Deep Discoveries: Dive and Adventure Travel Specialists

An unspoiled corner of Fiji, Kadavu is a beautiful mountainous island with waterfalls, rounded hilltops, outstanding beaches and high rocky cliffs. It offers interesting bush walks, charming rockpools, luxuriant native trees and fascinating birdlife, particularly the famous red and green Kadavu parrots.

This traditional and remote island lies about 100km off the main island of Viti Levu. Kadavu is a rugged island almost 60km in length and 14km wide with high volcanic peaks, rolling hills and many indented bays. The dense rainforests offer good hiking trails, some nice waterfalls and several endemic species of birds. Life in Kadavu boasts a very traditional culture with its 12,000 inhabitants living in 70 small fishing villages around the coast, isolated from the world. Village visits can be arranged.

The world famous Great Astrolabe Reef stretches for 30km off the north east coast of Kadavu extending north beyond Ono Island. Here you'll find outstanding hard corals, caves, wrecks and a fantastic array of marine life due to its rich currents. Expect awesome and pristine diving here. Encounters with large numbers of pelagics including mantas will round off the colourful diving on the rich and varied reefs.
