The most awsome experence! | Scuba Diving Magazine

At the end of our first week my daughter and I parted ways and she went back home and I went onto Matava Eco resort on the Island of Kandavu.

It was about a 30 min. plane ride there from Suva. Then a 45 min. boat ride to the resort. Was met by the resort host Maggie. He was the best, funny, hilarious and attentive. Always there with a drink for you checking to see if you were comfortable. A shout out for George again very helpful. He escorted me over to the village one day and to the waterfall, great time.

It is an eco resort but other than not having plug-ins in your Bure they were very nice and comfortable. The food there was outstanding! several nights there the catch of the day was turned into Shashimi, hope I spelled it correctly. The main bure had charging stations.

The dive shop was small but it was adequate. You could see the Astralobe reef from the resort. The diving there was out of this world. There were soft corals and massive walls of hard corals. The high light of this location was the Manta reef dive. It was only 20 min. ride to the reef. We saw 2 of them thay were about 15 to 20 ft. across. The most awsome experence! I also came across a sea crate, but all I got was a video clip that I cannot post here, rats.

I also did a night dive there that was great in its self but the night sky was breath taking and you could see the southern cross as if it was close enough to touch it. It was the best trip of my life so far. The people, the diving and the location. Enjoy, oh yes if you go to my face book address (Dave Wyatt) you can see the video clips and some of the other pics I took.
