From Matei it takes roughly forty minutes by boat to reach the superb dive sites along the Rainbow Reef off the south coast of Vanua Levu. The rich current-fed waters off Matei are also fantastic for big game fishing, with marlin, swordfish and yellowfin tuna plentiful. As well as the operators listed here, Makaira Resort can also organize game-fishing trips (US$360 per half-day) in a 24ft aluminium boat.
