The Taveuni Great White Wall
The great visibility let us see 40 meters of the wall

Our third day on the Taveuni island started early. It was the day that we were going to try to dive the famous Great White Wall. Soon you will understand why this is the dive sites name.
 
At the diving point, the instructor gave us the dive site briefing. Our Adventure would officially start at 15 meters deep. Once there, we would enter a cave covered with soft and hard corals, sponges, crinoids and countless colors.

Leaving the cave, almost 20 meters deep already, you get to think for a second that you are not in a tropical island anymore, but skiing on the whitest snow that may exist. That was what I felt when I saw that 200 meters wall covered by white corals. The great visibility let us see 40 meters of the wall. Among white corals, you can see splashes of fluorescent orange, purple, blue, green. But the effect, surely, is of a huge White Wall.

 

It was pretty easy to get to 30 meters without noticing. After all, the wall was so fascinating that all I wanted at the time was to see it all. When I looked at my dive computer and realized I was at a depth of 30 meters already, I returned quickly to 20 meters; nevertheless, I was 2 meters beyond the limit my license allowed. I couldn’t help it!
 
 
It was an experience that I could never believe if someone told me. A blast of happy feelings! I couldn’t even smile because at each smile, a liter of water entered in my mask – I never had to clean the mask so often (laughs). It was a unique, amazing and gratifying experience.
 
We returned to the hotel and went out fishing with a local resident soon after. Dean hooked a 100 kg yellowfin tuna, but unfortunately the fish was stronger than the three men holding it. He was disappointed, after all, this was the second time that he lost exactly the same kind of fish and in the same way (laughs). But, the saga continues and one day he will make it! We also saw a 200 kg marlin jumping out of the water. Myself, I fished a 7 kg skipjack tuna, which we decided to give to the local village. The day couldn’t have ended better than this.
