Getting There
L.a. to Nadi, 2 hour bus ride
to Pacific Harbour and an hour
boat ride to Beqa Island. I
thought it was not too bad. We
went Fiji Air and had a
wonderful experience with
them!  I wish our airlines in
the US were as pleasant and
thoughtful!!!

You need to bring batteries because they don't have any, in fact, we left
some with them!  They provide a water bucket on the boats and a dedicated

  We went on this trip with a group from our  dive shop, High Plains SCUBA
in Ft. Collins, CO. We were more than a little nervous as this was the

getting there, but it was definitely worth it!!  We were greeted by the
resort employees on the beach with a welcome
