If you happen to find yourself in SavuSavu on the Island of Vanua Levu in Fiji you definitely have to visit KoroSun Dive!
We were staying at a Resort which was right across the road, however if you are staying elsewhere on the Island it is quite easy to get a bus, a reasonably priced taxi or hire a car to get there. We have dived in many locations around Australia and Vanuatu and have never had it so easy!
My partner and I hesitated about whether to take our own gear on this trip because of changes by the airlines reducing the oversize baggage dimensions and allowances since our last overseas holiday which meant that using our old dive bags was impractical. Upon reading the reviews of KoroSun Dive reviews however we decided not to and we definitely made the right choice. The quality of gear that the shop provided for us was great, and they have everything. They even load it onto the boat for you! Not to mention the fact that you don’t have to dry your gear out before you fly home!
We had two teenagers with us who decided they wanted to do a Discover Scuba Dive so we went to speak with the shop owners and met Janine who is a lovely, wonderful, friendly lady and a wealth of knowledge about Fiji, traveling and of course diving! We met her husband Colin who was also very friendly and after only a half hour chat made me feel more than happy to leave the kids in their care.
As every diver knows, the weather is never reliable nor as kind or cooperative as we would hope and we had to wait two days before our first dive yet this gave the kids a chance to do their theory and pool work before the big descent later in the week. Colin did predict when the weather would improve and he was spot on! This is always a good sign in a dive shop operator! : )
When the kids finally enjoyed their very first dive, Colin took care of them the whole time introducing them to the Fiji diving experience, and, best of all (well in my opinion) when one of the kids had a premature ascent quite a distance from the boat, it came to get us! No long surface swims!
I highly recommend you try a DSD with KoroSun Dive, even if you have never thought about doing it before, if you decide to, this diving operation is the one to do it with!
The only thing I would mention is if you aren’t keen on diving with sharks, you should definitely say something. They are more than obliging and I am sure would find a dive location that is more coral and fish, and if you are lucky maybe a turtle!
Thank you very much to Janine and Colin, who made our holiday and diving experience stress free! They are reasonably priced, will look after all of your needs, (even for those of you who get seasick) If there is anything at all you would like to know before, during or after your trip, just ask them, email or call and I am sure they will have an answer for you!
Vinaka KoroSun Dive!

Bula Vinaka Family! How lovely to hear from you and to know that you had such a great dive experience with us.

Airline weight and size restrictions are making it increasingly difficult and costly for divers, especially on the domestic leg of the Fiji journey to us. We include all gear in our pricing and are always pleased to hear from our guests that they think we have great gear. We work hard to ensure we have a range of up-to-date & well maintained kit, and by doing so we can help take some of the stress and costs out of travelling to dive with us.
When not being "The Weather Oracle", our bosso levu owner/instructor with around 15,000 dives under his belt, is always excited about conducting Discover Scuba Diver & Open Water courses. Introducing people to the underwater world for the first time, and particularly to our underwater world, is a joy. The smiling faces and happy guests when they come up from their first dive is a thrill every time. And having been a teacher in a previous life, seeing the skill base of the new divers improve with each underwater experience is very rewarding. Vinaka for recommending us!
We have a range of dive sites with diverse marine life. We cannot guarantee you won't see a shark, but we cannot guarantee you will either! But we can take you to places that increase your chances to see or not to see! Let us know what you want to see for sure!
I'm always really happy to answer questions and offer advice prior to arrival or on site. We enjoy meeting people and sharing our world, both below and above water with our guests and we aim to make your holiday stress free and full of fond memories!!!
Vinaka vakalevu for such a great review that covers almost everything!! We really enjoyed your company and look forward to staying in touch to plan future diving adventures! Loloma from the KoroSun Dive Family.
