Taveuni's Signature Dive: Great White Wall
Do you love Great White Wall or are you interested to know more about this famous dive site? Great White Wall is not only one of Fiji's signature dive sites, it's entirely unique! This dive combines drifting along a gorgeous wall covered in soft coral with several swim throughs. No other wall dive on Rainbow Reef possesses such a unique phenomenon!
|Drifting Along Great White Wall|
Great White Wall has several swim throughs, one of which descends down to about 24 meters (80 feet). Upon exit you begin your drift past the Great White Wall. Each swim through is very wide and able to accommodate divers side by side. Both experienced and new divers alike can enjoy these swim throughs! They are not only beautiful, but full of fish, coral growth and light!

|Colored Soft Coral on Great White Wall|
Great White Wall must dived at specific times when the coral is in full bloom. Soft coral polyps open and feed on the nutrients in the current. You can examine the blooming coral up close or you can swim out into the blue and fully appreciate Great White Wall in all it's glory!
|Expansive Great White Wall|
In addition to Great White Wall's famous white soft coral, there are many other colored soft corals to appreciate, such as this outcropping of pink and orange soft coral.
|Even More Soft Coral on Great White Wall|
At the end of your dive you can enjoy the top of the reef, teaming with life and more color! We invite you to join us here in Paradise and experience the magic of Great White Wall!

Christmas tree worms can be spotted on most dives. Their unique shape provides great practice for photographers working on their depth of field and focus.

Moray Eels can also be an interesting subject for macro photographers, while not the most obvious and easy choice for a photography, they are a fascinating subject to capture.

If you look closely you might even spot a Banded Coral Shrimp cleaning a Moray Eel. Banded Coral Shrimp are one of many species that help an overwhelming number of marine wildlife stay free of parasites. If you are night diving on our house reef, Banded Coral Shrimp can be spotted in endless array.

|Christine Riley, Pro Dive Team Member & Dive Guide|
Christine learned to dive after taking a Discover Scuba lesson and fell in love with the beauty beneath the sea. Her favorite marine creature is the turtle, however small critters are a close second she says! Her favorite dive site is Purple Wall at Rainbow Reef, where she relishes in the striking colors of the soft corals found there.
|Soft Coral and Black Feather Star at Purple Wall|
Christine's perfect day of diving would be three dives out at Rainbow Reef, starting with The Zoo, and then onto White Wall at full blossom. To round out a great day of diving she would do a third dive at Annie's Bommie, where she can admire large coral bommies booming with life and color.
In her free time Christine loves to spend time with her family. What she likes most about her native Fiji are its people and its beautiful terrain. If she had to leave her homeland for a dive trip, her dream destination would be Bonaire.
As a Pro Dive team member she enjoys meeting people from all walks of life and learning about their cultures, and of course diving with them!
Christine remembers a very funny moment when doing her Divemaster training here at Paradise with fellow teammate, Joeli. Joeli was paired with an English gentlemen and the duo needed to work out an air sharing strategy while taking off and exchanging their gear with eachother. Christine completed her task with flying colors however Joeli and his partner lost count of their breathing and both members had to shoot to the surface. Of course no one was injured, everyone learned from their mistake with a good laugh!
Come dive with Christine and our Pro Dive Team here in Paradise!
