Beqa Lagoon Resort, Fiji Islands
Postponed: Dates TBD
Join us on the Fiji Islands in June of 2020. June is the perfect time to visit Beqa Lagoon Resort. The water is warm enough that a shorty or 3-mil suit is all you require to stay nice and warm. The rain has normally ended by June providing us beautiful warm sunshine. I can’t predict the weather, but the forecast is excellent!
This is sold as a 10-day adventure for both scuba divers and non-divers alike. Shorter or longer trips are available. We would leave on June 1 and arrive at the Nadi airport on June 3 due to passing the international date line during our flight. You have alternative choices for pricing with and without airfare, diver or non-diver vacationer, and longer or shorter trips.
Beqa Lagoon Resort is on Beqa Island, a short boat ride from the mainland. As you near the shoreline, the sound of Fijians singing a traditional welcome song will be the first sign you’ve arrived in paradise. A warm smile and a floral lei greet you when you step onto the sand of this enchanted island resort, where even the palm trees seem to sway to the music in the warm sea breeze.. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel at home among the tropical flowers, warm waters and secluded private villas on the island-where no roads and no cars exist to interrupt your tranquility.
World-class diving, delicious cuisine, relaxing spa treatments, and the incomparable Fijian hospitality are yours to savor and enjoy throughout your stay. Feel the warmth of this spectacular island paradise-its wonderful weather, tranquil waters, beautiful villas, and friendly smiles you’ll not soon forget. This is an intimate resort with only 24 Fijian-style villas, called bures. These comfortable traditional structures are all air conditioned. Enjoy sweeping ocean views from one of the resorts beachfront bures. Go Deep Scuba has three beachfront bures available during this 10-day period. The first three adventure divers that send in their deposit get their choice of a beachfront bure or beautiful Koi Pond bures. If you want the beachfront bure, send in your deposit soon!
A short boat ride from the resort brings you to a wonderland of marine life and some of the world’s best diving in clear, warm waters. The many unique dive sites along the coastline provide ample opportunities to view and photograph a myriad of marine life. Look for octopus, garden eels, orangutan crabs, rays, numerous fish species and huge fans or explore shipwrecks. Fiji is known as the Soft Coral Capital of the world. View these wonders, guided by PADI dive masters who have been exploring the Beqa Lagoon since they were children. Dive depths range from 60-90 feet with visibility up to 100 feet. The resort has a full-service PADI dive operation on-site and Nitrox is available. I will be offering scuba diving classes to be announced.
Shark & Big Fish Encounter
Diving at the world-famous Shark & Big Fish Encounter at Cathedral is included. We will be enjoying a 2-tank adventure at this unique pelagic fish and shark habitat. Swim with eight incredible shark species including 15-foot tigers, bulls, lemons, silver tips, white tips, black tips, gray reef, and nurse. This will be an unforgettable experience!
As a guest, we become part of the Fiji family, visiting the islanders in their nearby villages, meeting children at a local school, and witnessing awe-inspiring traditional ceremonies. You won’t believe your eyes during the sacred fire walking ceremony as village warriors in traditional dress chant and walk across scalding stones, as they have done for over 300 years. This mysterious ritual originated on Beqa Island. Sit side by side with local friendly Fijians as you participate in the famous kava ceremony. Every day brings a new and interesting cultural activity!
Afternoons belong to you. Swim, snorkel, hike to a waterfall, paddle board, kayak, or go deep sea fishing!
