Wow, first dive out with the crew from Taveuni Ocean Sports, and we hit the White Wall, one of the best dive sites in the world. Thanks to all the crew for a great week of diving- you can't get better than these guys.

We came to Taveuni with one goal....to Dive! The crew at Taveuni Ocean Sports was knowledgeable, professional and well trained. They made the trips fun and most importantly...SAFE! The crew had the gear prepped and ready every morning and took care of everything after the dive. The Dive Masters prepared a Dry Erase Board brief of each dive, the boat... More

I have been diving all over the world for 20+ years and believe that this operation is at the top of the list. Julie and crew hit all the important criteria: knowledge of local critters, currents, tides, dive sites, safety and true customer service. If you are planning to dive in Fiji there is no reason to look elsewhere.

As an advanced open water diver with over 30 years of diving experience all over the world I would rate Taveuni Ocean Sports TOPS IN ALL areas! Julie and her staff are excellent and it's obvious that this isn't just a job for them but a PASSION. For those looking for a short and accurate review coming to Taveuni THIS... More

We arrived this week for a repeat visit with Julie, et al. First thing we heard, not from The staff but from other divers, was about the rude self-centered arrogant couple diving the day before. I noticed the single 2 star review compared to the 106 -5 star reviews. Other divers say it sounds like the couple they were telling... More

We have been diving with Julie for five years and have learned a lot about diving in current. She is very though in the briefings and tips on how to enjoy the dives. We dove with the couple that wrote the negative report as a second class operation. They were difficult from the very beginning. They would not listen to... More

Although these guys are ok, I still rate them poorly. They do nice fish briefings during the surface interval, have nice snacks and quite ok equipment. But, they give priority to guests from the Taveuni Palma Resort, and bend over backwards for them while dismissing us making us feel like second class citizens. You pay a lot for diving with...

Bula Guys, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We pride ourselves in giving the highest quality dive service available on Taveuni. We are happy that we met some of your expectations such as enjoying our detailed marine biology briefings describing many of Fiji's 2300 species of fish and diving in the soft coral capital... More

If I could give Taveuni Ocean Sports and Julie Kelly 100 stars, that would still not be enough. My wife and I just returned from a trip and Julie and her crew made the experience absolutely perfect. Julie is a gifted teacher, not just about diving, but also about the biology of the area. She is a very kind and... More

It’s easy to rate Taveuni Ocean Sport dive shop: Excellent! :) Julie and her team do a really professional service: comprehensive briefing about the dive site, a very detailed knowledge transfer about marine life during the briefing and surface interval, dive gear is in excellent condition and they know every corner of the Somosomo Strait so they will show you...
