The Dive Crew at Ra Divers and Volivoloi Beach Resort are the most experienced in this area of Fiji.
Seci Banuve, (Sethy)
Fleet Captain Class 6 Master and Dive Master
Seci calls Nakorokula Village home.
A local village on the North Eastern coastline just minutes from Ellington wharf.
In fact you can see his village as you leave the Novalau passage on your port side when heading out to Vatu I Ra passage diving.
Seci leads from the front and is a qualified SSI Dive Guide who loves to get wet as well as skipper the boats.
Allan Taylor, (Bola)
Captain Class 6 Master and Dive Master
Bola hails from the near by Nananu I Ra Island originally from Taveuni, One of the Northern Islands often referred to as the “Garden Islands”.
Bola is a PADI Dive Master and it is said that if you look closely enough you will see the gills behind his ears!
The man moves through the water like a shark with little effort and has eyes like a hawk for little critters.
We think Bola has it pretty tough having to come to work and back via boat each day.
He on the other hand is pretty stoked because its not to often he doesn’t catch dinner on the way home!!
Pola Pangalau, (Paula)
SSI Open Water Scuba Instructor/ Kava master
Pola originally comes from the small northern island of Kioa and is of Polynesian descent.
Famous for his Kava sessions Pola is not only an unbelievably patient Diving Instructor but also the resorts very own Kava master.
Come and Join Pola every Wednesday night for a bowl of Kava (traditional drink) or two in the main complex from 7pm.
Soloveni Pubuitamana, (Solo)
SSI Dive Guide
Solo is also from the village of Nakorokula and has been part of the team since 2005, he lives to be in the water.
There is not much of this lad so its not uncommon to see Solo in a 7mm wetsuite in 27 decrees!!!
Solo, like Bola has amazing local knowledge and eyes that can find the tinniest of critters.
Joeli Roqouca (Joe)
Padi Dive Master
Joe is another Nakorokula lad with a smile from ear to ear you cant mis him.
One of Joe’s favourite pass times is heading up to the mountains where he has a family farm producing root crops for his family and village.
If you get time on one of the boat rides ask Joe about his agricultural pass time.
He is always up for a yarn.
Aisea Raiyala (Wilo)
Wilo is the youngest of the team and is currently studying for his Rescue course and in time his Dive Masters ticket.
You will get to know Wilo throughout your stay with u.
Iif you are lucky enough to attend one of our traditional Meke nights (Every Friday) keep an eye out for Wilo the Fijian Warrior!
See our staff page for pics of THAT!
