About Ra Divers
Diving the Blight Waters & Vatu-i-ru – Come and meet your new family underwater and dive with us at our world-class diving facility, Ra Divers a fully certified PADI and SSI dive resort and the heart and soul of Volivoli, and where it all began for us over 25 years ago As our head divemaster Pola Paglau, who’s logged over 5000 dives in Fiji says, “What we see underwater is far better than what we see up here, you just have to explore.”
Bligh Water – Also known as The Vatu-I-Ra Passage: Many of our dive staff and guests come to Volivoli because of our proximity to Bligh Water, also known as The Vatu-I-Ra Passage—now a marine protected area famous for its abundance and diversity of marine life—which is arguably the best diving in Fiji. Our modern dive facility is the most advance in the South Pacific, in terms of building, structure, equipment, and our compressor room is world-class, with four compressors in line and Nitrox. All of our dive boats are brand new and purpose-built.
Our staff is fully insured, trained in first-aid, and water-rescue with training sessions happening on the regular. Many of our dive crew have grown up in and around these waters, spearfishing with bamboo rods and swimming in them multiple times a day throughout their lives, so they know the sites like the backs of their hands.
So whether it’s your first time diving, you’re ready to get certified, or want to master a specialty—we have all levels of PADI and SSI certifications here. We love to share the experience with beginners and to help experienced divers become even more advanced. We’re an instructor training facility, so we can teach everything from a person’s first dive through to them becoming an instructor.
For the more experienced diver, our staff has hand-picked more than 50 incredible dive sites. Most of the best sites are no more than 20 minutes by boat from Volivoli Beach.
Ra Divers is one of Fiji’s longest established diving operations, and our staff is renowned for their local knowledge and expertise. A fully-professional SSI Dive Resort that was established in the 1980s, Ra Divers offers a variety of dive packages for beginners to advance. With over 18 years of local experience diving, the Bligh Waters has allowed our crew to handpick superb dive sites for a truly unique experience.
