Just some of the comments from our divers talking about one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world. More recent comments can be found @ Tripadvisor....

"Thanx heaps for your service these last 4 days. I really really enjoyed the dives and was impressed by your professionalism. Great guides, ease of gear setup, good banter, good service on the boat, your approach to students was also great to see. I'll be passing on great recommendations for you guys. Hope to see you again in the future." - Kane, (Australia), September 2014

"I am an instructor who has worked and dived around the world since 1997. I've visited and managed dive resorts and KoroSun Dive is up there with the best of them. They are incredibly helpful, sharp, well prepared and willing to do whatever it takes to get you diving. The equipment is new, modern and safe, as is the dive vessel. A particularly good thing is that they have the ability to return to the base between dives, so no waiting out sitting on the boat if the weather isn't ideal! And if you are wondering about the diving, they have access to the best diving in the South Pacific. Period. What are you waiting for?? Cheers again Janine & Colin, will be seeing you again soon!" - Jef, (New Zealand), September 2013

"KoroSun Dive are a great crew and have awesome spots." - Definitely Nick James, (Australia), July 2013

"Hello KoroSun Dive..!! Didn't I tell you I would be back?? I would love to come back and do my divemaster course...I really want to do my divemaster and cannot think of anywhere else I would rather do it....oh my goodness I just cannot wait. I've pulled out all my old Fiji books and memories from last time (2008) there are some very funny  notes and pictures. I will have to bring them and show you :)... I'm back, having my first breakfast in Fiji and couldn't be happier! (A week later) - I could get used to diving here every day!" - Lizzy, (Great Britain), June 2013

"Hi Colin, j-9 and gang, Firstly I send a big congrats to the married couple...we saw that coming a mile off! I attended a 6 week course with you back in 2008 where you got me up to PADI rescue. It was the best experience of my life and helped me grow as a person as well as a diver. I want to thank you all for the precious memories I have of Fiji and also for transferring your passion for diving into me.I have since travelled around and got my Divemaster when I was in Tobago in 2009. I just can't get enough!!Thought you would like to know that after spending 4 years in hundreds of different dive companies, yours still wins hands down! You've got spirit!Lastly, I am thinking of revisiting Fiji in 2014 and would quite like to stay close to korosundive so is there anywhere you recommend that isn't too touristy?Look forward to hearing from you, Sarah xxx Ps, put a wedding photo up on the site!" - Sarah, (Great Britain), April 2013

"Thank you Colin, Steven and J9. I really liked scuba diving with you Colin. Thanks for filling my tanks Steven and for filling out my certification so I can dive J9." - Chloe, (USA), 10 years old, May 2012

"I have been meaning to let you know how much I enjoyed diving with KoroSun Dive last December while staying at Koro Sun resort specifically for the diving. I have dived in many locations worldwide, and I was very impressed with the excellent and professional services offered by the staff at KoroSun Dive. The divemasters were extremely knowledgeable about the dive sites and pointed out interesting critters and the dive boat crew took outstanding care of my dive gear every day. Colin and Janine are outstanding - they are so friendly organized and professional and most importantly they are down to earth and take the time to get to know the divers personally. l want to compliment you on having a terrific dive service. It was a true pleasure diving with KoroSun Dive" - WaterGirl, June 2012

"Dear Dive Crew, Thank you so much for the unforgettable memories, we will cherish them forever. You guys are truly the light of the world. :O) Love and Blessings." - Eddy Family, (USA), June 2012

"Colin Skipper, AKA "Skipper Skipper" ( no Gilligan's Island jokes please) provided a fantastic dive experience in one of the world's greatest dive destinations. Try and get out to the Namena Marine Preserve; we had a terrific experience - check out the photos made on our dives at raptureofthedeep.net at Namena and Dream House. Everything you could want, fabulous corals, fish, warm clear water and SHARKS! Colin not only provided world class dives, but did open water courses making newbies comfortable in challenging circumstances at very reasonable prices. With the option of several operators, Korosun (Colin and Janine, aka Ginger) offer not only the best places, the best value with quality equipment included, and get my highest recommendation for a dive trip and South Pacific get away." - AvalancheBrewer, (USA), tripadvisor, April 2012

