diving with manta rays in fiji

Experiences and things to do in the Mamanuca Islands region of Fiji.

Comprising of 20 palm-fringed islands surrounded by crystal clear emerald green water, the Mamanuca Islands Fiji are home to some of the world’s most exclusive resorts.  Located off the west coast of Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island, the region is one of pristine beauty. Visitors can partake in a range of water sports including diving in beautiful coral gardens, surfing world famous breaks, cruising and fishing.

The region is where the Tom Hanks film Castaway was filmed. You can take a day trip to the uninhabited Modriki Island to see various locations where the movie was filmed.

DIVING & SNORKELLING IN THE MAMANUCAS

The region forms a majestic arc of volcanic outcrops which creates two distinctive types of marine environments.  The calm, shallow waters of Mamanuca Lagoon is perfect for novice divers and features lots of coral bommies to explore.  The outer edges has numerous passages where visibility can exceed 35 metres.  Here you’ll find turtles, dolphins, sharks and pelagics. Diving is perfect all year round where water temperatures range from 26-29 C.

Namatu Coral Cay : This spectacular outer reef slope on the edge of a 1,000 metre drop into the Pacific Ocean. Here divers will find abundant fish life including  reef sharks, barracuda and turtles.

Castaway Passage : This large gap in the outer reef allows ocean water to enter the lagoon and divers can see manta rays, sharks, marlin, and other pelagics.

Barrel Heads : A pinnacle rising from the deep, Barrel Heads is home to excellent hard corals, sea fans, reef sharks and turtles.  Lucky divers may also witness large sharks and tuna.

The Supermarket : If a shark encounter is on your bucket list then The Supermarket is a must see.  Here you can swim with grey reef sharks, white tip reef sharks and black tip reef sharks.

Beach-comb along a beautiful sandy beach, enjoy great snorkelling on Monu’s fringing reef and feast on a sumptuous picnic lunch with a bottle of Moet & Chandon.

SURFING IN THE MAMANUCAS

Cloudbreak Fiji : Cloubreak is Fiji’s most famous surf spot. Cloudbreak is rated one of the top ten waves in the world and is on the ‘bucket list’ of most surfers. Depending on the swell direction and power, it can be a long wall with tubing sections, or a very long and critical barrel. Cloudbreak is surfable up to 20ft but is also fun at 2ft. A S-SW swell (the more West the more critcal the wave) with a NE-SE wind make this wave great at any tide. It can be deceptively heavy and if over 6ft is recommended for experienced surfers only. Cloudbreak is located on a sheltered reef, just three miles south of Namotu Island.

Restaurants Fiji : Restaurants (also known as Cloudbreak’s little brother) is also rated one of the top ten waves in the world. Not exposed to the same swell as Cloudbreak, it only breaks in a large SW ground swell but when it does, Restaurants is known as perfection in motion. Also located in the Mamanuca chain of islands, Restaurants is best for advanced to expert surfers.
