Lonely Planet Diving and Snorkeling Fiji
Lonely Planet Diving and Snorkeling Fiji
(Diving & Snorkeling)
This book contains helpful photos and descriptions, but virtually no critical reviews of dive facilities on the water.
Countless reefs, walls and pinnacles painted in a patchwork of soft corals earned Fiji its reputation as the soft-coral capital
of the world. The 332-island archipelago offers remote, pristine sites, thrilling drift dives and more than 1,000 tropical fish
species. Feed hungry reef sharks at the Supermarket, pay a dental visit to cleaner shrimp or seek sanctuary in the
sun-dappled Alacrity Rocks. From the snowy slopes of Great White Wall to the teeming depths of the E6 seamount, this book
highlights 74 of Fiji's best sites, with full-color photos throughout.
This is an attractive book which the scuba diver will want to order. It maps and describes 74 of Fiji's top dive sites and
the color photography is excellent. Despite the title, however, those interested in beach-based snorkeling will find
little of use here as almost all of the sites included are accessible by boat only. Even the new Waitabu Marine Park off
Taveuni is mentioned only in passing. There's virtually no practical resort or restaurant information, and the first
quarter of the book is devoted to brochure-style hype you can read on almost any Fiji website. Critical reviews of dive
facilities are strikingly absent, so this book is of no help in selecting a specific scuba operator. Five pages of listings
in the back of the book provide basic contact information, but even this is out of date as all Fiji telephone numbers have
increased from six to seven digits since the book was published.
Nevertheless, when one considers the cost of a scuba tour to the South Pacific and the lack of any alternative Fiji dive
guide, all of the above criticisms are mute and serious divers will click this title straight into their shopping carts.

Would you rather trust a guidebook written by a twenty-something whose three month assignment was to travel
around a certain area and write or would you rather trust a guy who spent twenty-something years living and traveling
around these areas? That's the bio of David Stanley, the author of this book and this guy knows the in's and out's of
Fiji. That's obvious when you pick up this book.
Fiji Handbook starts out with the most comprehensive background of Fiji I've found in competitive books,
everything ranging from its history (including cannabalism!) right down to the shark population around the island. I
always like to prime up on the place I'm traveling and this section is great for it.
The next section, a Fiji "overview" is very informative. It covers the basics such as getting to/from the island,
communicating off the island, and accomodations around Fiji (like camping vs. hotels). This is pretty standard in any guidebook.
The meat of the book comes afterwards, which is broken down by island chains. It covers everything you would expect,
including accomodations, hotels, beaches and attractions. Maps are outstanding -- not only do they have island maps,
but major city maps too with post offices, restaurants and sights discussed in the text are labelled on the map.
This was the first book by Moon Handbooks I have read and I will surely consider more. My recommendation is to give this title serious consideration
Diving and Snorkeling Guide to Fiji
(Lonely Planet Pisces Books)
Looking for a far flung diving adventure? An exotic, tropical paradise with no crowds and some of the richest marine life on
earth? That's exactly what's described in this Pisces Guide for today's intrepid divers. With lyrical names like Viti Levu,
Vanua Levu, Taveuni, Kadavu, and Mamanucca, the extraordinary islands of Fiji beckon all who share the spirit of discovery.
As a master diver who has dived over 50 years and has visited many of Fiji's dive sites, I would advise any potential diving
visitor to save their money here and buy the newer and much more complete Lonely Planet "Diving and Snorkeling Fiji" by
renowned dive guides Casey Mahaney and Astrid Witte (also available on Amazon). Just be aware- Fiji has so many and
varied dive sites visited by day operations and liveaboards NO book can really do justice comprehensively. Nope, no
connections with LP or Mahaney, I just want to save other divers the trouble... and if you love diving, you will LOVE Fiji diving!
