Asked to picture the tropics most people would see beautiful islands and crystal clear blue water, beautiful reefs and tropical fish - and of course an abundance of water activities. Your preferred and most active water activity may be moving from your beach towel, dunking yourself into the warm water and then wandering back to your towel. But for the more active, the water sports in Fiji are many and varied.
Snorkelling is available just about everywhere and offers many different types of coral and tropical fish, canoeing and kayaking is as easy as dragging your craft into the water and exploring the waters around you. The prevailing south east trade winds will almost guarantee you keep up good speed aboard your windsurfer. Some resorts even offer water scooters and waterskiing.
Sailing can be done either on your resorts' catamarans, or aboard a charter yacht which can take you to wherever you choose to go, bareboat or with captain and crew.
Scuba Diving is available at most hotels and resorts and over 40 major dive operators provide PADI scuba training and certification programs. Fiji offers dive opportunities from soft coral exploration to wall dives and from wreck dives to cave dives. Isolated surf spots like Frigate Pass and Kadavu, where the waves cascade onto reefs, which are margined by deepest blue water, can only be described as breath taking. The surfer is ever aware that he is an exotic animal in this environment. The crystal clear waves occasionally remind him that he is not alone with sharks often coming in to see this odd guest. Fortunately they have never been considered a guest for dinner as a surfeit of natural fare abounds. Fishing in Fiji is favoured all year around. There is simply great fishing for everyone! All methods of game fishing are available in Fiji - choice of group to instruct captain/crew. An overnight charter is also available where the whole family go fishing and catch a great edible fish.