"My husband and I dove initially for 2 days (4 dives) with Colin and J-9 at Koro Sun Dive, doing our Advanced Open Water Certification. To say it was an awesome experience would be an vast understatement....As newer divers, we were made to feel completely safe and in excellent hands. "Full service" just doesn't cut it....We saw Hammerheads, Sea Turtles, Magic Coral, and too many varieties of unique sea life to list...We cannot recommend them highly enough!" - Shanna & Jason, (USA), September 2011

"We completed our Advanced Open Water Dive course with Colin and Janine....We had a fantastic time and were really looked after. Colin is very experienced and truly passionate about the underwater world and happy to share his knowledge.... Janine is fun and a breath of fresh air. Koro Sun seem to have access to the best dive spots on the Island....Thanks guys - our diving was the absolute highlight of our holiday." - Cory & Stephen, (USA) August 2011

"Our first time diving, felt very safe with Colin overseeing our Discover Scuba Dive. Saw sharks &  sailfish about 1 metre away. Thanx for an amazing experience!! Great dives, great Captain, great service. Thanks!" - Daniel  and Abby, July 2010

"Excellent place to learn diving. V friendly staff. We got Hammered!!!" - Ash and David, (England), February 2010

"Memorable diving and the crew a pleasure to be with. I'll be back!" - Colleen Fagan (Australia), January 2010

"Diving with KoroSun Dive was fabulous! Colin and crew perfectly mix professionalism in diving with Fijian hospitality. Put that together with some of the most beautiful dive spots in all of Fiji, and that's a recipe that keeps me coming back for more." - Jim Lowe (Australia), January 2010

"Ian and Tica had a wonderful time on their first dive. I'm so glad they did it with you, Colin, and thank you for your effort with them as well as your advice." - Brooke Drury (USA), December 2009


"We really enjoyed diving with you last year and hope to do some diving with you and your crew this time...You have a class act going on there." - John & Debi Gookin (USA), November 2009

"Training for my Advanced Open Water Diver certificate with KoroSun Dive was one of the highlights of my travels. All the guys were so fun, friendly and laid back. Colin even managed to make the theory fun! KoroSun Dive are a great dive shop with some of the most beautiful dive locations in the world right on its doorstep!"     -
Ashley McFarlane (Scotland), November 2009

"I must tell you that the dive I did with Sonny the morning when my camera flooded was if not the best dive I had experienced it was pretty close to the best - camera flooded or not. I reckon we saw every fish in Allen and Steene's book "Indo Pacific Coral Reef Field Guide", and Sonny got his teeth cleaned by one of the cleaner shrimps as a bonus." - Evan Holt (Australia), August 2009

"I came all the way from Holland to get my PADI open water in Fiji. Colin is a very nice instructor and he and the boys showed us the beauty of the Fijian ocean. We dived lots of sites close to Savusavu and we also went to Namena. You can do the best safety-stop in the world over there, so beautiful! I liked it so much I came back a second time, which was even better, because we went swimming with a couple of humpbackwhales. I will never forget the excitement of that my whole life! Thanks Colin & crew!" - Mariska (Holland), April & September 2009

"What an incredible and unforgettable experience to start our diving holidays in amazing Savusavu... After a talk on the phone with Colin from KoroSun Dive it was absolutley clear to us who we wanna dive with. After hearing and feeling Colin's pure enthusiasm over the phone me and my friends teamed up with Colin & Janine from KoroSun Dive, and we have been rewarded with this choice big time... First check out dive at Dream House...at the drop off from the pinnacle a 2 metre grey reef shark is patrolling the wall...yes :O) Diving away from the pinnacle into the blue a big school of about 200 Chevron Barracudas is passing by, what a sight, and about 5 minutes later, emerging from the deep, a school of about 20 Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks comes to visit us - our first ones - we were blown away by feelings and impressions... welcome to AMAZING Fiji!" -  Mario, Isabel & Alex (Austria), September 2009

