Dive Fiji by luxury liveaboard and experience diving some of the world’s top rated dive sites in comfort.

The S/Y Fiji Siren launched in September 2013 to offer year-round diving in Fiji in conjunction with the Darling family’s Volivoli Resort on Viti Levu. Every thought for the modern diver has been taken into account during her build phase and she follows a similar layout and design to our S/Y Palau Siren liveaboard.

The 40 metre S/Y Fiji Siren Luxury Liveaboard is the newest member of our liveaboard fleet, first launched in September 2013. She has the same specifications as her sister yachts, the S/Y Indo Siren and the S/Y Palau Siren. The cabins are spacious and luxuriously equipped and can be used as twin or double bedded rooms. The outdoor dining area is very comfortable and provides a fabulous setting for all your meals. The dive deck is perhaps the most spacious and convenient you would have experienced. Aboard the S/Y Fiji Siren we welcome up to a maximum of 16 divers on each trip. This ensures abundant space for all guests.

Fiji is known for its stunning soft corals but divers here can also expect to see a variety of sharks and rays, schools of fish and plenty of smaller creatures.

 

Drift dives, often with strong current, over steep walls and pinnacles should be expected. However we also spend time throughout the trip in sheltered lagoons and coral gardens and take the opportunity to hop ashore for a traditional kava ceremony. Experience diving in Fiji with your favourite liveaboard fleet.

 

North Save a Tack, Namena Reserve

A diverse series of dive sites within the Namena region including reef structures and steep walls. Descending to 30m (100ft) will often mean seeing large pelagics. Schools of big eye jacks congregate here as do hundreds of unicorn fish and red tooth trigger fish. To the outh is a pinnacle known as “Kansas” named for the likeness to the wheat fields of the US State, due to an abundance of golden leather corals. A wide variety of reef fish, anthias and gobies can be seen along with octopus and garden eels

The Nigali Passage, Gau Island,

A deep channel and with an in-coming current attracts schools of pelagic fish. Barracuda and trevally jacks are a common sight at the channel mouth whilst grey reef sharks form schools at just 18m / 60ft. hang out in the channel for most of the dive and watch the action then end your dive in the shallow lagoon as the channel ends. Also of note are the huge groupers that cruise about.

E6 – in Bligh Waters

Starting at just 1m below the surface this large pinnacle drops to over 900m providing a wealth of hard and soft corals along with a cathedral like overhang adorned with gorgonian fans. Eagle rays and hammerheads are known to make an appearance; meanwhile amidst the colourful corals we spot numerous crustaceans and molluscs. We dive this site directly from the S/Y Fiji Siren.

Colourful damsel fish hover over the corals in clusters whilst dog tooth tuna, Spanish mackerel, white tip and grey reef sharks patrol the reef edge.

Mellow Yellow, Bligh Waters

Named for the huge abundance of yellow soft corals, divers can expect to see grey reef sharks, schools of barracuda and plenty of turtles at this site in Bligh Waters. Whilst at night the lionfish, flatworms and shrimps are a delight

SINGAPORE TO FIJI

There is only one directly flight from Singapore to Fiji operated by Fiji Airways. Fiji Airways has regular promotion and sale flight tickets for as low as SGD$ 700.00, making Fiji and ideal destination for Singapore scuba divers. Flights from Singapore to Fiji is daily.

FIJI DIVING SEASON

The dive season is all year round. The winter months of April to October represent the main season for scuba diving in Fiji in terms of visitor numbers, although the visibility tends to peak between the months of July and December when the water is cooler (sometimes, although seldom as cool as 22°C). 25°C is a realistic expectation of water temperatures during this period. It can cool enough in this period to reduce plankton activity sufficiently for the visibility to rise to impressive distances, sometimes exceeding 50m.

November to April are in fact Fiji’s summertime and when the seas are at their warmest – around 28 to 30°C. This is also rainy season and December to March carries a greater risk of cyclones. Run-off from the rivers can reduce the otherwise excellent visibility, particularly on dive sites off the coast of Viti Levu.

For comfort and protection, many choose to dive with a 5mm full length wetsuit during winter months from May to October, and a 3mm full length or shortie during summer months from November to April.

The transition months, where the seasons cross-over are often considered ideal times to visit. They are November, April and May. Things also vary from place to place within Fiji. Morning showers in the highlands of Viti Levu are quite common at any time of the year. Bligh Water’s excellent visibility is seldom reduced significantly even during wet season. Plankton blooms, particularly in rainy season can attract larger creatures such as plankton-feeding whales and manta rays.
