The sailing season in Fiji begins in April and ends around December.
January to April is when the conditions are more likely to be suitable in Fiji for fishing.
This activity is recommended all year round, although October to April claims to be the optimal period.
The dive season is all year round. The winter months of April to October represent the main season for scuba diving in Fiji in terms of visitor numbers, although the visibility tends to peak between the months of July and December when the water is cooler (sometimes, although seldom as cool as 22°C).
Surfing in Fiji is a year round activity. April to October sees the SE trade winds greeted by an abundance of SW swells which transform the reefs into a true surfer’s paradise. Since this is the Southern Hemisphere’s winter the water can give off a slight chill if the wind is up but for the most part the adrenaline will keep your attention up and your body warm. From November to March the wave factory slows down a bit but there is still ample opportunity for any size swell. This time of year is accentuated with calm or light winds and glassy waters.
