Our PADI diving programs cater to all experience levels from first time "chicken" divers to the most advanced certified divers who are looking for thrilling currents with more challenging conditions.

Our Priorities

Safety and protection of the marine environment are our top priorities. Safety requires knowledge, skills, practice, investment in equipment, and constant maintenance and improvement. We take no shortcuts. When you choose Taveuni Ocean Sports, you can be confident that you will dive, snorkel, or surf with the best-equipped and safest dive company on Taveuni. We're proud of a perfect safety record during more than 15 years as dive operators.

We protect the marine environment through our actions and policies and by educating clients and Taveuni children about marine conservation. We participate in the Reefcheck Research Program to collect the data needed to halt the decline of the world's fragile reef environment and actively support PADI's Project Aware foundation.
