Discover the perfect location to bring the world of marine biology to life. Abundant in colourful coral reefs, white sand beaches, and untouched natural environments, Fiji offers amazing opportunities for hands-on educational experience and ecotourism adventures.
Trek through the lush island of Fiji and discover the medicinal properties of its abundant flora and fauna from a local Lovoni native. Go on a guided snorkel tour of a coral farm and learn how to identify a wide variety of fish and coral before taking part in a coral replantation project. Then have the opportunity to participate in the tagging and releasing of turtles into the wild with an environmental officer.
Explore the Sigatoka Sand Dunes before heading to the beach for a BBQ lunch, beach volleyball, kayaking, and team building activities. Enjoy a traditional dinner with a Fijian band and fire dance show to highlight your night.
