South Pacific

The world's largest archipelago with countless islands, some even unnamed . . . .
Overview:

Scuba diving in the South Pacific enjoys the reputation as being the very best in the world. Exotic marine life, including turtles, sharks, rays and whales, and a stunning seascape with corals, walls, drops offs and wrecks galore make the South Pacific a diver's paradise.

Top destinations are Papua New Guinea with its pristine dive sites, wrecks and marine life.  Fiji is famous for its coral reefs and tiger sharks.  Tahiti's beautiful turquoise waters and oceanic drop offs attract large pelagics, especially sharks and rays and vase schools of tropical reef fish.

Dive with Humpbacks at Tonga and remember the world famous Chuuk (Truk) Lagoon, home to the entire Japanese 6th fleet, sunk in 1944.

What to see:
Wrecks : Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Chuuk (Truk) and Guam
Sharks : Tahiti
Manta Rays: Yap
Jellyfish Lake: Palau
Humpback Whales: Tonga
The Soft Coral capital of the world: Fiji

Fiji Island Dancer II Aggressor/Dancer Fleet 11-19 Apr 2015  Island Dancer II, Fiji 4 Star Rating Added: 25th April 2015 by Pasley
Things I liked about the Island Dancer II. The 101 foot long boat allows 10 passengers in 5 cabins with in suite bathroom/shower. The bathroom is roomy as is the bedroom. This makes for a nice intimate group and does not overload a dive site with divers. If you leave...
Worst Dive Master in the world  Bora Diving Center - Nemo World, French Polynesia 1 Star Rating Added: 28th January 2015 by evieeve
I'm an experienced diver and bought an inter- island dive packet from Bora Diving. I was traveling aboard the cruise ship Holland America as the lecturer on Marine Biology.

TuiTai Adventure to heaven  Tui Tai, Fiji 5 Star Rating Added: 9th July 2014 by lomaland
Pros: Awesome adventure trip in paradise to amazing dive and snorkel sites. We snorkeled (via inflatable with two crew members) twice a day. Great trip for woman travelling alone. Rooms/leisure areas are very clean, comfortable and attractive. Boat passenger loads are typically light (like 4 people) unless a larger group...
Disappointed  Pacific Divers, Cook Islands 1 Star Rating Added: 17th May 2014 by dive_champ
I was really disappointed with my experience with Pacific Divers. First off, let me preface this with some background on myself. I'm a very experienced diver that has previously worked in the dive industry. My needs from a dive shop are minimal, get me a tank, take me to a...

Rat Infested Dangerous Dive Boat  Tui Tai, Fiji 1 Star Rating Added: 17th December 2013 by ksiddel
There are a lot of facts you should be aware of before signing up as a passenger on this boat some of them good some of them not so good. My wife and I spent a week aboard the Tui Tai in early October 2013. We booked the midrange stateroom...
Complete Dive Service and Experience  Neco Marine Dive Center - Palau Pacific Resort, Palau 5 Star Rating Added: 19th May 2013 by scubacolbill
Just completed our 10th dive trip to Palau and 4th use of Neco Marine. Without a doubt the premier dive operation in Palau, Neco combines a top flight fleet of boats, drivers and dive masters with a thorough knowledge of available dive sites. They go out of their way to...
