Beqa Adventure Divers
Reviewed December 11, 2014 via mobile

I came to the Pacific Harbour for one week specifically to dive with sharks and to do it with Beqa Adventure Divers. They were recommended to me my a dive guide in Townsville. So I came. I didn't realise that November and December is the low season for sharks. Well if 20 bull sharks dive bombing your headspace if low season, then I had an amazing time! See you in high season May to October!

Beqa Adventure Divers are at the top of shark diving and ecotourism. Not only do they offer a thrilling dive where top predators come within inches of you, but they do it as safely as possible while keeping it as a cage-less dive. Beyond the dive, they are a group devoted to research and conservation of sharks. 100% recommended.

A great experience, with staff who obviously enjoy their jobs.
I did both the shark dives and coral dives with the guy's and had a great time.
Sharks, rays, turtles & lots and lots of fish ... what more can a diver want.
Having the on staff researchers along on the shark dives was great as you can learn so much more about their conservation efforts.
Highly recomend to any diver passing trough Fiji.
Many thanks guys.

I dove with Beqa in August 2012, although I was debating the feeding shark protocol within myself I went to this dive site to made my mind about it. The experience was magnificient and the result was a shark fishing free marina the following year. Personel is competent and the experience unique even from a conservation point of view

I liked it so much, I did it three times! I've never done a shark feed dive before (never thought much of the practice), but this experience changed my mind (at least, for this specific operation). First dive is to 95 feet for 15 minutes to see bull sharks, then 75 feet, then safety stop at 15 feet (feeding again). Second dive to 85 feet (bull shark feeding again), then 30-40 feet to finish cruising the reef. They've done it so long that they have the dive profile down pat, so you don't have to worry about getting bent if you follow their instructions (I have a dive computer, and it was OK with the depth and time on each dive). Boats are comfortable (no head), with short ride from harbor. $30 FJ of your cost for the trip goes to the local village that owns the reef (to replace income from fishing; the reef is a no-take, no spear zone). As they explain, this is a shark research org that owns a dive operation and not the other way around. Visability was only about 40-50 feet on all days due to wind/waves, but the sharks swim right by and over you (dive guides have poles to push them away if they get too close). Just be sure to stay in your spot (kneeling, lying prone or hanging on to a line, depending on the sites/levels during the dive) and don't raise your head or stick you arm out with a camera (pole extensions for cameras aren't allowed) and you'll be fine. You must be a certified diver for this trip. Showers, restroom back at shop; area to store gear bag/change of clothes while you're on the boat. Will rince and store your gear overnight if you're diving multiple days.
