The main watersports operator at Nadi, Fiji, is Adrenalin Fiji at the Port Denarau Retail Center and at six major Denarau Island resorts. The Adrenalin group of companies provides a wide range of adventure activities such as sport fishing charters, parasailing, jet skiing, surf lessons, snorkel trips, banana boat rides, jet boats, jet ski safaris, and village tours. In 2009 Adrenalin Fiji began operating a one-hour hot air balloon ride over Nadi every morning, which includes a sunrise champagne breakfast.
Adrenalin Fiji’s scuba operator, Dive Adrenalin, organizes scuba diving and PADI certification courses with free bus transfers from all Nadi hotels. The company was recently granted the prestigious Five Star Dive Center rating by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) after an inspection of its facilities by PADI’s regional manager. Five star status is awarded only to companies which achieve the highest standards of service in diver education and dive trips, as well as actively promoting conservation of the marine environment.
Dive Adrenalin manager and PADI course director Andrew Redfern commented, “We are delighted to have been presented with this rating. The next step in our evolution will be to progress to Five Star Instructor Development Center and begin training dive instructors, both local and from overseas. Because we dive right on the outer reef of the Mamanuca Islands, we are able to provide our guests with the best coral and fish life and clearest waters to be found in this area of Fiji.”
