marine mammal sightings

Our region of Fiji is known for its diverse and robust marine life, thanks to the strong tidal currents  that bring nutrient-rich waters from the Koro Sea via the Somosomo Straits. This abundance of nutrients supports a diverse and thriving marine ecosystem, attracting various marine mammals.  The rich biodiversity, including over 1,400 species of reef fish and numerous invertebrates, creates a robust food chain that supports larger marine mammals such as humpback whales and spinner dolphins.  In fact, boats traversing the Somosomo Straits often see seasonal migrations of whales from July to September, while dolphins are routinely spotted throughout the year, taking advantage of the plentiful food supply.
