For intrepid first-timers
Why not become a certified diver?
If you have ever wanted to try diving, now is the time! Our experienced instructors will hold your hand and guide you through some of Fiji's healthiest coral reef. Diving is for everyone - it's quick, simple and can even be enjoyed by those who cannot swim or wear contact lenses.
Both Barefoot islands are surrounded by beaches and you'll be spoilt for choice. We walk straight off the shore into shallow water and will show you a diverse range of marine life unique to Fiji - you'll leave with a new perspective of the underwater world!
Diving with Barefoot is a low impact, memorable and educational experience and no diving qualifications are required.
Begin a life-long relationship with the ocean. An Open Water Diver qualification opens up the possibility of diving in amazing places all around the world. The course is taught over three days, and will qualify you to dive to depths up to 18m. The qualification is life-long and internationally recognised.

Get deeper into diving
Already certified? Take the next step - become an advanced diver. Our advanced-level course will expose you to a variety of diving to increase your confidence and skill level.
You will be taught techniques for underwater navigation, night diving and deep diving, as well as choosing optional specialties such as drift diving, digital photography, boat diving and more.
Your advanced diver certification is recognised worldwide and will qualify you to dive to depths of up to 30 metres - making many more dive sites available to you. This can be particularly beneficial if you plan on diving wreck sites - such as ships and aircraft - which often lie in deeper water.
