We recently did our advanced open water scuba course with Matthew and Sara and had a great experience! We not only improved our skills with their help, we also had a great time seeing the beautiful reefs and fish in Natewa Bay. Ocean ventures is the only dive boat in the bay so you are guaranteed to have the dive sites to yourself! The reefs and wildlife there is very beautiful and Matthew and Sara are very fun to dive with! They are both talented dive instructors and just in general fun people to be around.

My teenage son and I did our 4 open water certification dives with Matthew and Sara, and we could not have made a better choice! They were very attentive and patient, helping us to finish the skills easily so we had plenty of time to explore the amazingly vibrant reefs on all 4 dives. As a mom I was concerned about my kid's safety, but we both felt very safe under their guidance. I can't believe we had such a premier location all to ourselves - no other boats in sight! The price was very reasonable compared to the resorts, and the individual attention made it an even sweeter deal. Thanks to Ocean Ventures we are now both certified, and I would not hesitate to dive with them again!

We had an amazing time doing our four open water check-off dives with Matthew and Sara. Their calm presence and knowledgeable expertise made us feel comfortable and excited to dive in Natewa Bay. From helping arrange a taxi to clearly communicating with us during our dives to pointing out and identifying marine wildlife, they truly did it all! We would highly recommend diving with Ocean Ventures.

We used Ocesn Ventures Fiji to snorkel in Natewa Bay Fiji. Sarah and Matthew were wonderful. Sarah took the 4 of us out on two reefs one was a hard coral reef and other was soft coral. I have been diving for 20 years and I never saw such beautiful coral before. The bay is relatively calm and the snorkeling is perfect even for beginners. Sarah pointed out many different types of sea life and explained the many types of coral. I highly recommend this adventure. Howard

Both Matthew and Sara are special individuals that have built an unique dive operation in the hidden paradise of Natewa Bay. It’s a huge bay that has dive sites that are still being discovered. The great part of this location is that the bay is protected so rough ocean conditions are very rare and the water is warmer. Also we were the only boat out there in this massive bay which added to the “coolness” of exploring something more off the beaten path. My family and I were able to dive with them for several days and saw amazing hard coral I was particularly impressed by the size of the table corals and also the colorful zooanthids everywhere. They were able to cater to my daughter as well who is a more timid diver and both Matthew and Sara were in the water. Also safety is very important to them and all dives were planned with plenty of safety margin built in. Also an interesting part of their company is that they are also involved with a lot of community engagement and look to help local villages build unique ecotourism options for folks looking for those less touristy sites. I give them my highest recommendation!

Bula vinaka Samir, and thank you so much for such an awesome review! Sara and I had such a great few days with you, Seema, Aman and Anja, and loved showing you some of our favourite dive sites in Natewa Bay. We really appreciate you highlighting our attention to safety and customer service as they are very important to us, as well as our community engagement and conservation activities. We're still identifying new reefs so hopefully we will have some new dive sites for you all to explore on your next visit. We can't wait to see you again! All the best, Matthew and Sara
