Barefoot Kuata Bull Shark Certified Dive
- Duration: 1 Days (approx.)
- Location: Yasawa Islands, Nadi
- Product code: BSCD
It is no secret that Fiji is world-famous for Shark Diving. Rare are places in the world where you can jump in the water and meet wild, 2-3 meters sharks! You shouldn't miss The Barefoot Collection shark dive designed by marine biologists! It’s the elusive Bull Shark! Other shark species sighted possible at the dive site include Tiger Sharks, Lemon sharks, Whitetip and Blacktip Reef Sharks.
Let our shark experts give you an intimate insight into the lives of the sharks in their natural habitat all year round.
Please note: The Bull Sharks may be less frequently sighted during their mating season, which is from November to February.
Departing each morning at 08:30 on board Catamaran - Yasawa Flyer II operated by Awesome Adventures Fiji. You will travel through the scenic group of islands called the Mamanuca and then disembark at the gateway of the Yasawa islands and our island home - Barefoot Kuata.
You will be greeted by our dive team who will give you a briefing about the sharks and the do's and dont's once you are in their environment. A short 15-minute boat ride to the shark dive site then you will be taken down approximately 12 meters. You will be guided by your dive crew to the specially constructed low reef wall for this dive. Once everyone is in position the sharks are fed either on the ground in front of you or in open water a few metres above using fish head providing the perfect opportunity to see the apex predators up close. You will spend approximately 45 minutes bottom time.
Unlike most dive sites in Fiji we have strict rules for feeding the sharks. No hand feeding as we pole feed only. We train the sharks that there is no point in coming to close and must behave.
For the remainder of the day, the facilities at Barefoot Kuata Island are available to you. The resort offers a 'Robinson Crusoe' style experience with the comfort of a restaurant, bar, hammocks and 3 swimming pools! There's good snorkeling close to the beachfront, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, walking tracks and even an optional visit to a local Fijian village (additional cost).
For any additional items, you may wish to purchase while on the island please be advised that the staff will set up an account for you that you can bill back to and settle prior to departing the island as there is no cash taken at the bar.
Should you pay by credit card on the island there will be an additional 3.5% credit card administration fee charged.
