Fiji is perhaps one of the furthest destinations from the UK - an ideal spot to get away from it all! You will be based on an island called Nasonisoni - it is situated just off the larger island of Vanua Levu.
Vanua Levu is about 160Km from the largest island in Fiji. It is the second most populated island with major industries being coconut plantations, sugarcane and fishing. The whole area around the island (including Nasonisoni) is popular for its reefs and scuba diving adventures, archeological sites, kayaking and hiking.
Nasonisoni is largely an undeveloped island and has one major village - about 20 minutes by boat from our base. The bures (huts) are located on the beach front and are sheltered by lime, coconut and orange trees. It really is quite primative out here and it's a remote and secluded part of this world!

Climate / Weather
Diving in Fiji is often world class - there are many beautiful and exciting dive sites around the islands. To give you an idea of the underwater world you can expect in Fiji, during your stay you will defintely see wonderful soft corals, several species of shark, all sorts of rays, turtles, lion fish, eels, tutrtles and so much more.
All diving takes place in the stunning un-commercial waters near the camp, meaning volunteers work within undisturbed marine habitats creating some of the best dive opportunities in the world.
Climate / Weather
The rainy season officially begins in December and ends in March. (January and February are traditionally the rainiest months.) The best time for diving traditionally begins in mid April and runs all the way through to December.
