Fiji -Volivoli and Beqa Lagoon – March 16-30, 2023
Join Aquaventure on this Fijian adventure!
Beqa Lagoon – Scuba diving enthusiasts will have a chance to plunge into the amazing underwater world at Beqa Lagoon Resort – VOTED ONE OF THE WORLD’S TOP DIVE RESORTS by Scuba Diving Magazine Readers! The GREAT BEQA REEF surrounds our island with 190 miles of spectacular coastline. You’ll enjoy some of the best diving in Fiji, the Soft Coral Capital of the world. With over 100 unique sites to discover, divers are able to explore at a variety of depths with sites as shallow as 15ft (5m) and others drop away to nearly 100ft (30m) and beyond. With year-round temperatures ranging between a cool 75˚f and a bathwater 84˚f divers are comfortable in 3mm to 5mm suits.
All of our boat dives are guided by PADI Divemasters who have been diving the waters of Beqa since they were children. Knowing every small hole and hiding place on these pristine reefs they are able to show divers all of the colorful and amazing treasures that these waters hold from Blue-ribbon eels, Clown Triggerfish, Leaf Scorpionfish to camouflaged day Octopus. All the while you dive in a rainbow of vivid pink and orange anthias and silver-blue fusiliers. Take some time to explore sunken wrecks or even feed your adrenaline with the Beqa ‘Big Fish/Shark Encounter ’, a dive that teases you with huge groupers, bait balls of massive Trevally, and the chance of being up close and personal with 9 different species of sharks including tiger sharks. Why not even travel out to the edge of the reef and dive along under the famous Frigates surf break, enjoying your lunch on the boat as you watch waves crash, and sneaking in that third dive before heading back to the resort and happy hour.
Our beautiful house reef is perfect for diving any time of day or night, when the fancy takes you. Located straight out from the resort, the reef boast healthy hard corals, numerous juvenile reef fish, rays, and even the illusive seahorse likes to hide in the shallow eel grass. Reaching a maximum depth of 25ft (8m) this site is not only perfect for diving, but makes an ideal protected area for snorkelling your day away.
We will be staying at Volivoli Beach resort for the second week of this adventure. Ocean View Rooms are beautifully finished in sustainable hard-woods, featuring one queen size bed and 2 single beds , Wi-Fi**, deck chairs, 2 large ceiling fans, air con, tea and coffee facilities , balcony and Volivoli’s famous 180 degree Ocean views!
The reefs in the surrounding Bligh Waters are some of the healthiest in the world, with very little pollution and few boats, so you’ll be able to see an array of marine life including anemone fish, turtles, colourful soft coral and reef sharks.
Some of Ra Divers’ most popular sites are in the fascinating Vatu i ra Passage. These sites are a mixture of walls, bommies and drift dives, all of which are teaming with life and colour. Sites like Black magic mountain, Mellow yellow and Instant replay will soon be etched in your memory forever!
