Fiji diving safaris with the Island Dancer II

All 5 of Island Dancer II's cabins are air-conditioned and feature en-suite facilities with hot water showers. The comfortable saloon is equipped with facilities where scuba divers can review their photos and videos, or simply relax while listening to music or settling down with a good book. The open-air area provides a sun-deck for sun worshippers, or a shaded area for the more cautious.

The standard of amenities, as well as Island Dancer II's safety features, are on par with the standards of the Aggressor Fleet and Dancer Fleet ensuring your comfortable and safe exploration of Fiji's renowned dive sites, known for eagle rays, mantas, turtles, sharks and giant groupers, as well as outrageously colourful soft corals.

Not just for diving, guests onboard Island Dancer II also have the opportunity to visit a remote Fijian village and witness a Kava ceremony and warrior dance. The social atmosphere on board Island Dancer II is often enhanced by local beer and wine being free of charge.

Customer reviews: 

"The service on the boat was excellent, the food was very good, and the scuba diving was outstanding. We were able to rent a dive computer and pressure gauge after one of ours failed. The divemasters did a great job and showed us lots of new marine life." - William McGee, USA ...

"We had a ball (although Maureen did not dive) and the diving was good to exceptional. The liveaboard crew were relaxed, very hospitable and the food was superb. The boat is a little tired however, and the big bunk was somewhat cramped for me. Nonetheless, we were well treated and had a fabulous week. The shark feed was the very best dive anyone on board had experienced and some of these divers were on their 10th and 11th live-aboard expedition." - Charles and Maureen Ovadia, Australia ...

"All in all, I will not complain and I found this liveaboard quite enjoyable. But I must write that, even if there were some really good points, some aspects were not good at all. The staff was really friendly and, more important, professional. The dive master was cool but enough vigilant to make the dives safe. They provide nitrox at a quite reasonable price. BUT even if the food was ok, there was not enough vegetables and fruits for our taste. We got very good meat, but they could have given more fish. Talking about food, we still do not understand why they did not provide a proper breakfast on the last day of the cruise. There was ample time to do so, and the fact that they did not take care of us on the last morning has really left us a bad impression. The cabins were average. Spacious enough but not as luxurious as advertised. And in our cabin we had a constant problem with bad smells." - Erick Bourai, Cambodia ...
