My boyfriend and I had never been diving before and we obtained our PADI open water certifications from Taveuni Ocean Sports. We were immediately put at ease by the whole crew. The service, facilities, equipment, boats, and vehicles are all top notch. Manasa was our instructor and was very calm, patient, friendly, and professional. Julie has to be one of the nicest people I've ever met. She is incredibly genuine, passionate, and knowledgeable about anything to do with the ocean. We had a lot fun with the entire crew including Viti, Manasa, Julie, Thomas, Wayne, to name a few. We also had the pleasure of having lunch at Robin's, Julie's Mom's, restaurant called the Cliffhouse located at the Nakia Resort & Dive Shop across the street and up the hill from Taveuni Ocean Sports. We did not stay at the Resort but would definitely consider staying there if we return. It's unbelievably beautiful with amazing views of the ocean. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed delicious and fresh food with the other guests that were staying there. We pushed our tables together so we could share stories about our amazing dives and experiences. Sis the dog greeted us when we arrived at the resort. The staff and service were also fabulous at the resort.
The dives were breathtaking. We learned that there are 400 types of coral and 1500 types of fish. The coral were so colorful and vibrant and we were able to see Octopus, reef Sharks, trumpet fish, parrot fish (eats coral and excretes sand-I thought that was so cool!) unicorn fish, Fijian clown fish, magic coral (changes color), grouper and countless other fish. It was an experience of a lifetime!
We would like to return to Fiji in the future and we'll definitely dive with Julie and her staff again!
