We did two days of diving with Wananavu as part of a three week trip to
Fiji.  My son and I started our trip with a week of diving on the
Na"ia, so we were already accustomed to a pretty high standard before
our dives with Wananavu.  

Our experience in diving with Wananavu was first class.  Very friendly and
professional staff. The staff loads your gear on to the boat and washes and
dries your gear at the end of your stay.  My wife and son rented gear; good
quality, no equipment problems. Modern, high speed boat allows you to get
to prime dive spots in less than an hour.  

Excellent selection of dive sites.  The best of Fiji, lots of soft coral,
interesting critters, zillions of fish and dramatic underwater scenery. 
Very comparable to what we experienced diving off the Na'ia.

On the critical side, access to the best dive sites was dependent on the
wind.  We visited during the Fijian winter and most days were quite windy. 
On the Na'ia, this was no big deal.  But from the mainland, windy days
limited the dive sites that were accessible. Our schedule was flexible and
we had already done a lot of diving so we picked two relatively calm days
to dive.  But others who had less flexibility in their schedules had to
deal with some extremely rough conditions if they wanted to dive every day.
 Our experience may not be typical because we visited during winter

As an FYI, the diving was expensive, but, given the remote location and the
exceptional level of service, I thought it was a good value.
