Fiji Siren 8-day Itinerary

Day 1: Meet a crew member at the Volivoli Beach resort in Viti Levu and transfer to Fiji Siren. There is usually time for one check dive on the first day.

Day 2: In the Nemena Marine Reserve you will do up to four dives where a variety of sites await you. Deep dives along walls yield the chance to see reef sharks and schooling Big Eye jacks, tuna and Trevally. Sites such as Kansas yield an eclectic mix of reef fish and golden leather corals and the day tails off with some relaxed macro diving.

Day 3: At Savusavu thrills await! Sightings of schools of Scalloped Hammerheads are common here and dives such as Nasonisoni Passage offer speedy drifts with the sharks! More sheltered sites such as Dream House and Goldilocks offer some of the fabulous soft coral diving that Fiji is famed for. Look out for Tiger Sharks too!

Day 4-Day 5: Dives off Taveuni Island continue to please and to thrill. Great White Wall is one of the world’s most famous sites, with its bushes of white soft corals. A negative entry at Rainbow’s End will have you joining the reef sharks as they effortlessly hang in the current as you utilize your reef hook! Shallow coral bommies and coral gardens with Gorgonian sea fans, hard and soft corals harbor Anthias and macro critters.

Day 6: At Koro Island your shark dreams will come true! Behind the curtains of angel and butterfly fish swim reef sharks and eagle rays at Shark Fin Point. Occasionally Whale Sharks are spotted here occasionally so after the third dive a search for these majestic creatures will commence! Day 8: Spend the day channel diving at Gau Island where Grey Reef sharks congregate at just 18 meters as they bustle past the grouper and barracuda.

Day 7: At Wakaya Island we’ll be on the lookout Manta Rays and even more hammerhead sharks! Interesting topography at Wakaya Passage yields swim through and over hangs and calmer sites such as Blue Ribbon Eel Ridge are great places to find Leaf Fish, Gobys and of course, Blue Ribbon Eels!

Fiji Islands Information

Join other lucky divers and adventurers on a special expedition to Fiji to dive with up to 8 different different shark species. There are plenty of land activities so this is a great opportunity for a family vacation or together with non-diving companions.

You will be diving without a cage with large animals that have been baited so that we can get close up images of the sharks.

Not only will you be diving with the main targets, Bull Sharks, but also possibly Tiger Sharks, Silvertip, Lemon, Blacktip, Whitetip Reef Sharks, Nurse and Grey Reef Sharks.

You will be lodged at either Uprising Beach Resort or the luxurious Pacific Pearl Resort on the Pacific Harbor area of Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island. At the Uprising resort you will be in a traditional Fijian style bungalow called a Bure or at the Pearl in a Garden View room. You can also upgrade to a double Ocean View, Penthouse suite, or twin suite. All accommodations are double occupancy. Single supplement available.

Pacific Harbor is called Fiji’s “Adventure Capital” because of the many exciting possibilities to enjoy yourself. The main attractions in the area are both the great soft coral and the adrenaline-pumping shark feed diving, but the choices do not end there. You can also golf on a Trent Jones designed golf course, sportfish, snorkel in the lagoon, surf world-class breaks, jetski, Zip-line and – our favorite – do some excellent river rafting!

Upper Navua river rafting takes you 17 miles through a stunningly beautiful river gorge with multiple waterfalls, plenty of wildlife and lush rainforest canopy over the river’s edge. During high water levels the rafting starts at level IV and drops down to level III as the river slows down approaching the ocean. When there is less water, the river is level III or II all the way, but not any less beautiful!

Luva river rafting is done by inflatable kayaks and the river has mild class II rapids. While the river is calmer than Upper Navua, the handling of the single kayak can be a little more demanding. On your way down the river, enjoy the views of cascading waterfalls, pass villages and swimming children, and take in the incredibly green and scenic rainforest backdrop. You can also try a jungle zip-line ride for that unique thrill!
