The MV Reef Endeavour is not your average diving liveaboard! This is in fact a boutique cruise ship that provides, among other things, daily diving excursions. So if you want to dive in Fiji and see around the islands from the pampered luxury of a real cruise then this is ideal for you, especially if you are travelling with non-divers.
The cruises tend to focus on the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands in Eastern Fiji, easily accessible from Nadi. The facilities on board are far beyond what a conventional liveaboard could offer. They include: a swimming pool and a top deck spa pool, mini-gym & meeting room and buffet & a la carte dining, freshly prepared on-board from local produce. There is also WiFi in the Tabua suites and in common areas.
There are daily dive excursions: 7 nights (10 dives), 4 nights (6 dives) and 3 nights (4 dives). There is diving on 3, 4, and 7 night Mamanuca and Yasawa Island Cruises, the 7 Night Colonial and 4 Cultures Discovery Cruises and, for the ultimate experience, the cruise to the remote Lau group and Kadavu. Most dive sites are accessed by small boat. Some of the longer cruises include diving around islands such as Tavenui and Kadavu.
You can experience some of the best diving in this part of Fiji as you slip into these calm turquoise waters. From MV Reef Endeavour you will visit remote sites, known for their diverse marine life and amazing colours in warm tropical water. Sea temperatures make diving comfortable even in the middle of winter (average of 25C May to November) and visibility is reliable and excellent, with depths of up to 40m not unusual.
So for an experience of diving, island hopping and cruise-line luxury look no further than MV Reef Endeavour.
