Where else diving Hawaii, Bonaire, Belize, Turks and Caicos, Key West
Closest Airport Nadi 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!!!

Dive Conditions

Weather rainy, cloudy Seas choppy, currents
Water Temp 78 to 80 Fahrenheit Wetsuit Thickness 5
Water Visibility 40 to 60 Feet

Dive Policy

Dive own profile yes
Enforced diving restrictions The only thing that was really enforced was to stay with your group when the current was strong. Once the Divemasters determined our ability in the water, they were ok with us doing our own thing. But they were also very careful with some newer divers and stayed very close to them.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? yes

Just what we needed after a long day of traveling We had our own bure with a small pool in the front and a beautiful ocean view! It felt very private as there were walls of bushes between us and the other bures. The only thing we could complain about in the bure was the water pressure in the shower! Our room was kept spotless by an unseen employee who always left flowers and turned down our bed in the evening. We dined in an open air dining/common room that looked out over the ocean.
