About Beqa Adventure Divers
Beqa Adventure Divers have worked closely with the Government of Fiji and the traditional owners of Shark Reef to have it designated as a protected Marine Park, Shark Reef Marine Reserve. Our holistic Conservation Project has been hailed worldwide as a template for sustainable and efficient Eco-Tourism.
We are involved in ongoing cutting-edge research with an international team of scientists to better understand the Bull Shark population of Shark Reef Marine Reserve and have set up a comprehensive database about The Shark Dive which is unparalleled and continues to yield unique insights into the mysterious life of our free-roaming Sharks. We also conduct regular surveys and fish counts aimed at documenting the results of our stewardship of this unique marine resource. We do all of this with the aim of learning more about these majestic and endangered animals and contributing to their long-term survival.
Our findings have already prompted us to greatly expand the protected area by creating the protected Fiji Shark Corridor of close to 30 nautical miles along the southern coastline of Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu.
Fiji’s first National Marine Park
As of November 2014, Shark Reef Marine Reserve has been designated Fiji’s first National Marine Park, with BAD being entrusted with its day-to-day management. This groundbreaking development is a great honor but also a great step forward in ensuring that the park will be monitored and enforced efficiently.
We will also take you to world-renown Beqa Lagoon, the Soft Coral Capital of the World. Here you will experience spectacular reef landscapes that are teeming with life, Fiji’s famous lush soft coral forests, mysterious wrecks, and exhilarating drift dives. Featuring over fifty world-class dive sites, diving in the Beqa Lagoon caters to all experience levels.
