The resort is gorgeous and well worth the trip to get there. They
recommended Jewel's Bubble Divers, a fairly new dive operation run by a
charming couple, Qio and Eunice Morisio, just a few minutes walk from the
resort. It was named after their 3-year old daughter Jewel, who kept us
company as we were gearing up and seemed to keep an eye on everything. Good
selection of rental equipment. Qio is the head divemaster and took us to
quite a few great sites in the Somosomo Strait, including the famous Great
White Wall and Rainbow Reef. He is very attentive and quick to point out
the tiniest critters. His boat can handle up to six divers and is very
basic. No cover, and that can be a drag in the fierce Fijian sun, although
most sites can be reached in 10 to 20 minutes. Fortunately, the surface
interval is often on a beautiful shaded beach shared by other dive
operators.
