Fiji – General Info
General and Diving Health
There are numerous hospitals, nursing stations and health centres throughout Fiji and all major towns have hospitals and doctors available. Dengue fever does occur in wet areas during the wet season. Visitors should exercise caution when travelling inland – cover up and use repellent sprays or cream. Follow normal precautions with food whilst travelling to prevent stomach upsets and be sure to drink bottled water only. On board Fiji Siren you will find a fully stocked first aid kit, AED and medical grade O2. Basic supplies will be made available to you, if you require medication please ask your cruise director. For diving related emergencies there are hyperbaric facilities in Suva, Viti Levu. An air evacuation from the Fiji Siren may be required thus diving specific insurance is a must on any liveaboard dive trip.
