Our Mission

Carl and Muriel Fox and acquired Taveuni Dive in 2002 with the mission to provide the safest, most reliable access to the incredible locations around Taveuni, Fiji. We hire experienced, local divemasters to assure you enjoy the wonders of the Rainbow Reef. We provide well-maintained, up to date equipment, and instruct PADI courses with our talented instructors.

Your safety is paramount . Carl has 40 years of experience in the dive industry and has been a PADI professional for more than 30 years. Feel free to bring you own gear, but if you are traveling light or just starting out, we offer a full range of the latest well-maintained rental equipment. 

We are a Gold Palm 5-star IDC facility, offering a full range of courses — whether you want Discover Scuba or to become a Dive Instructor — we'll teach you; a great way to be trained is through PADI e-learning. Check it out.

We are based at our resort at Soqulu Plantation (Taveuni Estates), half way down Taveuni Island. We can help arrange transportation from the northern resorts. Our location provides unrivalled access to Rainbow Reef.

What do our guests say about us?

The fantastic experience with Taveuni Dive started months before we even landed. They were very helpful over email providing advice and even rescheduled a dive to the White Wall early to suit our holiday. As a diver who has dived in many places with many companies I found Taveuni Dive’s briefings on the blackboard to be amongst the best I have seen. James, Lynn and the other divemasters and boat crew were very friendly, knowledgeable and competent. The dive sites are in the Somosomo Strait and are prone to current and tides. The divemasters know the water and always put us in the water at fantastic and safe dive sites. I found their hire gear was really well looked after and all sets had computers as part of the basic set up - not an optional extra - this was great. The diving sites they go to are brilliant... As an extra at the end of your trip they give you a print out showing all your dives, the dive times and a map showing each site.
