Tyrone Valentine Diving, Taveuni

Tania de Hoon has closed her popular dive shop Aquaventure at Matei near the northern tip of Taveuni Island in Fiji. Aquaventure's neighbor, Swiss Fiji Divers, is still in business and recommended.

The new kid on the block is Tyrone Valentine Diving based at the Tovu Tovu Resort, a kilometer east of the airport terminal at Matei. Tyrone Valentine is one of Fiji's most experienced divers, and his is the first Taveuni dive shop owned and operated by a Fijian.

Tyrone was a divemaster with Ric Cammick's Dive Taveuni for 16 years, and he also spent a year as the lead diver on the liveaboard Mataqi Princess. Since Ric's operation doesn't cater to anyone other than Taveuni Island Resort guests, Tyrone Valentine Diving offers you the chance to dive with a seasoned pro who knows these waters well.

UPDATE: Swiss Fiji Divers is no longer operating.
