Fiji offers thousands of unique dive sites, all teeming with marine life..
Experience some of the best diving around in our incredibly turquoise waters. Onboard the Reef Endeavour you’ll travel to remote sites, known for their diverse marine life and amazing colours in warm tropical water.
Sea temperatures are warm in Fiji, making diving comfortable even in the middle of winter (average of 25C May to Nov) and visibility is reliable and excellent, with depths of up to 40m not unusual.
By combining your dive holiday with a relaxing Captain Cook cruise you’ll be able to make the most of up to 3 different dive sites every day, and still enjoy all our onboard comforts.
All our diving is operated by Viti Water Sports, a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre, and we can cater for certified, occasional and first time divers.
Depending on your level of experience, you could find yourself swimming through caves, coral bommies, and breathtaking coral gardens. First time divers will orientate themselves with the sport in our onboard freshwater swimming pool before exploring the spectacular fringing coral reefs around our many islands.
We offer two dives per day wherever possible, and can offer night dives as well on occasion. Average dive duration is 40 minutes, and we make sure you get to experience a great range of dive sites during your cruise.Book My Dive Cruise
In conjunction with Viti Water Sports, we’re able to offer you diving on some of our best small ship cruises, as well as on full day cruise to Tivua Island.
We’ve incorporated diving into our 3, 4, and 7 Night Mamanuca and Yasawa Island Cruises, our 7 Night Colonial and 4 Cultures Discovery Cruises and, for the ultimate experience, our cruise to the remote Lau group and Kadavu. You can choose how many times you’d like to dive during each cruise.
Being a PADI Five Star resort means you can complete a Dive course with us and obtain your Open Water, Advanced Diver or Rescue Diver PADI qualification. The learning can be completed online prior to your cruise or aboard with our great dive team www.padi.com/elearning-scuba-registration There is a minimum cruise duration to complete each course so be sure to contact us prior to making that decision.
It’s no secret that Fiji is world-famous for Shark Diving. Rare are places in the world where you can jump in the water and meet wild, 3 metre sharks. The Barefoot Collection have created a shark dive that you shouldn’t miss!
The star of the Awakening Shark Dive is rarely found in any dive location worldwide…. its the elusive Bull Shark!
Other shark species sighted in the Awakening Dive site include Tawny Nurse Sharks, Tiger Sharks, Lemon Sharks, Reef Sharks and Silver-tip Sharks.
Let our shark experts give you an intimate insight into the lives of the sharks in their natural habitat, all year round!
Combine the 45min Shark Dive with our 3 or 7 Night Yasawa Island Cruise today!
All of our Small Ship cruises offer an amazing diving experience for any level of diver. Most of our dives are accessed by small boat and, although no specific site can be guaranteed, the abundance of natural underwater wonders ensures that we can almost always pick a perfect spot to explore.

If you can’t join one of our Small Ship Cruises but don’t want to miss out on the amazing diving that Fiji offers, then take our Day Trip Dive Safari to Tivua Island. Tivua Island is a coral atoll surrounded by 500 acres of coral reef so offers a variety of dive experiences including the new MV Raiyawa wreck dive.
Raiyawa was built in 1982 in Fiji and was a government vessel deployed in placing and maintaining Navigational marks around Fiji and also used to carry passengers inter-island. In 2014 Raiyawa was decommissioned and extensive work was done on “Raiyawa” to ensure she was safe for diving. Work included opening large swim throughs in her hull and superstructure, as well as removing any hazards to divers such as sharp edges and obstructions. She was extensively cleaned and prepared in line with the environmental guidelines.
The wreck will become a key dive site for avid divers and is situated just off Tivua Island. Passengers on Captain Cook Cruises Island Day cruise, and M.V. Reef Endeavour Small Ship cruise itineraries will have the option of diving at the “Raiyawa” wreck.
Our PADI Five Star Diving is exclusive to Captain Cook Fiji customers on either our Small Ship Cruises, or Tivua Island Day Cruise. View our Small Ship Cruises or Day Cruise to select your ideal Fiji cruise experience.
All certified divers must present an internationally recognized Open Water Dive Certificate to the on-board dive instructor to participate in certified dives. If they haven’t dived for 6 months or more, they will be requirzed to complete a Scuba Review. Introductory (or beginner) divers are not required to have a certification card however they will need to complete a medical and waiver form. If you are cruising for 4 nights or longer, you may like to take this excellent opportunity to complete your PADI Open Water Course, with an Instructor all to yourself. To save you having to study on your cruise, you are strongly recommended to complete the academic part of the course online prior to boarding, at www.padi.com/elearning-scuba-registration, using Captain Cook Cruises Fiji as your training facility. Please note that there are certain medical conditions that may prevent you from diving so please consult your doctor prior to your diving experience if you are concerned.
Full dive equipment is provided as part of your package. This includes BCD, regulator, wetsuit, masks, snorkels, fins, tanks and weight belts. We will offer a FJ$25/AU$15 per dive discount should you wish to bring your own equipment. The ship carries a compressor.
