Dan Grenier accomplished his dream when he came to Fiji to begin a business in recreational diving. He originally started diving in the Beqa Lagoon area in Pacific Harbor in 1991 as a commercial diver for Scuba Hire. He moved to the Qamea Beach Club in 1992, running their dive operation for two years. In 1994, Dan was approached by the LomaLoma Resort to setup the very first dive operation in the northern Lau Islands. LomaLoma at that time was owned by Sir Ratu Kamisese Mara, who was the president of Fiji. Dan pioneering the untouched waters of this remote location, and settled on Vanua Balavu, opening his own business, Crystal Divers Fiji.
In 1998, Dan decided to move his dive operation to Nananu-I-Ra Island, which is located off the northern tip of Viti Levu. Crystal Divers became more accessible from Fiji's international airport in Nadi, which is only a two and a half hour drive away. Dan has again developed diving the waters in this area and discovered outstanding dive sites in the Vatu-I-Ra Channel.
The Vatu-I-Ra Channel offers spectacular coral reefs and dramatic pinnacles. Our guests can expect to see everything from gardens of giant sea fans and vibrant soft corals to barracuda, turtles, and numerous species of sharks. Our world-class dive sites are also home to myriad colorful reef fishes and invertebrates, as well as occasional pelagic visitors such as mantas, whales, and dolphins. In August of 2001 a twenty-five foot whale shark was spotted by divers at one of our dives sites known as Instant Replay. A rare and spectacular sighting.
