Dive Policy

Dive own profile yes
Enforced diving restrictions The divemasters struck a perfect balance between making sure no one got into trouble and allowing us the freedom to dive our own profiles. I'm sure they checked out our skills and after the first day, we were allowed to dive pretty much as we saw fit.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? yes

Comments Taveuni Dive Resort advertises itself as being created by divers for divers and it's true. Comprised of eight, poured concrete, free standing bures, each bure is well designed neat and comfortable. The housekeeping staff takes great pains to provide personal service, even organizing my toiletries each day and leaving fresh flower arrangements in the room. The Salty Fox Grill and bar serves as the main eating and gathering area located adjacent to a pool that overlooks splendid views of the Somasoma Strait and Vita Levu in the distance.

Just a note to add: While our group could have fit onto one boat, the resort chose to put us on two boats giving us a ton of space. They did this even though it doubled their operating cost for each trip. Kudos to them for doing this.
