Fiji's dive experience

Shayal Devi
Saturday, April 20, 2013

OUT of the 672,000 to 673,000 tourists who come to our shores every day, only one per cent visit Fiji for diving.

This is the view of Stuart Gom, the chairman of the Dive Committee. He spoke at the annual Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association Dive Fiji expo, 2013, held at the Plantation Island Resort on the Malolo Islands.

"While this may not seem all that big, the truth is it actually is a big thing when one considers the number of people who fly out thousands of miles just to come here to experience diving," he said.

With its increasing popularity in overseas countries, Mr Gom said potential buyers of dive sites from overseas countries had increased.

This year, 18 overseas buyers had shown interest in marketing Fiji's dive sites around the globe.
