“YAMMY” 23 foot fiberglass Yamaha boat with single 40 HP Yamaha outboard. The “YAMMY” is our local reef boat and has a low draught, is simple to use for quick sessions to any one of our local breaks or sites. She can handle the outside reef very well with a V-Hull shape and is great for quick trips anywhere. The YAMMY is the quickest and simplest way to get to any local surf break or dive site and due to its size and draught is the most versatile in our local reef conditions.
“WAVE HUNTER” 29 foot fiberglass Yamaha boat with single 4-stroke 90 HP Mariner. The “WAVE HUNTER” has a roof top, she will go with larger groups to our local breaks and sites, as well as out to Frigates and is as fast and comfortable as any of our larger boats.
“WAVE RIDER” 30 foot aluminum monohull with a twin engine Yamaha 115HP setup. The “WAVE RIDER” is our larger work horse and spends most of her time taking our divers to trips further out, including Beqa & Frigates and back. She has a roof top. The Wave Rider is a V-Hull shape, is spacy with much comfort.
“FIJI EXPLORER” 32 foot aluminum catamaran with two new 225 HP Mercury Optimax outboards. The “FIJI EXPLORER” will take out large dive groups only. She is specifically designed for group diving, with a back entry ladder for easy step up after your dives and has a hard roof top.
“DAU WAI” 35 foot aluminum catamaran was added in mid 2014. Dau Wai means Water expert. With 2 300HP engines she is now the largest dive boat in the fleet allowing even more space for groups!
Waidroka Resort is located close to the world famous Beqa Lagoon and the amazing variety of local reefs offer an exceptional diving experience. Coral Coast diving offers unexplored diving as well as many dive sites of world renown such as sites in and around Beqa Lagoon. Every dive site has something special or unique to see and dives range from safe and easy to wall dives in fast currents.
Beqa Lagoon is surrounded by over 190 miles of spectacular coral reef. Within the lagoon, the water is clear and warm, visibility is typically over 100 feet (30m), currents are mild, and the water temperature stays a fairly constant 80°F (26°C). Many of the most spectacular dive spots are only a few minutes from shore, and if you stayed long enough, you could explore over 100 different reefs!
Beqa Dive Dives
The world-famous Beqa Shark feed dives are on offer to anyone staying at Wiaroka Resort. The resort’s dive boat will take you and your dive guide to join up with other divers from Aqua-Trek at The Bistro dive site inside the lagoon where many bull sharks, silver tips, grey nurse and the occasional tiger shark are hand-fed by Aqua-Trek’s experienced dive masters. These sharks have been studied for many years; the larger ones are about 9ft/3m long, and it is an awesome experience to see them circling only metres away from the divers. These dives take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Surf the Fiji Pipeline (otherwise known as Frigates Passage). Voted one of the best two waves in Fiji, the Pipeline is a powerful, fast developing world class left. The break is located on the southwestern barrier reef off the island of Beqa, just a short distance from Waidroka Bay Resort.
