Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was travelling to JMC as a family with three girls aged 20, 16 and 11. The youngest two completed their open water course with Kini and then joined the rest of us who were already certified at a few of the reefs and Marine Park a short boat trip away. The children received amazing tuition and attentiveness the entire time. Highly professional outfit with high ratio of dive staff : divers and a strong focus on safety was evident. Everyone on the team was super friendly and went out of their way to ensure that all divers had a spectacular time whilst accommodating the difference in experience levels aboard. Dan, Thomas, Kini, Aggie, Leo and everyone else - thanks for a wonderful time. Prices were not cheap - but diving in exotic locations rarely is. Reef sharks, manta rays, sea turtles, soft corals, etc. Plenty to see - and the night dive was also a highlight of the trip. I am sure these will be memories for the kids to last a lifetime. And it was wonderful being able to share the experience with them and the JMC diving team.

I reached out to Jean-Michel Cousteau diving prior to arriving in Savusavu and the responder on the other end (Aggie) couldn't have been more helpful. I had the pleasure of meeting her face to face when I arrived for my first dive and she was just as delightful in person as she was over email.

The whole staff at the dive shop were wonderful, experienced and patient. I was able to watch them coach young divers working on their certifications with thoroughness, care and kindness.

I did 5 dives with the team and Tuks, Bait (yep, that's really his name), Aggie, Nathan, George, Tua, and a whole cast of other staff who names I'm forgetting and each one made the experience safe, beautiful, friendly and easy (no assembling my own BCD / tank / reg), and they brought me the best latte post-dive (not easy to find in Savusavu)

My favourite spot was probably Mystery. The only dark cloud was no trip to Namena, but that was weather related, not dive shop related. The price was more than reasonable especially considering I had to rent everything as flight weight limits discouraged me from packing my dive gear. If you're on Vanua Levu, dive with these folks for an unparalleled experience. I will definitely be returning!

Great team in a stunning location. Did the Open Diver Course while on holiday at the resort. Friendly, knowledgeable instructors who went out of their way to make sure I got the most out of it. Fascinating dives - really opened my eyes to a new world under the sea.
Highly recommended.

I earned my Open Water certification through JMC while on vacation. Kini was my dive instructor and he is the best! He was very patient with me as I had never dived before. He has a very calm demeanor and was very reassuring. All the guys at JMC are great to work with. After earning my certificate, I went on a few more recreational dives and became more confident with each one. I really want to thank Kini and the rest of the dive team for introducing me to the world of diving, and I am looking forward to doing more. And of course, regardless of your skill level, there’s no better place to dive than in Fiji, Thank you Kini and JMC Dive Center for an unforgettable experience!

If we could give the staff at JMC Diving 6 stars, we would have. Every day of diving was a fantastic experience. Highest level of professionalism and enjoyment that you are likely to find in a dive shop.

World class service and diving. Small groups. Quick out and back to the reefs. I completed my advanced open water with Tua. He was a great instructor. We both like looking for the micro life and he has a great eye. We saw a leaf fish, ornate pipe fish, a broccoli anemone moving to a new home, crocodile fish, a feather star moving/swimming, a HUGE mangrove snapper, Oriental Sweet lips, juvenile and adult midnight snappers, eels, shrimp, glorious reef fish and nudibranchs. The night dive was incredible. From the captain, to the deck hand and Tua, they made sure your dive was safe and enjoyable. I highly recommend Jean Michel Cousteau Diving. Danny can help get you scheduled.

Big thanks to the team for looking after our family and for taking us on some fantastic dives. We had a mix of experience in our group and the team catered to our needs perfectly. Everyone was super helpful in the shop, the boat and under the water and the whole experience was wonderful.

Very professional and friendly dive team. Huge number of dive sites and lots of wild life to see. The dive team takes care of everything for you. Great dive boat too. My dive master Taks was simply brilliant.

Highly recommend the resort and the diving. You won't be disappointed.

Professional, caring, fun loving team of dive masters and support staff. Without exception they were very helpful from the minute we arrived showing us world class dive sites including writing the names of things we had never seen before. Then warm towels as soon as we finished diving and they handled all gear quickly and efficiently. Amazing. I call out Aggie, George and Dan in particular but everyone was great. We did 10 dives over 7 days.

When I heard that Cousteau Diving was the best dive shop not just on the island, but in all of Fiji, I admit I was a little skeptical. After diving here for a week, I can confidently say I think they’re not only the best diving shop in all of Fiji, they are one of the best in the South Pacific. My husband has decades of diving experience (so he has seen all types of dive operators in action), and he thought Cousteau was exceptional as well. I did my four open water dives here to finish my PADI dive certification, and the instruction was excellent. Every staff member (not just my instructor) was safety conscious and attentive every step of the way. Afterwards, I was a little nervous to do my first dive as a newly certified diver, but I should not have worried. They had a dive master in front of me leading the way, and another dive master bringing up the rear, both checking in with me the whole way. My teenage kids, who are certified (but without tons of experience), were along for this trip. I normally worry about them diving, but this time they were the hands of the exceptionally capable and competent Joji (George). Joji is, in a word, amazing. The minute before you realize you need something, Joji will be there, handing it to you. He knows how to assess the skill level of every diver and give them the right experience. We loved all the divemasters and thought everybody was fantastic, but Joji has a special place in our hearts. Thank you for the phenomenal experience.
