Diving the Bligh Channel Fiji

Fiji – soft coral capital of the world and we were going there for a week of diving, sun and lots of fun.  It was mid August and the winter in NZ was making us yearn for some tropical diving, so we packed our bags, got on a plane, bus and boat to reach our destination – Nananu-i-ra.

Nananu-i-ra is a small island on the north side of the main island – with great access to the Bligh channel and the Vatu-I-Ra passge – which has some of the best diving in Fiji.   We stayed at Safari Lodge which is owned by Warren and Steph, who were very hospitable, kind and welcoming.  The food was tasty and plentiful, the beer was cold in the evening, the water was warm but most importantly the diving was AWESOME!!

We saw beautiful soft coral, white tip reef sharks, turtles and much more…we even dived a couple of wrecks.

Now we’re back in NZ and have tropical diving withdrawal symptoms so we’ve booked to go back in April 2013.
