As Fiji's premier diving destination, 'The Passage' showcases unparalleled natural beauty. However, do not overlook the equally stunning sites within Midway Reef, Vatulaca Reef, Charybdis Reef, and Malake Passage, all conveniently located nearby. The boat ride to 'The Passage' typically takes just over one hour from various locations in Western Fiji. Please note that due to the expansive size of Fiji's largest conservation park, spanning over 110km², some sites may require additional travel time. Remember to revel in the ocean's beauty and treat its delicate ecosystem with utmost respect.
