[NoneBeqa Adventure Divers is located at the Lagoon Resort in Pacific
Harbour, Fiji. They offer both soft coral and shark/big fish dives. They
are among the most professional diving establishments anywhere. We have
dived a total of three months in Fiji over the last two years: at Wananavu
resort with Kai Viti dives; on the Naia live-aboard; Tui Tai adventure
cruise; Dive Kadavu, Kadavu Island; Koro Sun Dives on Savusavu, Vanua Levu;
and Garden resort on Taveuni Island. Beqa Adventure Divers shop manager,
Andrew, answered all our e-mails prior to our trip to help schedule the
best time frames for us to meet all the different species of sharks that
commonly visit their dive sites. There is no guarantee for wildlife
encounters, however with his dive sites statistics we saw all seven species
of shark their web site stated we might see. Andrew gave us a tip about the
best months to see which species. We saw two different Tiger sharks 3 out
of the 6 times we went on shark dives with them. The Tiger shacks were so
close so you could touch them if you dared. Some young divers were saving
their photos to get ready for show and tell to their future grandchildren,
we only hope that digital storage or printing archiving will live up to
their fancy. It certainly will be one of those unforgettable moments of
life.  Andrew also helped us fix our regulator, loaned us his personal
diving computer when one of ours malfunctioned, and gave us several
valuable diving tips to enjoy diving with sharks even more. He is the best
dive shop manager we have encountered diving anywhere. Their dive boat is
well maintained and organized. Each diver has a personal bin to stow their
gear. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the dive masters are very
experienced, some with over 20 years service. Dive guide Russi has spent 4
years as a dive-master on the Naia live-aboard. He not only shows you
where and what to see, but also how to approach underwater creatures and
structures. Lighting, colors, and currents: his dives are like well
conducted pieces of music. They have some guides who are well worth the
commitment to follow underwater. Beqa Adventures soft coral dives offer
you bottom time according to your ability, and so caters to divers of all
levels of experience and ability. We have done some soft coral diving with
them that are as good as, if not better, than the best dives we had with
Kai Viti dives up north or from the Naia live-aboard. The shark dives are
safe and thoroughly and precisely organized and briefed. They are also
exciting, fun, and memorable. If you plan to dive with them, the Lagoon
Resort is also a perfect match for a place to stay, since the shark dive
boat departs right from the doorstep of the Lagoon resort. We have also
dived with another dive shop which operates in the same areas, the
difference is like staying at well run Four Seasons hotels or at some road
side motel. If you travel that far, make sure that you dive with the best
dive operation there, and experience the shark dives so many divers rave

I'm looking for a boat and a land spot (1 week each) that would cater to my
intrepid snorkeling wife and my Scuba diving self ! Any feedback on Tui Tai
? Qamea ?
