Golden Gates

Located in the crystal-clear waters off the western coast of Fiji, this dive site offers a stunning wall that descends from 5 to 30 meters deep. It is a must-visit for divers of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced.

Dive enthusiasts will be fascinated by the archway adorned with vibrant yellow soft coral, which is best explored during an incoming tide. This natural masterpiece is home to a diverse range of marine life, making it a paradise for macro and wide-angle photographers. Experienced snorkelers will also find this site perfect for exploration.

Prepare to be amazed by the presence of schooling barracuda, GT's/jacks, blacktip and whitetip reef sharks, colorful antheas and fusiliers, and an abundance of exquisite coral formations including sea fans, black coral, and anemones inhabited by vibrant anemone fish and scorpionfish.

Although the Vatu-i-Ra Conservation Park, known as "The Passage," is Fiji's renowned diving destination, do not overlook the equally breathtaking sites within Midway Reef, Vatulaca Reef, Charybdis Reef, and Malake Passage. The boat ride from the shore to "The Passage" typically takes just over an hour. Please note that as Fiji's largest conservation park covering over 110km², some sites may require a longer boat ride. Embrace the wonders of the ocean and treat it with respect.

For more information on the Vatu-i-Ra Conservation Park and to obtain an annual membership to enter the reserve, please visit the official website. Additionally, please be aware that there is a small fee per diver.

Explore the underwater beauty of Fiji's dive sites, where visibility can reach up to 18 meters and the maximum depth is 22 meters. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced diver, these enchanting sites promise an unforgettable experience.
