Gau Island / Fiji

Soft coral
A small Gau Island offers possibility to dive at amazing dive sites with a great number of marine dwellers. Moreover, strong currents bring here lots of plankton that attract schools of pelagic fish.
Jim’s Alley features three coral reefs that at approximately 5m/16ft depth create a plateau that runs down to 22m/72ft depth and ends with rocky walls.
Ningali Pass is a narrow crack in the coral reef. Dives at this place usually take place 1.5 hours before and after the tide. At any other time the visibility is rather low due to high concentration of the plankton and strong currents.
