Comments Subsurface (www.fijidiving.com) seems to operate throughout the Fiji islands. There were three divers at our resort, and we picked up one or two divers each day at other nearby resorts. The crew was very accommodating and helpful, which was refreshing in a place that does not expect tips. It is not a fancy operation, but well run by knowledgable dive masters who showed us many things we might have otherwise missed. Unfortunately, much of the coral is in very poor condition, due to a warming trend (water 86 degrees at 60 feet)and possible lack of protection from divers and fishermen, Still, I saw many species of fish I had never come across in the Carribean. Quite a few brillantly colored juveniles.
I stayed in a timeshare exchange bure that was well equipped, clean and spacious, but not air conditioned. My bure only had one fan -- next visit, I'm requesting a two-fan bure. The grounds were beautiful and the food good and fairly reasonable. Others who were paying by the night all agreed their accommodations were lovely. No TV, no radio, no telephone makes the heat bearable! And the people are very friendly.
