Say the word 'Fiji' in a room full of divers and you can watch as eyes widen and smiles begin to appear on suntanned faces.

The nation of Fiji is comprised of over three hundred beautiful islands in the South Pacific ocean. The unique topography, where towering green mountains drop straight into a crystal clear ocean fringed with coral reefs, has attracted tourists for decades. Newlyweds kick their feet up and watch sunset, surfers take shade inside racing emerald tubes and, most importantly for us, scuba divers and freedivers explore the reefs below the surface.

Names like the Bligh Waters, Namena, Beqa Lagoon and Taveuni roll off photographers' tongues inspiring the lust for adventure in those listening to their underwater tales.

Fiji has been written about so many times in so many dive magazines that photographer Andreas Goldhahn and I have decided to take a different approach in telling the story; we leave it to the photos.

Photographer Andreas Goldhahn captured the images below with the Nikon D500 or the Nikon D7200.
