The S/Y Fiji Siren launched in September 2013 to offer year-round diving in Fiji in conjunction with the Darling family’s Volivoli Resort on Viti Levu. Every thought for the modern diver has been taken into account during her build phase and she follows a similar layout and design to our S/Y Palau Siren liveaboard.

The 40 metre S/Y Fiji Siren Luxury Liveaboard is the newest member of our liveaboard fleet, first launched in September 2013. She has the same specifications as her sister yachts, the S/Y Indo Siren and the S/Y Palau Siren. The cabins offer comfort and flexibility and can be used as twin or double bedded rooms. The outdoor dining area is very comfortable and provides a fabulous setting for all your meals. The dive deck is perhaps the most spacious and convenient you would have experienced. Designated areas for charging and preparation of your camera and video equipment can be found inside the main lounge – the S/Y Fiji Siren truly sets out to be the pros choice for underwater photography and videography.

Siren Fleet Liveaboard safaris in Fiji are offered in partnership with the Darling Family run Volivoli Beach Resort, situated just 2.5 hours from the Nadi Airport on Viti Levu. We offer you the chance to visit some of Fiji’s most highly rated dive sites in one superb itinerary. With 20 years’ experience of Fiji’s dive sites and reefs we have the knowledge to bring you to the optimum places at the best time of year.
Fiji is known for its stunning soft corals but divers here can also expect to see a variety of sharks and rays, schools of fish and plenty of smaller creatures. Drift dives, often with strong current, over steep walls and pinnacles should be expected. However we also spend time throughout the trip in sheltered lagoons and coral gardens and take the opportunity to hop ashore for a traditional ceremony or visit to the Booma Falls National Park. Experience diving in Fiji with your favourite liveaboard fleet.
Beyond the Bligh, Fiji
Year Round 7 & 10 nights.
Siren Fleet diving liveaboards offer you the option to explore Fiji to its fullest. The dive sites in this region vary from steep walls to sandy slopes with coral gardens where you can easily see manta and eagle rays as well as schools of unicorn fish & tuna. Colourful butterfly fish species graze over the reef and huge potato grouper are also to be found here. Smaller creatures such as blue ribbon eels, hawk fish and leaf fish give macro lovers something to watch out for too. But the real draw for the region is the sheer variety of sharks and rays that will be seen – white tips, black tips, silver tips and grey reef mix in with hammerheads, whilst whale sharks and tiger sharks may be spotted occasionally. This is one elasmobrach soup you’ll be pleased to see!
Fiji Liveaboard Diving Itinerary
Fiji 10-nightsDeparting from the Darling family’s Volivoli Beach Resort on Viti Levu, our 7-night and 10-night liveaboard dive trips on the S/Y Fiji Siren take you through dives at Bligh Waters with stunning coral pinnacles which attract schooling pelagics including barracuda & tuna. We cruise onwards through the Vatu-I-Ra Passage to dive at the Namena Marine Reserve, where hard coral gardens support a myriad of marine species and schools of colourful reef fish. The S/Y Fiji Siren then moves south into the the Lomaiviti Island Group for dives at the islands of Gau and Wakaya. A mix of drift dives, coral gardens and pinnacles is to be expected, keeping on the look out for manta rays and hammerheads but also we see ribbon eels, leaf fish and numerous other smaller creatures. Grey reef sharks can be seen in schools at the mouth of the Nigali Passage. We have the option to return to the Namena Reserve or dive once again in Bligh Waters as the S/Y Fiji Siren cruises back to her home port at Volivoli.
10-night cruises will continue north-east to Taveuni Island and the Somosomo Strait, aka Rainbow Reef, so named for the swathes of colourful soft corals which adorn the reefs. You can also expect to see many different pelagic fish, sharks, mantas and barracudas. Exhilarating drift dives along the reefs are the norm.
