Unexpectedly strong currents, choppy water, very poor shore diving
conditions. No one looked at my C card or had any idea of the the divers'
experience in our group. Three very inexperienced divers were abandoned on
their first night dive to find their own way back to the boat. This night
dive occurred in the mouth of a river with very poor visibility due to
recent rain run off. 
Boat crew and dive masters were very friendly however their limited English
made communication difficult at times. Resort food and accommodations were
great except for large flying cockroaches in several rooms. Hey it's the
tropics was not what I wanted to hear from the resort directors. My husband
& I had stayed at Octopus Resort on Waya in the Yasawas the week
previous and saw hardly a mosquito. I would definitely go back there!
The Beqa Shark Dive was a very positive experience for the divers in my
group who participated as 2 or 3 big tigers came for the show calming
things down a bit. My experience with the dive masters in the week leading
up to the shark dive had not given me enough confidence in the Beqa dive
operation to personally participate. I'm not a fan of shark feeds anyhow.
Luckily for my friends nothing went wrong.
