January 14-24, 2024
Fiji is the ‘Soft Coral Capital of the World’ as quoted by Jean-Michael Cousteau. Three hundred and ninety species of soft and hard corals plus over 1200 fish species have created what may be the most colorful reefs in the world. An underwater topography that has caverns, canyons, swim-through, incredible wall dives, and frequent shark encounters entices divers from the palm lined beaches of white sand. Fiji is the perfect pacific island getaway.
