Comments The day trip on South Seas cruise (15 min.) from Denarau island, lunch and the diving was about $242,USD for 2 tanks; no tip expected. A small boat would take divers out to the wreck or to the "Fish Village". Then, we work our way back to shore. The viz was very bad for the wreck; no penetration. Fish Village had some coral and tropical fishes. The viz was better than the AM wreck dive. The lunch was ok.
The 2nd dive was delayed 1 hr. due to the tanks not ready.
Nothing great especially compared to Beqa lagoon, Bligh waters, Tavenuni, or Kadavu.
Even though I was recovering from Sinus problem, I did not do another day trip diving due to the bad diving in the Mamanuca islands. A non-diving native said the diving was much better in the Yasawa islands.
The resort, World Mark by Wynham, on Denarau island was ok.
