Private Diving

Truly personalised diving, freediving and courses at the Rainbow Reef and the White Wall - our extended house reef. With only 4 dive guests per boat, our PADI Pros tailor your dives to your bucket list, experience and conditions. The Rainbow Reef requires specific timing. Hence we adapt the dive schedule for an unforgettable dive adventure.

Non Profit

We believe education is key to preserve our environment. Therefore we set up a scholarship program for Fijians to become PADI Pros, teach at the school, offer discovery dives to locals. Visit our coral farming, join community projects or sign up  for our marine conservation programs during your holiday.

Living the dream 

Jone, who lived in Germany for seven years, was always sure that one day he would return to Fiji, start a dive operation, protect the marine life around his home island Taveuni and support the local community.

Marina decided that it was time to quit her management job and pursue her vision: to live in the tropics, support the locals, engage in marine conservation and pass-on her fascination for the underwater world.

Marine Conservation and supporting the local community are at the core of their joint endeavours.

Together we are DIVE ACADEMY FIJI

We invite guests from all over the world to explore the prestigious underwater world of the famous Rainbow Reef, take an excursion to the Manta Reef and participate in our marine conservation activities. Beginners and experienced divers alike will return home with unforgettable memories.

Indulge in authentic Fijian culture while staying with us at Viani Bay Resort or come for a day trip on the Rainbow Reef. We organise transfers from Taveuni, Savusavu / Buca Bay and The Remote Resort. 
Our dive courses range from introductory dives to PADI Assistant Instructor with a broad range of specialities and we are the only PADI Freediving Center in the area.
