Today we are going on a journey to explore Cannibal’s Cave, this site is situated along Vatulaca Reef, a short 10 to 12-minute boat ride from Volivoli Beach Resort is one of our modern purpose-built dive boats powered by twin 300-hp Suzuki engines. Cannibal’s Cave is best dived on an incoming tide, it is right on the point of the main reef at Nananu Passage with an assortment of swim-throughs and an array of caves.

There is always lots of fish action schooling around both in the deeper water as well as near the top of the reef itself. Cannibal’s Cave starts at 3m/10’ drops off to around 30m/100’ and is a perfect site for multilevel diving to get the most of your bottom time. It is not unusual for divers to see spotted sweet lips, schooling red bass, chevron barracuda, sea turtles, reef sharks, trevally, octopus as well as many dives worth of macro creatures including ghost pipefish, banded pipefish, popcorn shrimp and of course countless nudibranch and anemone fish making this site their home.
