CORAL REEFS


Coral Reefs represent one of the world's most spectacular beauty spots. 


The mention of coral reefs generally brings to mind warm climates, colorful fishes and clear waters. However, the reef itself is actually a component of a larger ecosystem. 
They are the foundation of marine ecosystem, housing tens of thousands of marine species. Many divers come to Paradise Taveuni just to witness the excellent soft coral blooms.


The nutrient rich waters promise plenty of pelagic fish species when diving in Taveuni.
For this reason, coral reefs are often referred to as the"rainforests of the oceans." They are important fishery and nursery areas, and more recently have proved to be very important economically as tourist attractions.


Paradise Taveuni offers each divers opportunities to discover the beauty underneath the Taveuni waters.



Stay in Paradise during your vacation and get to dive in coral reefs.

You can choose from our 50% OFF DIVE SPECIALS valid till March, 2018 and pick the one that suits your needs.

Diving In Paradise


Taveuni's nickname "Garden Island" applies not only to the landscape, but also to the underwater coral gardens. Taveuni is ''The Soft Coral Capital of the World'' and Paradise is in the heart of it - here you will experience some of the best diving in Fiji, if not the world. 

Paradise Taveuni is the only resort on the island offering diving on pristine 'Vuna Reef' as well as the world renowned ‘Rainbow Reef’. With over forty dive sites to offer, you won’t visit the same site twice, unless you want to.

Many divers come to Taveuni just to witness the excellent soft coral blooms that occur when the current is running just right. The coastline around Paradise Taveuni has several dive sites on offer, many at Vuna Reef are sheltered from the prevailing island winds. After only a ten minute scenic boat ride from the resort, you will arrive at one of the best sites in the region, Coral Gardens.

Paradise Reef is the house reef of Paradise Taveuni, which is easily accessible by a giant stride entry, from the marina's jetty and can be dived on any tide and at any time of the day. Paradise is also home to "The Great White Wall".

 Divers from all over the world choose ParadiseTaveuni to experience the extraordinary formations of hard and soft corals and an abundance of fish life including Blue Ribbon Eels, Leafy Scorpion Fish, Reef Sharks, Rays, Turtles and even our own resident Cuttlefish. 

Paradise now offers the Enriched Air Diver Specialty Courseand it’s easy to see why Nitrox is so incredibly popular – longer decompression time means more underwater time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. You can typically stay down longer and get back into the water sooner. No wonder we are seeing many Paradise divers enjoying the benefits of Nitrox diving.

Here in Paradise so many things will leave a beautiful smile on your face even if not by a touch but just by glancing at it and one of them is the starfish.

Bula Everyone!
 
My name is M.J.  I’m the new Dive Master in Training (and aspiring Blogger) at the Dive Shop, here at Paradise Taveuni Resort.  I hail from the desert of Arizona, where over the years I have filled a variety of roles from Bartender to Archaeologist.  I’m a lover of reading, chips and guacamole, over dramatic TV shows, and traveling the world.  Fiji is the 20th country I have had the pleasure of visiting and is easily in my top 3 favorites.  Currently, my favorite marine animal(s) are Manta Rays and Fire Dartfish.

What is a Dive Master, you may be asking yourself? 
Well, simply put, they are divers who specialize in guiding other divers, as well as, help instructors with courses.  For a more in depth explanation, you are welcome to come and visit to find out.  Haha.

Why become a DM? 
My reason(s):  “See the line where the sky meets the sea, it calls me.”  Kidding, mostly.  Haha.
In a more serious note, it is a step closer to Dive Instructor, which is my final goal.  I get to spend most days diving some of the most beautiful reefs in the world with some of the raddest animals and get to show other divers them, as well.  And ultimately it’s one of the best ways to show people why protecting the oceans and the life that flourishes within them is important.

Over the next weeks, I’ll be (hopefully somewhat regularly) updating you not only on my progress, but on the rest of the team, cool dives, what I have deemed as Need to Know Dive/Fiji Knowledge, and anything marine that catches my fancy.

Hope you enjoy!
