Fiji’s two skydive companies, Skydive Fiji or Free Fall Fiji are both based in Nadi. Leap from a dizzying 14,000ft over Nadi or the Mananuca Islands for breathtakingly beautiful bird’s-eye views of the island and reef mosaics. The companies also offer video/photo packages which help capture the most brag-worthy freefall moments.
Surfing in Fiji is usually done on offshore reef breaks and Fiji has some of the best in the world like Cloudbreak, Namotu Lefts and Frigates.
The winter months of April – October is the best time for experienced surfers as wind and surf conditions produce bigger waves than usual. The World Surf League’s annual ‘Fiji Pro’ competition is held at ’Cloudbreak’ in the Mamanuca Islands in June each year.
Multi-day island-hopping cruises to some of Fiji’s most stunning islands operate out of Port Denarau in Nadi. Blue Lagoon Cruises and Captain Cook Cruises – the major cruise operators – visit the Mamanuca and Yasawa Island groups weekly on 3, 4 and 7 day itineraries.
Captain Cook Cruises also have less regular ‘Discovery’ cruises to northern and eastern Fiji which is more remote and culturally diverse.
Many other options are available for day-cruises and boat charters as well.

Revered for its phenomenal beauty, the narrow, high-walled canyon weaves its way through fern-filled rainforest and past numerous waterfalls. The canyon is an internationally-recognised RAMSAR site and the rafting company – Rivers Fiji – works closely with government and the local landowners to keep the river pristine
