Aqua-Trek has been operating in Fiji since 1987. The Pacific Harbour location hosts the World’s No. 1 Shark Dive, also offering incredible soft coral diving, wreck diving, and PADI courses through dive master level.
Owner Brandon Paige is the founder and creator of Fiji’s first shark dive. Aqua-Trek’s ‘Bistro’ shark-feeding dive boasts eight species of shark and nearly 300 species of fish.
Aqua-Trek pioneered shark diving in Fiji over 20 years ago and shark expert Brandon Paige created the Beqa shark dive on Shark Reef in 1999. Aqua-Trek now operates the Ultimate Shark Encounter on nearby Lake Reef offering the best visibility, longer bottom time, a larger shark population and more regular tiger shark sightings!
Since 1999 Aqua-Trek has been working closely with the Fiji Government and the traditional owners of the reefs to protect sharks by having the reefs and the surrounding area declared Marine Protected Areas. As a result of their efforts, Shark Reef, Lake Reef and the barrier reef system connecting the two sites have been declared Marine Protected Areas.
Aqua-Trek is located on the grounds of the Club Oceanus Resort, a river-front resort in Pacific Harbour offering affordable accommodation. The resort consists of ten self-contained rooms ranging from The Loft, King Suite, Friendly Four and Dormitory.
All rooms are river-facing and feature fans, air conditioning, private bathroom and kitchen (except for the Loft room which has no kitchen). Resort facilities include swimming pool, laundry, WiFi, BBQ facilities, volleyball, boat marina, river bar and cafe bar and grill.
The Shark Dive at the Bistro a 10-minutes boat ride away. Max depth is 24m, with two dives at the site, the second 18m deep. The site is an easy dive and is set up for diver safety. Divers stand behind a rope and view the sharks and big fish as the feeder puts food out. Divers can see up to eight species of shark on one dive including multiple bull sharks and occasional tiger sharks. There is also a wreck at the site which divers can swim around after watching the sharks.
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.
The Aquatrek Dive Centre itself is located in Pacific Harbour, Fijis. There are accommodation options for Pacific Harbour which you can read about here.
