Fiji is paradise in the Pacific, complete with volcanic mountains, coral reefs, waterfalls, hiking trails, and single lane dirt roads that transport us back to a simpler time.
Join us for an amazing opportunity to live alongside the Fijian people in a traditional beachside village setting. When we arrive, a “sevu sevu” welcome ceremony inducts our group into the tribe for the duration of our stay. We eat meals in a communal setting where our village family spoils us with inspired banquets full of fruits, breads, and native dishes. The villages we work with have mapped out the priorities for health, education, marine ecology and community facilities. We work alongside our hosts – lending our time, labor, and financial support. Our days include the learning to SCUBA dive above fiji’s colorful reefs, volunteer projects, adventure activities, and introductions to traditional, local customs, crafts, and games!
We spend several days scuba diving the world-class dive locations of Northwestern Fiji. From our incredible beach accommodations, we spend our day scuba diving in the “Soft Coral Capital” of the world. Beginner divers gain their Open Water Dive Certification. With its bathtub-warm tropical water, perfect underwater visibility, and amazing marine life, Fiji is the perfect environment for diving and learning about marine biology.

You will have a change to swim with Manta Rays, catch fish for dinner a beside a beachside bonfire and camp in safari style tents on the beach under the stars of the southern cross.