"Everything was perfect. You live in a  paradise!" - Paulo & Jeni (Brazil), November 2008

"5 days of glorious diving. Fantastic staff. Beautiful. Vinaka." - Alison Smith  & Zen Kurokawa (USA), September 2008

"KoroDun Dive was superb. Colin and the other dive masters couldn;t have been more professional and helpful. Colin definitely has one of the premier dive operations in Fiji." - MaluhiaHawaii (Trip Advisor), June 2008

"The diving at Koro Sun is fantastic. We did 11 dives over 5 days and loved it. Colin and his crew are very accomodating and nothing was too muh trouble...they were committed to safety and we had no problems at all. Each day was a different dive site and we made it across to Namena on our last day. Namena is outstanding and has the best soft coral I have ever seen." - zorro6942 (Trip Advisor), September 2007


"The diving was absolutely fantastic.  Situated between the Somosomo Straits and Namena Marine Reserve, Koro Sun is the only dive operation able to dive both of those areas, as well as dynamite local sites that are just a few minutes from the resort, so we had great variety. Every dive site had its own beauty, and opportunities for fantastic photos were almost unlimited. After diving was done each day, the crew totally took care of our equipment and they cheerfully did so, hanging wetsuits, BC’s and other gear to dry, all kept in a locked, air-ventilated drying room adjacent to the dive shop. They constantly went out of their way to be friendly, accomodating, and helpful on and off the boat. I am returning to Fiji and Koro Sun this July, and can hardly wait to jump back into that beautiful water!" - Judy Mikesell (USA), June 2006

"Collin, the shop's owner, does what he says and says what he does. He arranged on time pick-ups from and returns to the Hot Spring Hotel in Savu Savu for us. He goes out of his way to make sure you have the best diving experience, weather permitting. If we ever go back there, we will dive with Koro Sun without a blink. The dive boat also has a head...Our favorite site was Dungeons & Dragons with lots of swim-thrus, it was developed by Collin. They allowed us to leave our gear with them even though we were staying somewhere else." - TomandHuck (USA), August 2006

"We dove with Koro Sun Dive for 5 day, which provided excellent service and a ‘can do’ attitude. Our favorite dive was called Dream House. The Dive Master and owner of the dive facilities name is Collin and in the 120 dives that I have done, he has been my favorite Dive Master. He and his staff takes great care of your and provides for a safe experience while providing challenging dives at your request. He is willing to listen to what you need from your diving and will provide insights on how to improve your diving abilities if asked. He really cares!!" -  Brian and Kristi (USA), November 2006

"Our family enjoyed...6 glorious days at Koro Sun. The dives were each unique, ranging from underwater aquariums to sharks to caves to breath-taking coralscapes. We were so impressed by the way this dive shop was managed, and can't wait until we can return to Koro Sun to dive with Colin and his crew. Hats off to this operation, from the Herrs." - The Herr Family (USA), August 2005

"Colin Skipper runs a professional dive operation and I was satisfied that I was in good hands. The boat crew really took care of me and my gear... and I'm very fussy about my gear so I'm hard to please.
Colin and the crew will tailor the diving to the diver's desires and experience - I got what I asked for in terms of depths and features. I'm an 'old school' underwater photographer and there was no problems with me asking for certain types of diving to suit the setup I had chosen for my old Nikonos V the night before."
- Diver_Down_Under (Trip Advisor), Aug 2005

"The real highlight, of course is the world class diving that Fiji has to offer. From amazing soft corals to white tip sharks and everything in-between, the diving here blew our minds. THE LOCAL SITES LIKE PURPLE GARDENS AND DREAM HOUSE ARE GREAT BUT 'koro sun dive" also does day trips to the Somosomo striates and Namena marine reserve.( easily the best diving in the entire south pacific.)"     - Jenny & Dick Thurston (Trip Advisor), September 2004
