Beqa Adventure Divers is a PADI Dive resort specializing in shark diving. The dive centre is located at Lagoon Resort in Pacific Harbour and is ideally suited to whisk you out to the shark diving, reefs and wrecks of Beqa Lagoon in a matter of minutes, with a free courtesy shuttle from anywhere in Pacific Harbour.
On the fringes of Beqa Lagoon, Shark Reef Marine Reserve was created to study the resident shark population and in turn aid in the long-term conservation of sharks worldwide. It is here, within Shark Reef Marine Reserve, that The Shark Dive takes place. B.A.D.’s stewardship of Shark Reef is not limited to the Sharks alone but extends to protecting all of its inhabitants, with considerable resources invested to document fish life and the long-term effects of their conservation efforts.
Beqa Lagoon is also a hot spot for soft coral, with some beautiful reef dives sites including Pearl Rock, Fantasy 1 and 2, Glory Hole, Seven Sisters, and Million Dollar Point. There are also several wrecks, including an old trawler at Carpet Cove and another at Johns Tunnel.
Dive and accommodation packages are available on enquiry at nearby Club Oceanus Resort, Uprising Resort and The Pearl Resort.
Beqa Adventure Divers are located in Pacific Harbour, Beqa Lagoon, Fiji.

Their minimal draft enables us to drive them to within feet of the reefs and beaches visited.
Imagine a swirling throng of Jacks, Snappers and Groupers. Now throw into the mix up to 8 different species of sharks; Bulls, Tigers, Sicklefin Lemons, Silvertips, Grey Reefs, Whitetip Reefs, Blacktip Reefs, and Tawny Nurses.
The first Shark Dive takes place on a reef ledge next to the drop off into the abyss of Beqa Passage. Here at a depth of 30m, feeders bring in the main attraction; bull sharks. After spending 17 minutes in “The Arena”, it’s time to head on up to the shallows for the second part of the Shark Dive. Up in “The Den”, the smaller shark species, Whitetip Reefs, and Blacktip Reefs can be found circling, completely at ease with the presence of divers.
The second Shark Dive takes place halfway down the reef slope at 16m. ‘The Take Out’ is where most of the feeding occurs. Often times the Tawny Nurses are the first species to feed before giving way to the Bulls. Silvertips, Sicklefin Lemons, and Grey Reefs come in to feed when the Bulls allow and the dive has a total bottom time of about 35 minutes.
