Subsurface ( 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.
