Take a dive into another world of vivid turquoise waters, abundant with beautiful corals, teeming with an amazing variety of colourful tropical fish - it’s an underwater naturalist’s dream.

Some of the great dive areas - The Great Astrolabe Reef, Kadavu; Somosomo Strait, Taveuni; Suncoast Fiji; Shark Reef Marine Reserve, Pacific Harbour and Mamanuca Islands are some of the great dive areas.

Cloud 9 is a two-level floating restaurant just a 45-minute boat ride from Fiji's main island, Viti Levu.
