As the only certified PADI Diving Resort on Ono Island, we offer a professional, safe and relaxed scuba diving in Fiji experience. We have intimate and comprehensive knowledge of the Great Astrolabe Reef so always know the best sites for the daily weather conditions. Given the small size of the Resort and the large size of the dive boat, diving and snorkeling group sizes are always relaxed and comfortable. Most of our dive sites can be snorkeled giving options for the diver and non-diver alike. The Reef offers amazing drift dives in big open passages such as Naiqoro to the south east of Ono Island, to turquoise swim throughs at Alacrity Rocks. Any depth and any experience level will enjoy and respect the Reef and its inhabitants. You will see the Reef come alive with the most extraordinary and beautiful array of tropical South Pacific Ocean life. Nudibranch, Shark, Manta Ray, Eagle Ray, Dolphin, Whale, Turtle, Hump Head Wrasse just to name a few.
The Resort has access to special sites inside the lagoon that are environmentally managed marine reserves and manta ray cleaning stations which are protected by various village families.
All of our dive and snorkel sites are within an easy 30 minute boat ride of the Resort.

We create daily dive plans tailored to the requirements of our diving and snorkeling guests that factor in your experience level, the tides, the water conditions and the weather.
Safe and spectacular diving is our goal!
Proximity is Everything
The Great Astrolabe Reef surrounds the southern, eastern, and northern tip of the Kadavu Group. On Google Maps, you can see that Ono Island has premier access to the best locations on the Reef. A 30 minute boat ride in any direction will have you at some of the very best scuba diving in Fiji and snorkeling locations. We believe you should spend more time in the water than driving to and from the dive sites.

We use two commercial quality scuba diving boats every single day.
- Alacrity: Special purpose dive boat (8.5m – 225hp),
- Matavura: Mixed purpose dive and fishing boat (7.5m – 150hp)
