Service:
  • Accommodation for Divers
  • Diving Charter Boat
  • Equipment Gear Rentals
  • Underwater Photography/Video
Company description Sere-ni-Wai was designed to exacting specifications by a diver for divers right from the very beginning - a most important point to bear in mind is that the SERE is not a converted crew or fishing boat. She was launched new in 1995, conceived and planned as the perfect diving platform.
If you are a discerning diver this is the ship for you. Owned and operated by Captain Greg Lawlor, a fourth generation Fiji resident, who pioneered Fiji`s Liveaboard diving in his last ship the Mollie Dean, you and a maximum of nine others will enjoy the space and comfort of a 100` ship.
Accommodation is in five spacious cabins, there is a large salon/dining area and superb dive deck with its twin curved stairways to the ultimate dive platform just inches from the warm blue Pacific.
The Sere`s crew are amongst the regions most experienced and delight in providing the best there is to offer, from superb meals, discrete service, local knowledge and the ability to make you feel someone very special.
The Sere is available for private charter and in addition has selected scheduled trips for individuals. We dive Fiji`s finest sights with the knowledge of 15 years experience.
Dive Deck
From a divers point of view this is the Sere`s highlight. Stretching the full 22` width, and at least that long, this section is at the very aft end of the ship. Here there is an external camera table with cupboards and air hose, two fresh water rinse tanks, wetsuit racks, dives brief whiteboard and ample all weather seating. When not gearing up, this is a social centre where guests can relax in open air, lie in the sun or find a shady spot to watch the waves go by.
Dive Platform
From the dive deck this area is accessed from either side by two short semicircular stairways. A tank rack is set at waist height so all that is necessary is to put fins, mask and wait belt on (these are stored in your personal tank rack), step into your BC and take one step into the water. A crew member is always standing by to pass cameras or other accessories and likewise to take them from you on your return. Access back onto the platform is by one of the two dive ladders and a fresh water shower is immediately adjacent for your comfort. The tanks never leave this area, they are filled immediately on your return.
Most of the trips are for seven nights (Standard cruises) and the itinerary would include visits to the following areas - Gau (Nigali Pass), Wakaya, E6, & Namena. Every so often, longer trips (Extended cruises) are scheduled and these would include the following areas, subject to weather and duration - Taveuni & Northern Lau Group.
The first and check out dive may be at Ngau Island. There’s a barrier reef on the west coast where strong currents flow through Nigali Passage into a protected lagoon where the pinnacles are crowned with all kinds of soft and hard corals and multitudes of reef fish hovered above the corals. The dive is drifting through the channel to the point of a coral head and anchoring yourselves along some dead coral and rocks to watch the fish action. Whitetip reef sharks , barracuda, groupers and schools of brown snapper circled and drifted in the current as it swept past you.
Continuing north in the Koro sea, your next dive sites bordered Wakaya Island, home of one of the most luxurious and exclusive resorts in Fiji. Some of the most unique creatures resided in this area such as yellow leaf scorfish, blotched fairy basselet, long-nose hawkfish, unicorn surgoeonfish and colourful blue and yellow ribbon eels.
At the north end of the Koro Sea off the coast of Vanua Levu lies a narrow tall island, Namenalala, which is surrounded by barrier reefs. Ninety per cent of the island is a nesting ground for sea turtles and for great flocks of birds. The lagoon marine reserve where the most stunning multi-hued corals cling to craggy outcroppings.

Giant tridachna clams are nestled on the sand shelves and green moray eels poke their heads from cuts in the wall. Zigzag oysters, purple tunicates, green tree corals, delicate feather stars hanging on black gorgonian coral fans, hordes of reef fish fluttering among mounds of pastel soft corals and red seawhips carpeted stove-pipe formations punctuated with undercuts and craggy sides...
