Full Day Adventure Experience
Pick up provided from your Nadi/Denarau or Fijian/Natadola Resorts and transfer you to Port Denarau to board the vessel the ‘Yasawa Flyer’. This large modern high-speed catamaran features two large observation decks, air-conditioned lounge and even a bar offering espresso coffee. Cruise through the Mamanuca Islands and then onto the stunning more isolated Yasawas Islands,
Disembark at Kuata Island, the closest of the Yasawa Islands to Nadi. Kuata Island is a hidden small gem in the Yasawa Island archipelago. A picture postcard beach, transparent turquoise waters, unusual tall rock formations and that same warm hospitality synonymous with Fijian people. There’s small rustic accommodation on Kuata Island offering a Robinson Crusoe style experience with the comforts of a restaurant, bar, hammocks and even a swimming pool!
Following your briefing on the Kuata Island beachfront you’ll board a boat together with your guides and travel to our snorkelling with sharks reef site. Departure time varies depending on tidal and sea conditions. You won’t go hungry with morning tea & afternoon tea and lunch all served on Kuata Island. For the remainder of the day the facilities of Barefoot Kuata are available to you. There’s good snorkelling close to the beachfront, kayaks, walking tracks and even a massage service available at an additional cost.
Safety
Yes. You’ll be provided with safety instruction from our experienced guides who’ve spent hundreds of hours getting to know our resident school of sharks. Our guides will be in the water with you the entire time and will closely monitor the sharks behaviour to ensure your safety.
What to see and expect
There are two main species of sharks encountered, White Tip Reef Sharks and Black Tip Reef Sharks, both are common in the tropical warm waters of the South Pacific. Each species can grow to a length of just over 1.5 metres although under the water they appear 25% larger, a snorkelling face mask optical illusion. White Tips are the dominant species and are by nature an inquisitive shark not frightened to check you out. Their Black Tip relatives are by contrast timid and will shy away if they feel threatened and its common to see up to six sharks.
The Black Tip and White Tip Reef Sharks prefer shallower waters making snorkelling easy with good visibility. It’s even possible to see the sharks from our boat before entering the water. Water depth varies between 4 - 6 metres depending on the tide.
If you are not a good swimmer and haven’t snorkelled before or don’t want to snorkel at all , Buoyancy aids are available for less confident swimmers and because these sharks prefer shallow waters there’s no necessity to dive under the water to secure a thrilling view. Non-snorkellers can join the day but sit out the snorkelling experience.
