Scuba diving in Nigali Passage
Nigali Passage is a narrow channel dive site in the Barrier Reef in Fiji. The channel is shaped in such a way that incoming currents do not coincide with the rising tide. This site doesn’t have much in the way of corals or anemones--its focus is the large number of reef sharks. When diving at Nigali Passage, divers may see up to 25 female sharks at once. This site is a perfect opportunity to take photos of exciting marine life, including other marine species that can be spotted between rocks and around the slopes.
