We work with Ra Divers, a fully certified PADI and SSI Dive Resort and is one of Fiji’s longest established diving operations, and their staff are renowned for their local knowledge and expertise. There are 4 x 10m dive boats all equipped with marine radio, GPS and cell phones while emergency oxygen, marine first aid kits, flares, markers and life jackets are stowed onboard. The dive centre is equipped with rinse tanks and showers. All equipment is carried and washed daily by the resort's divemasters.
Their vast experience of diving the Bligh Waters has allowed their crew to handpick more than 50 superb dive sites for a truly unique experience. The reefs are some of the healthiest in the world, with very little pollution and few boats, so you’ll be able to see an array of marine life including anemonefish, turtles, colourful soft coral and reef sharks. Some of Volivoli's most popular dive sites are the fascinating wrecks of the Papuan Explorer and the Ovalau. The thrilling 'Breathtaker' deep reef site boasts an awesome display of large fish, whitetip, blacktip and grey reef sharks.
