Guided snorkeling with marine biology lectures
The reefs around Vanua Levu provide some of the most rewarding snorkelling in the world – a chance to see the famous soft corals of Fiji, swim amongst clouds of sergeant majors, anthias, damsel fish and jack fish, and see sharks, rays and turtles.
Join us for one of our weeks of Guided Snorkeling weeks with Marine Biology Lectures – a spectacular week of daily field trips, both in boats and from the shore (every day except Wednesday when we find that people are usually happy to have a day to themselves).
We include a full day at the Namena Island Marine Reserve. You will board the Namena Divers boat at the dock in Savusavu first thing in the morning; the trip to the island takes approximately 55 minutes. The island is surrounded by a protected reserve; you will be snorkeling over coral beautiful reefs with a wealth of marine life. You will be given lunch on the private island, and encoraged to explore its sandy beach and the paths in its interior, which give you access to its many birds. The diving at Namena is ranked amongst the world’s best dive sites – and the snorkeling is up there too!
On three evenings, an experienced marine biologist will give talks on the marine environment. On the first day, he will come with you for an introductory snorkel, and the next day he will guide the snorkel and point out some of the wonders of the ocean on a field trip.
During the rest of the week, you will be accompanied by our staff who will guide you to the best spots for snorkeling.
Below the water is definitely the centre of the week, but we’ll also show you a lot of Fiji above the water. Visits to a waterfall, Savusavu town and a local village are included.
