Located between the islands of Taveuni and Vanua Levu, the Somosomo Strait is a narrow channel of seawater that’s full of life. Home to the Rainbow Reef and the Great White Wall, it’s a popular site for divers of all skill levels, and many make their way to Fiji specifically to dive here and see the sights. You’ll be able to see coral of all colors of the rainbow, the namesake of this beautiful underwater landmark.

Between Fiji’s two largest islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, you will find Bligh Water. This nutrient rich channel attracts aquatic life of all sizes, making it a great place for a dive if you want to see some fish.
You must be careful where you choose to dive in this area. Some parts of Bligh Water have strong currents, making them appropriate for experienced divers only. If you are a beginner, ask a guide to take you out into the water to ensure that you have a safe experience.
