Scuba Diving at Tokoriki

Hawksbill TurtleTokoriki Island’s secluded position at the northern end of the Mamanuca Island Group offers the certified diver a diverse array of great dive sites, most of which are a short—10 minute—boat ride from the Resort beach. We always dive in small groups (minimum one diver, maximum generally eight) and our dive leader to diver ratio is usually no more than 1:4.

Tokoriki Diving has spoiled us—small groups, great dive team and best of all no other dive boats!

Our varied dive sites can offer swarms of multi coloured reef fish, pinnacles forested in sea fans, submarine canyons and crevasses, walls, swim–throughs and caves, plus shark, wreck and night dives—all in warm tropical waters and clear blue seas.

Emperor AngelfishPhotographers are welcome at Tokoriki. The macro specialist is spoilt for choice on most of our sites (our dive leaders excel at finding the smallest of critters), while the great visibility and sunshine offer plenty of wide–angle opportunities. The keen photographer should also not miss our fantastic night diving.

Apart from in exceptional circumstances we do not mix beginners with experienced divers. If we have a group of certified divers with mixed abilities we tend to double up on Dive Leaders or at least allow the more experienced divers more freedom in depths and bottom times.

Maximum Dive Depth rules

In the interest of safety Tokoriki Diving follows PADI advice when it comes to maximum depths.

  • PADI Discover Scuba Diver or certified Scuba Diver: maximum depth 12m/ 40ft.
  • Open Water Diver: maximum depth 18m/ 60ft.
  • Advanced Open Water Diver or higher: maximum depth 30m/100 ft.

It is important to note that should you go deeper than your training level recommended maximum depth, you would not be covered by any dive medical insurance cover that you hold, unless you were undergoing dive training with a PADI Dive Instructor. Tokoriki Diving offers a full range of PADI courses in which to choose from, should you find your current maximum depth level too limiting.

Medical Insurance

Scuba Diving is as safe as ten pin bowling statistically! When done properly it is an incredibly safe pastime that millions of people enjoy.

In the interest of safety Tokoriki Diving recommends that you take out fully comprehensive travel insurance which includes scuba diving (as well as any other activities you may wish to do) in it’s policy. It is also important to make sure that your insurance cover includes medical evacuation from Fiji.

Nowadays scuba diving is included in many general Travel Insurance policies, but it is always wise to check the small print.

Flying After Diving Guidelines

Tokoriki Diving follows RSTC and PADI guidelines for flying after diving rules. These being:

  • For a single dive within the no decompression limit, a minimum pre–flight surface interval of 12 hours is suggested.
  • For repetitive dives and/or multi–day dives, a minimum pre–flight surface interval of 18 hours is suggested.
  • Wherever possible we would recommend 24 hours.

We accept scuba divers from all accredited agencies. Certified divers must offer proof of certification either by way of a c–card, letter of verification or log book. We are able to look up PADI divers’ details on PADI Dive Chek©.
