Ultimate Encounter Snorkel with Sharks in Fiji


  • Delicious 2-course lunch and snorkel gear included

  • Perfect for beginners—no previous snorkeling experience required

  • Hotel pickup and drop-off, and return scenic cruise to Kuata included


Your day of adventures begins with a coach transfer from your Nadi/Denarau accommodation. Arrive at Port Denarau, board your boat, and then jet off past the Mamanuca Islands toward the Yasawa Islands. When you get to the scenic Kuata Island, get a safety briefing before boarding a small boat to the reef site, where the sharks are. No previous snorkeling experience is required, so it’s perfect for novices and pros alike. Get up close to the reef sharks and see the beautiful coral and fish. You are well-fed and watered throughout the day with morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea included. After your shark encounter, you have access to Barefoot Kuata Resort, which has a pool, hammocks, a restaurant, bar, kayaks, and walking tracks to enjoy. Or, you could just bask in the sunshine on the beach. The day ends with a return cruise and coach transfers.
