See some of the highlights of our last trip to Fiji where we’ve dived with the big bull and tiger sharks at Beqa Lagoon!
It’s amazing to see the bulls moving in first and scooping out the smell of the fresh tuna heads. They’re like steamlined torpedos going for the bait , but as soon a a tiger shark moves in, they all move up in the water column to make space for the big guys!
If you’re thinking of bringing young children on the Fiji trip, rest assured, Fiji is one of the most kid-friendly travel destinations we have ever been to! We have travelled to several destinations in Fiji (including Volivoli and Beqa Lagoon) with kids before ourselves and they have had some of the best times of their lives on the island.
Baby-sitting services are readily available and as we always have lunch back at the resort, they can join us for lunch every day!

If you have any questions about bringing a non-diver on the trip, please don’t hesitate to ask!
August is one of the best times of the year to dive in Fiji! Not only because the weather in Adelaide is usually at it worst, but also because it falls smack bang in the middle of the main scuba season for this region (which runs from April to October) and the visibility tends to peak between July and December.
The water temperature in the Bligh Waters ranges from 24 to 28 degrees. In August, the water temperature is usually between 26 and 27 degrees.
The Bligh Waters is the soft coral capital of the world! If you’re wondering what that means underwater, this area has some of the most colourful reef structures and matching marine life! The Bligh is the famous stretch of ocean that runs between Fiji’s two main islands and has a mix of wall dives, bommies and drift dives! The soft corals are every underwater photographer’s dream, especially when shooting wide angle.
There are large amounts of water moving between the two big islands in Fiji and the waters are nutrient rich, so expect cruisy drift dives with chances of big eagle rays and other big visitors! You only have to look at Google Maps terrain view to see the many reefs in this area and the beautiful dive sites just waiting to be explored in a pristine, pollution-free environment!
This is it! If you have ever looked into big shark action dives, you will have found that the Beqa Lagoon shark dives are rated as the best shark action dives in the world! We’ll be diving Beqa Lagoon with Beqa Adventure Divers at their famous shark diving site!
Expect to see more species on a day of diving in Beqa Lagoon than you have ever seen in a day’s diving before! On the shark dives you can see blacktip reef sharks, whitetip reef sharks, silvertip reef sharks, sicklefin lemon sharks, tawny nurse sharks and the big guys that we’re here for: the bull sharks and tiger sharks of Beqa Lagoon (see below for details!).
Diving with big sharks is an exhilirating experience! At Beqa Lagoon they run one of the best shark dives in the world, where you get the chance to see 8 species of sharks, starting at The Arena at 30m for the big guys, then slowly moving up to the slope at 10m for the medium sized guys and finally we visit the shallows where we’ll see the little ones!
