This was my second trip to Fiji to dive with the sharks.  I went 2 years
ago and stayed at the Lagoon Resort.  Beqa adventure divers is located on
site.  This time I decided to stay at The Pearl of the Pacific Resort.  It
is a little more up scale and more expensive.  The Pearl is located a short
distance from the dive boats, and you can arrrange for the boat to pick you
up and drop you off at the resort boat dock.

During the week I was there I did 3 two tank shark dives and 1 two tank
reef dive.  Beqa adventure divers had two 35 foot aluminium hull boats that
carry 12 divers and crew.  There is no head on board.  The boats leave at
about 8:30 am and return around 1 pm.  The boats are fast and the shark
dive is less than a half hour from the boat dock.

The shark dives have become very popular.  When I was there 2 years ago
they limited the dive to one boat and 12 divers and crew.  They now use 2
boats.  During the 3 days I did shark dives both boats were full and all
divers went in at the same time.  The sharks and other game fish don't mind
the extra divers but thats a lot of divers in a small area.  It made it
difficult at times to find a spot to take photographs of the feeding
without running into someone.
