Liveaboard Diving in Fiji

Located at the heart of the South Pacific and at about 4,450 km southwest of Honolulu, Hawaii, Fiji is an invigorating underwater playground for all levels of divers. This country is made up of more or less 300 islands and 500 smaller islets, where a hundred islands are permanently inhabited.

Fiji is made up of hundreds of islands so you can sail from point to point, exploring the miles of reef as you travel. Liveaboard is the only way to see the very best that Fiji has to offer. I usually use this website to book in advance my Liveaboards in Fiji as they usually have the lowest rates I find. I like it because they have an easy booking system.

Best time to go on Fiji Liveaboard

More than just a diving destination, Fiji also offers hiking, nature tripping, interesting culture and its wonderful local people. However, Fiji offers even more when it comes to SCUBA diving! Be ready to be captivated with the corals reefs, astonishing fish and large pelagic species. And liveaboards can make this sighting accessible and more enjoyable.

The dive season in Fiji is all year round. However, the best diving season is between April and October. The visibility tends to peak from July to September, when the surface can be a little choppy and the water is as cool as 22°C. November to April is when the water temperature is around 30°C, which are considered as the summer months in Fiji.


Manta Rays can be seen on summer months because of the abundance of planktons during the said months.

Fiji Liveaboard Routes

Ranging from barely noticeable to very strong, currents are considered as the lifeblood of the reefs that exist in Fiji. The currents sweep the nutrients to corals and fish making them grow in vibrant and rich mode. The currents also affect the water’s visibility which can be the best around.

If one wants to seek a pristine and serene underwater ambiance which is less crowded, the reefs found in Bligh Water and Koro Sea are recommended. However, if you consider yourself as a novice to the diving world, only a few selected sites are in store for you due to strong currents that may prevail more in this area.

Bligh Water is one of the focal points of liveaboards cruising around the island of Fiji. If In Bligh Water you can find E-6 , the site mostly preferred by photographers. It is equally stunning either during the day or night. You can credit it to the awesome scenery and the mixture of the attractive and diverse marine creatures that bring more life to your pictures. Here you can also enter ‘The Cathedral’, an awesome swim-through where light filters down from above making your photographs look more splendid.

A myriad of barracuda, snappers, trevallies, mantas and hammerheads will definitely stun scuba divers in the popular Nigali Passage. Several eye-catching creatures patrol the 3 pillars found in another site called Chimneys at Namena Island in the Koro Sea.
Somosomo Strait earns Fiji the title of being the “Soft Coral Capital of the World”. It runs between Taveuni Island and Vanua Levu where divers can attest to the grand marvellous site created by the colourful soft corals. The nutrient-filled waters of Taveuni also promise plenty of pelagic fish species. A site aptly named as ‘the Zoo’ is where a throng of manta rays, barracudas, and sharks can be spotted.
Regardless of which Fiji liveaboard you’ll choose, you would be assured that any trip will include incredible dive sites.

  1. Have been diving the Rainbow reef with Taveuni Dive based in Taveuni. No need to go on a livaboard as it only takes them 20mins from Taveuni to go to the many fantastic sites on the Rainbow Reef including the White Wall. The soft corals have an amazing variety of colours and there are so many reef fish around. Great service by the crew of Taveuni Dive, safety and enjoyment are their priorities and I have loved all my dives with them.

  2. When you post videos, you should be careful to ensure they are from responsible, respectful divers. Videos showing dive companies and tourists feeding and touching the wildlife and destroying reefs is not good advertising. If this is the usual conduct of these liveaboards, they need to be reported and shut down, not supported in their practices.

    • Hello Claire, thank you for your comment and I completely agree with you. However, I don’t see what video or Liveaboard you are speaking about. Please send me the link. Have a nice day ;-).

  3. The first video on this page about diving with Bull Sharks clearly shows what I’m talking about. I was enjoying the video until the 2:14minute mark. Then the big garbage can of ? shows up and we see divers not only standing and kneeling on the clearly decimated reef but touching the animals. It continues on to show feeding the sharks. Appalling dive practice and this is obviously an ongoing, tourist destination outing for that dive company.
