Comments We planned our Fiji trip for July, since Undercurrent reports that water is typically clearer in winter despite possibility for stronger winds. We encountered both of those. During our 2 week stay, we only missed one day of diving due to weather. Since the boat ride to and from Ono Island to Kadavu Airport can be sporty, be prepared to get wet.

Oneta Resort has been recently acquired by a couple from Southern California. They have been improving the resort and developing the Dive Fiji operation. Once you arrive at Oneta, there is not much else to do but dive, eat, sleep, and enjoy the company of staff and guests. All of those were excellent.
