Fiji shark dive WITH BEQA ADVENTURE DIVERS

On the fringes of Beqa Lagoon, Shark Reef Marine Reserve was created to study the resident shark population and in turn aid in the long-term conservation of sharks worldwide. It is here, within Shark Reef Marine Reserve, that The Shark Dive takes place.

Imagine a swirling throng of Jacks, Snappers and Groupers. Now throw into the mix up to 8 different species of sharks; Bulls, Tigers, Sicklefin Lemons, Silvertips, Grey Reefs, Whitetip Reefs, Blacktip Reefs, and Tawny Nurses. This is The Shark Dive, truly a ‘shark lovers’ dream come true.

The first Shark Dive takes place on a reef ledge next to the drop off into the abyss of Beqa Passage. Here at a depth of 30m/100ft, the feeders bring in the main attraction; the Bull Sharks. After spending 17 minutes in “The Arena”, it’s time to head on up to the shallows for the 2nd part of the Shark Dive. Up in “The Den”, the smaller shark species, Whitetip Reefs and Blacktip Reefs, can be found circling, completely at ease with the presence of divers. Photo and video opportunities abound throughout the 45-minute Shark Dive.

The hour-long surface interval between each Shark Dive allows plenty of time to change camera films and to relax. Fresh tropical fruits and tea or coffee are always on offer along with friendly Fijian hospitality.

The second Shark Dive takes place halfway down the reef slope at 16m/55ft. ‘The Take Out’ is where most of the feeding occurs. Often times the Tawny Nurses are the first species to feed before giving way to the Bulls. Having become comfortable with the divers’ presence they will approach the feeders before opening their massive jaws to take the bait on offer. Silvertips, Sicklefin Lemons and Grey Reefs come in to feed when the Bulls allow, but if one of the Tigers turn up then even the Bulls give way. Moving slowly and with purpose the Tiger will take food from the feeders’ hands giving the divers a view of one of the oceans’ top predators. A bottom time of about 35 minutes signals the end of the Shark Dive and everyone makes their way up for a safety stop before climbing back onboard the boat.

A short 20-minute boat ride and we are back at the dock, where the staff will take care of your equipment, rinsing and storing it for you. Head on into the dive shop and have your log books stamped, check out the days’ Shark Dive DVD or make your way next door where a light lunch can be had at The Lagoon Resort.

 

REEF DIVING

The waters of Beqa Lagoon are world renowned for their spectacular soft corals and abundant life, so much so that Beqa Lagoon has been called “The Soft Coral Capital of the World”. Everything from small critters to large pelagic species can be found in these waters while reef diving.

 

WRECK DIVING

  • TASU II
  • The Tasu II is a decommissioned long line fishing vessel purposefully sunk on the sandy bottom at the ‘Seven Sisters’ dive site in the late 1990’s. She is about 30m/100′ from bow to stern lying upright on her keel in about 28m/90′ of water next to the coral pinnacles that make up the Seven Sisters.
  • Having been down for so many years, a good growth of soft corals covers the wreck. Very rarely swept by strong currents, the Tasu II is an ideal site for getting in some good bottom time on a wreck. It is not uncommon to find a school of chevron barracuda circling above the wreck and groupers hiding out inside the superstructure. With a keen eye, lucky divers can spot pipefish wriggling their way across the deck and up the sides of the ship.
  • After exploring the wreck a gentle fin back to the reef finds divers in a maze of seven towering pinnacles. Zebra Sharks can frequently be found resting on the sand just out from the pinnacles and for divers that want a rest, settle down in the sand between the pinnacles and watch as a cloud of butterfly fish move in and give you a ‘clean’.
  • RUSI’S PINNACLE
  • Without doubt, Rusi’s Pinnacle is the favourite dive site of all the staff. Lying upright on the seabed in a depth of 32m/110′ lies the largest of the wrecks in Beqa Lagoon. Measuring about 40m/140′ in length and made of two decks, this old fishing vessel is home to a diversity of life that is quite exceptional.
  • Scuttled in 2000, there is already an incredible coverage of soft corals smothered in brittle sea stars. The top deck railing is home to a giant frogfish; with it’s intricate camouflage it can be quite a challenge to spot in amongst all the encrusting sponges
  • 100ft away stands a solitary pinnacle that soars upwards to within 5m/15′ of the surface. Encrusted with a kaleidoscope of colour, this pinnacle is home to stonefish, lionfish, leaf scorpionfish and moray eels. The top of the pinnacle is carpeted with five different species of anemone fish with their different host anemones. What better way to do a safety stop than by watching these plucky little characters flitting back and forth challenging all who venture that little bit too close.
