The island's premier dive operation, Dive Kadavu has no less than 5 dive boats and is extremely well equipped and professional. Their super-fast plate aluminum V hull boats can make the trip from Vunisea to King Kong in 21 minutes - they have storage for 30 tanks but generally only take 10 divers - this is luxury diving in the most picturesque setting imaginable! Alan Wiggs .Writer. SportDiving Magazine.


You dont have to be an expert to see why Kadavu is an excellent place for kayak diving. Shallow reef fringes the entire island, quiet (and totally secluded) little coves and beaches appear around every rocky point and 30 dive sites are moored - many within sight and paddling distance of Matana Resort, the haven best known to divers as Dive Kadavu.True blue Australians, Bob and Rena Forster, own and operate Matana somewhat as Fijian home away from home with the help and hospitality of the local staff (sorry, make that extended adopted family). Life in the tropics obviously wasn't hard enough, so Bob, impressed by sea kayaking he'd seen elsewhere, invested in a few diving kayaks and had his dive staff trained. Bob stood grinning knowingly on the beach as i towed the kayak into the water that first day."I'll only have a quick paddle, just to get the hang of it. I'll be back for lunch. OK!""Well, we've packed some food and drink just in case you lose track of time."

I made it back not long after dark - just before dinner and just after a breathtaking sunset. Cruising home under a blood red sky, the kayak carving sharply through the ripped surface, I could imagine how a bird must feel riding air just centimetres above the water. Cathie Holloway. Scuba Diver Magazine.
