The best place to snorkel around Savusavu is at Split Rock close to Cousteau Resort. You can get a public bus or taxi from town. Snorkel out towards the pearl buoys for the best coral patches. Long-established dive operator Koro Sun Divers (885 2452, korosundive.com; two-tank dive F$230) offer daily pick-ups from the Savusavu area and dive the reefs in the Koro Sea off the south coast as well as the Rainbow Reef. Once a week they run trips to the remote reefs of Namena Island.

In the busy sailing season between May and October one of the visiting yachts may offer day or overnight sailing charters – check at the Copra Shed or Waitui marinas. Tui Tai Adventure Cruise have their head offices in Savusavu, between the Planters Club and the J Hunter Pearl Office on Main Street.
