Mutiny and E-6. They have a small amount of gear available for rental, so it is better if you can take your own.

Mike's Divers is located at Votua Village on the Coral Coast. They offer marine life conservation education, in addition to dive tours and training. Most of their dive sites are close to shore, which means very short boat rides, for those prone to sea sickness! They have lots of new rental gear. They offer training through PADI. They also offer group and local discounts. They will pick you up for free from the local resorts, the nearest of which is The Warwick, which my family think is a fantastic place.

Ra Divers is based at Mokusigas Island Resort on Nananu-I-Ra. Their boat takes up to 12 divers to sites around the island. When we dived with them in July 2001 they were having problems with staffing and with their boat. They promised a trip by phone and then cancelled when we turned up. (They told us that a group of 'Lebanese' had hired the boat and didn't want anyone else on board. We later discovered that they meant a group of lesbian scuba divers had hired the boat and did not want any men on board!) When we did manage one trip with them, a boat engine kept cutting out (a problem they seemed to have had for some time), leading to a 'stop-start' trip. My mood wasn't improved by an unsecured tank rolling over my video and damaging the light housing. YMMV. They describe themselves as a PADI facility.

If you want to dive off Nananu-I-Ra, which is well worth doing - it is a beautiful island, I recommend you dive with Crystal Divers, even though they are one of the more expensive operations in Fiji, and stay at one of the smaller resorts such as MacDonalds, Charlie's Cottages or Betham's Beach Cottages. The more expensive Mokusigas Island Resort is very overpriced for the level of facilities they offer, compared to other resorts in Fiji, although their food is good and their staff very friendly.

South Pacific Adventure Divers (SPAD) is located at The Warwick resort. They offer trial dives in the resort pool at 1.00pm on most days. They have two boats, the larger of which can take up to 12 divers. They offer trips to Beqa Lagoon two or three times a week, although this is a very expensive way of diving there. It is far cheaper to drive to Pacific Harbour and go out with one of the operations based there. The rest of the time they dive sites close to their base, on the outer wall of the fringing reef. I dived with them two years ago and they were very disorganised and provided very poor service. Perhaps they have changed since then. They have an instructor who provides PADI training, if you want to take a chance
