Fiji has a number of World Famous dive sites including Astrolabe Reef and Beqa Lagoon located in the Southern Islands and Tavenui, one of the Northern Islands, is home to the World Famous Rainbow Reef. The old Capital Levuka has ship wreak dive sites to explore and the Mamanuca group of islands and Coral Coast have fantastic diving spots with plenty of beautiful tropical fish and lovely corals.
The water temperature is extremely warm, averaging 27 degrees Celsius, with winter temperatures around 25 degrees and summer temperatures can be up to 30 degrees at diving depths of 5 meters. Fiji also has excellent visibility, often 50 meters or more, however the best months for diving are the winter months (May to Nov) as it is the dry season with less rain. The heavy rainfall which causes large amounts of river runoff during the summer months can obscure the visibility during this time especially off the main island Viti Levu.

There are also a number of larger fish including, a number of different types of sharks, manta rays, dolphins and turtles often spotted.
