The islands of the Pacific, picture postcard stunning, remote, idyllic beaches and lagoons of gin-clear water, perfect, peaceful. While under the water, is a staggering abundance of marine life, darting around and going about its day. Exhilarating currents wash reefs with nutrients carried up from the depths of the planet’s largest body of water, creating the perfect habitat for reef dwellers, and the pelagics that predate on them, or simply come to get their parasites chewed off. Beneath the quiet charm of turquoise bays lie the final resting places of shipwrecks, and the stories that sank with them.
The Pacific region plays host to a scuba divers must see, must dive check list under its gentle swells, and should be a top contender for your next dive holiday destination.
The Pacific Ocean is the largest in the world, and as such, it offers incredible opportunities for scuba diving and encountering a vast array of marine life. From colourful tropical fish on pristine reefs to majestic sharks, whales, dolphins, and sea turtles, there is a massive diversity of marine species to discover during your dive holiday in the region.
Some of the world’s most unique and exciting dive sites are in the Pacific and waiting for your next scuba vacation. Explore World War II shipwrecks or dive with sharks in Palau. Scuba with hordes of sharks in Beqa Lagoon Fiji, or enjoy the renowned beauty of the soft corals at Rainbow Reef. Scuba Garuae Pass in Fakarava, French Polynesia, with schools of sharks and thousands of fish, or swim with Humpback Whales in Tahiti. The Pacific region provides many ‘off the beaten track’, uncrowded, incredibly unique dive locations to explore.
The region is also known for its rich cultural heritage, and the locations of some of the richest diving on the planet, can offer a unique perspective on local traditions and customs. In Fiji, for example, you can participate in a traditional Kava ceremony with local villagers after diving over some of the world’s most beautiful coral reefs. These unique cultural experiences add an extra flavour to an already fantastic scuba diving experience.
Some areas in the Pacific can be more complicated than others to accommodate for plant-based diver diets, especially the more remote liveaboard destinations. Many other dive holiday locations in the Pacific region provide excellent options for those on an adapted diet. If you are unsure, then let us help you out.
