Inter Reef Gardens ...
 
Don't let the name put you off, as some of the prettiest reefs are found in these very accessible reefs. These beautiful gardens are scatted along the coast within close proximity to the coastline, and more importantly ports. Some reefs include pretty cays or small islands.

They are accessible by day boats and offer the diver safe shallow dives where whips and fans are plentiful because of the regular flow through of water from tides. Reefs are also abundant with small brightly coloured fish that dwell in shallower waters. Magnificent, soft corals, giant clams, turtles.

Stingrays are numerous and found on the beautiful sandy patches that are scattered between the bommies. Even the odd Dugong has been spotted feeding on the sea grasses. Birds are also plentiful because of the islands and cays around.

These sites are recommended for easygoing casual dives. Most operators offer two dives with time for snorkelling in the middle while others can even offer three dives. There is also a half-day tour to Green Island if you are after a really quick trip.

Dive Locations:
Green Island, Low Isles, Tongue Reef, Upolu Cay
