can be a great drift dive which will gently take you past all the action. As you are carried on the current you can expect to see a huge school of barracuda as well as eagle rays, white tip reef sharks and plenty of grey reef sharks.
Whale sharks have even been spotted around Koro Island but such sightings are rare so we wouldn't get too excited about the prospect of seeing the biggest fish in the sea.
Colours abound at Shark Fin Point where all the substrate seems to have been colonised by hard and soft corals around which dart all manner of reef fish such as parrotfish, fuseliers, angelfish and butterflyfish. You can also look out for moray eels, and crustaceans such as shrimps and lobsters on this sometimes idyllic drift dive around the beautiful Koro Island.
