"Fish Feeding (Crusoes Retreat)" Fiji Things to Do Tip by dancinbudgie

Fiji Things to Do: 162 reviews and 305 photos

I had heard really awful reviews about the quality of snorkelling on the Coral Coast and so was not expecting much. At Crusoes Retreat I got a wonderful surprise! The snorkelling at this resort is great! And right off the beach too!. This is due to the joint fish feeding/ coral farming program Crusoes runs with the neighbouring Namaqumaqua Village. Every day the villagers feed the fish from their end of the beach at the same time the resort staff and guests feed them from their end of the beach. There is no fishing alowed in the vicinity. These 2 small things, along with the coral farming activities, are bringing the marine life back in startling numbers. The photo's below show some of the fish we saw only a few metres from the beach. In fact, the sea-life was so close, that our toddler only had to don his goggles, wade out, and stick his head in the water to see all kinds of colorful fish!
Congratulations to Crusoe's staff and the Namaqumaqua Village on their environmental efforts, and I hope it pays off!
