I recently wrote about my experience at Matangi Island Resort in Fiji.  We journeyed to Matangi, armed with suitcases full of photo and dive gear, primarily to see what we could discover under its clear turquoise waters.

Shore diving and snorkeling enthusiasts will be happy to hear that there is an extensive house reef which extends several hundred yards off the main beach.  In addition to the house reef, there are many reefs just a short boat ride from Matangi that are prime spots for both diving and snorkeling.  The dive boat leaves each morning for a 2-tank dive, and the snorkeling boat leaves each afternoon.

Here are my favorite shots from my week at Matangi.
