Fun diving!

Already a certified diver?  Then fun diving is what it’s all about! Let us take you out to explore Fiji’s beautiful diving!  With an incredible variety of over 20 dive sites close to Treasure Island you will not be disappointed!

Whether you like coral pinnacles, walls, sandy flats, swim-through’s, wreck dives or shark dives we will find the dive site for you!  We offer up to three dives per day at 09:00, 11:30 and 14:30 with night dives done on demand.  All of our dives are boat dives (although shore dives can also be arranged) and are all led by our PADI professional dive team who have extensive knowledge and experience diving the reef around this area.  With the majority of our dives sites within a 15 minute boat ride we offer single-tank dives with your surface interval back at the resort.  Two-tank dives can be arranged to certain sites on request and are subject to availability.

At Treasure Island’s Dive Center we aim to differentiate your Fiji diving experience with smaller groups, longer bottom times and valet diving service.  Our friendly, helpful staff will take care of everything so that you can spend more of your holiday relaxing in your hammock!

For divers traveling light we offer a complete set of scuba gear rental as part of our dive packages.  All of our equipment is brand new as of February 2018 with a full range of Cressi Start BCDs and XS Compact MC5 Regulators.

Here is a selection of our favorite dive sites:

  • The Outpost – Located in the heart of the marine sanctuary are three pinnacles rising from the bottom of the plateau. A great hang out spot for Hawksbill Turtles, schools of Trevallys and small reef sharks!
  • Jackie’s Reef – An incredible variety of both large & small fish. With Beachcomber resort having fish fed here for a number of years the sheer quantity of fish on this site is hard to believe – it’s truly like swimming in an aquarium! Great for first time and experienced divers alike.
  • Salamander – An old, decommissioned 40m cruise ship sunk in around 25m of water. This ship, having been underwater for a number of years, is now covered in soft corals and anemones. Giant puffer fish, cleaner shrimp and lion fish like to call this site home.
  • The Supermarket – One of our most exciting and popular dives! Have the chance to dive with grey, white-tip and black-tip reef sharks on one of the healthiest sections of reef around!
  • Rainbow Reef – As the name suggests this site is a feast for the eyes! Colorful plate and table corals attracting a huge variety of tropical reef fish.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Is the water cold? No!  We are blessed with beautifully warm water year round in the Mamanuca Islands.  Ranging from 25 – 31 degrees we have 3mm shortie wet suits available for those who feel the cold.
  2. I haven’t been diving in a while, can I still dive? Absolutely! If it’s been over six months since your last dive then we require you to complete a refresher in our dedicated dive training pool and then you’ll be ready to go!
  3. How deep and long will I dive? The majority of our dives last between 45-60 minutes (air supply dependent) and will be well within the no-decompression limits. We are blessed with a range of dive sites with varying depths and will tailor the sites to suit your certification level.
  4. How long must I wait to fly after diving? For a single dive you must wait a minimum of 12 hours before flying.  For multiple dives a minimum of 18 hours is required.
  5. Is dive insurance required? We strongly recommend that our guests purchase comprehensive dive insurance for participating in both courses and guided fun diving.  Please remember that we are in a remote location and in the unfortunate event that treatment was required medical evacuations can be costly without the correct insurance.  Many standard travel insurance plans will cover scuba diving but please make sure you read the fine print for all the details.  If in doubt, take out a separate dive insurance plan.
