Comments First time at Dive Kadavu, have dove this island before but mostly the Astrolab Reef that time. All dives are on the north side of island and all within 15-20mins of resort. Large swells on this visit which caused a lot of lower the usual visiblity dives. The warm water has really effected reefs here, reef tops all brown or covered with algea. Don't know if it is from overfishing in the area but very little fish life on most of the reefs, not what we're used to for Fiji diving. Had read other reader reports about dive operation not taking day trips to Astrolab Reef but we had no problem even though only 4 of us went out. Diving much better out there. Resort is lovely and well maintained. Meals very good, owners are very friendly and helpful. No A/C in rooms but fans keep it cool at night.
