Itineraries

Fiji Diving Trips (7 Nights & 10 Nights)

Day 0 :
Guests should fly into Nadi Airport (NAN) one day before the cruise.
Before departing the airport, change some money at the bank in the international terminal.

Day 1:
Your cruise aboard NAI’A begins at the Lautoka Wharf at 2:00 pm on Saturday.
The crew will provide transport from Nadi-area hotels and the airport at about 1:00pm.

Once onboard you will receive an orientation while your luggage is taken to your stateroom. Divers will set up their gear right away in preparation for a checkout dive the first afternoon. After setting up your dive gear, light snacks will be served as we make our way to the dive site.

Day 2 - Day 7 / Day 9:
NAI’A’s precise itinerary is weather dependent, however the first location will provide ideal checkout dive conditions – close to Lautoka, relatively shallow and calm.

Diving in Fiji can be challenging due to strong currents and deep drop-offs. If you have not been diving in a while or have difficulty maintaining good neutral buoyancy, we suggest taking a refresher course before your trip. You will enjoy the diving more, take better pictures and, of course, avoid damaging Fiji’s precious coral reefs.

There are no handicrafts for sale in the villages we visit, but you may find time to go to the market before or after your trip. For purchases of anything on land, the currency used in Fiji is the Fiji dollar. This may be exchanged at the airport and in towns, plus withdrawn from ATMs. Please note that handicrafts merchants, taxi drivers, etc. do not accept credit cards. Check xe.com for the most up to date exchange rate.

Day 8 / Day 10:
On the day the charter ends, continental breakfast will be available before we bid you farewell at 8am. Air-conditioned vehicles will transfer you to your hotel in Nadi hotels or to the airport.

If your flight home departs in the evening, we recommend you book a day room where you can store your luggage while you tour for the day and relax and shower before the flight.

Diver's reviews (1)

Xu Xiaodong, 17/08/2014

We REALLY had a wonderful time! Diving was great! Boat, Crew, Food was top notch! We flew from Beijing to Sydney then to Nadi, so it took awhile to get there! Our trip starts and ends in Lautoka, just north of Nadi. The diving is great with vast walls of soft corals, fish and critters! Majority of the diving is in currents, some weak some strong. We rarely dove the same site twice, with the exception of a few we couldn't get enough of. We also did a shark dive that was really fun if you like that kind of dive. During the trip, we did a visit to a Fijian village on Gao Island for a tour. The Nai'a boat was super good, we enjoyed everything onboard. We have been to Similan Islands in Thailand before, and we can say Fiji is even better. Thank you Dive and Cruise for the wonderful trip you planed for us! We would like to go Palau next year with you guys!
