Scuba Diving the Yasawas, Fiji

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: The Erebus

Location: Vunavesi Bay, Naukacuvu (in the Naviti group, the Yasawas), Fiji

Description: Wall dive with swim-through

Depth: 24 metres + (79 feet)

Visibility: 25 metres (80 feet)

Rating: ***

This is an interesting and extremely fun dive. Although the islands of Naukacuvu and Narara are surrounded by one network of fringing reef, there is a strong current that cuts a channel between the two. On the western side of the island this channel opens up onto a wall that drops off to around 30m and is lined with large gorgonian fan corals. Visibility on the wall itself averages 25m but where the channel opens out onto the reef it brings through a constant stream of dirtier, colder water. Meaning "Gateway to Hell", the Erebus describes the feeling divers get when either entering or exiting the vast cavern-like swim-through that either starts or ends this dive (depending on the tide). The stark contrast in visibility and ambient lighting, the change in water temperature and indeed the quite differing marine life carpeting the walls on either side really gets pulses racing. Good dive!
