Yacht dive tour guides open in Fiji

Oct 19, 2015 by Guest Writer

Superyacht Private Expeditions (SPE), specialists in international dive adventures, has launched its Fiji division with offices in Marina Denarau.

Tahiti Private Expeditions (TPE) owners Christelle and Rodolphe Holler developed SPE a few years ago to help superyacht owners and operators explore their region of the Pacific and Southeast Asia.

The Hollers have teamed with David Jamieson, superyacht captain, divemaster and Fiji resident of more than 10 years to manage Fiji operations for SPE.

Capt. Jamieson first arrived in Fiji as captain of the 30m S/Y Aile Blanche in 1999 and has owned and operated his own shore support agency, Asia Pacific Superyachts Fiji (previously Yacht Help Fiji) for the past 13 years.

“Although Fiji benefits from strong tourism, only 110 of the 332 islands are inhabited,” he said. “Most of these islands are of volcanic origin and feature great sheltered anchorages for superyachts. Few yachts go there, so you feel like you are the first ones to explore the area. The ongoing project of turning the Vatu-i-ra area into a marine-protected area means there is even more dive excitement coming up in Fiji.”
