Come join Aqua-Trek in Fiji and dive with Brandon Paige the founder and creator of the Shark Dive. No other place in the world offers 8 species of shark and nearly 300 species of fish on 1 dive. Experience the adrenaline rush of a lifetime under the safe watch of our shark experts!

Aqua-Trek pioneered shark diving in Fiji over 20 years ago and shark expert Brandon Paige created the Beqa shark dive on Shark Reef in 1999. Aqua-Trek now operates the Ultimate Shark Encounter on nearby Lake Reef offering the best visibility, longer bottom time, a larger shark population and more regular tiger shark sightings!

Since 1999 Aqua-Trek has been working closely with the Fiji Government and the traditional owners of the reefs to protect the sharks by having the reefs and the surrounding area declared Marine Protected Areas. We are proud to say, as of 2006, Aqua-Trek in Fiji has been successful with both Shark Reef, Lake Reef and the barrier reef system connecting the two sites, as they all have been declared Marine Protected Areas by the Fiji Government.

Aqua-Trek Beqa also offers world-class soft coral diving in beautiful Beqa Lagoon. Experience soft corals in multihued kaleidoscopes of color and reefs teeming with fish, plus numerous caves and tunnels that are home to weird and wonderful exotic critters. Whether you're a novice or an experienced diver, Aqua-Trek Beqa can offer you first-rate diving adventures. The dive shop, located in Pacific Harbour, features top brand equipment, fast modern boats, and friendly and experienced professional staff. Aqua-Trek offers diving to all of the resorts in the Pacific Harbour area.

Aqua-Trek’s Top 10 Dive Sites in Bega Lagoon

The Shark Dive at the Bistro Only 10 minutes to site. Max depth is 24m and we do 2 dives at the site, the second 18m deep. Our world famous shark and big fish encounter is known as the #1 Shark Dive in the World. The site is an easy dive and is set up for diver safety. Divers stand behind a rope and view the sharks and big fish as the feeder puts food out. Divers can see up to 8 species of shark on one dive including multiple bull sharks and tiger sharks. We have the best safety record and it is a great viewing opportunity of the larger shark species found in the tropics. We also have a wreck at the site which divers can swim around after watching the sharks.

Joes Best This is one large pinnacle that has a giant swim through covered in Soft corals. Blue Ribbon eels can be found here along with Lion fish and many other exotics, max depth is 20m.

Pearl Rock This site consists of about 6 pinnacles in about 18m of water all are covered in beautiful soft corals. Average diving depth is around 14m where the greatest intensity of soft corals is located. This means a long dive time is assured.

Glory Hole This site consists of about 3 large coral pinnacles again covered from the start of the coral heads at 5m down to about 14m. Max depth is about 20m. There is a swim through that has hanging soft corals in yellow and white soft corals. The coral heads have loads of purple and orange Antheas swimming around the soft corals creating a great fusion of colours.

Carpet Cove This site has a wreck located on it. It is about 33m long old trawler. Covered in soft corals and Barracuda are often seen in the area. The wreck lies in about 30m of water after 15min bottom time you ascend up to the reef and swim around a number of coral heads that are covered in soft corals with many of the exotics to be found here, such as Leaf Scorpion fish.

Seven Sisters As the name implies there are 7 coral pinnacles all covered in soft corals and adorned with colourful reef fish from exotics to the more common Butterfly fish and Moorish idols. Max depth is 18m. Coral heads start at 5m and the tops are littered with Anemone Fish and bright red soft corals.

Million Dollar Point This is a shallow site for nice long dives at 16m max. Very photographic. Colours are intense due to shallowness of the site. Soft coral colours here cover the full spectrum of the rainbow. Very beautiful.

Frogs Leap This site is on the outside of the lagoon, so it is predominately a hard coral site. Large plate corals adorn the reef. Good chance to see some larger fish swim by. Great dive site for beginners with no current at the site. Big drop off nearby means these corals are well fed and large. Max depth 20m.

Soft Coral Plateau These are long gulleys running down the reef and finishing at coral heads and a wall. Lots of soft corals and good chances to find small exotic critters in the gulleys. Small white tip reef sharks can be seen here. Easy dive.

Turtle Head Named after the shape of the reef. Soft coral pinnacles coming up from about 20m down. Great soft coral coverage as it is lying in the current belt. Good fish life as well from small exotics to larger cod. Fan corals are found here. Can only be dived on certain tides but well worth it. Max depth 20m

All of the dive sites above are only 10 to 20 minutes away by boat from Pacific Harbour. Below is a map of our many dive sites
