Anticipate a Kava Ceremony and Viillage visit. Welcome to Fiji with a kava ceremony. From less formal kava ceremonies at some resorts for guests, etiquette demands bringing a gifted kava to the village as respect for the community. Travelling with a tour, this is prearranged by presentation of kava to the chief and mataqali (village elders)!
Kava Etiquette: SAY "Bula" then clap your hands once before accepting your drink. After drinking the bowl (bilo) of Kava (one gulp only-no sipping allowed) hand the bowl back to the person who presented it to you and clap with cupped hand three times again. (clapping sound should be hollow, not sharp.) Terms of Endearment: "low tide" - a small bowl of Kava; "high tide" - filled bowl of Kava. It is acceptable to decline Kava -put your hand up and shake your head when it is presented to you. It is no insult to your host/no explanation needed.

Fiji means ‘The Soft Coral Capital of the World’ to ‘The Best Shark Diving Location in the World.’ It’s easy to call Fiji a world class dive destination that caters to all ages and qualifications. But diving in Fiji has more to offer including wall dives, swim-throughs, caverns, canyons and incredible blue water encounters. You'll find some of the most colorful reef ecosystems on earth! In turn, the outer reefs boast some of the best pelagic and shark dives in the world!
