These sharks are crazy close. Notice the gopro on the stick to the left. I am sure everyone brings a camera for this experience. So how many sharks will you see. It kind of looks like you would lose count. What species of sharks could you see on this Fiji shark dive adventure? The tour folks report eight species of Sharks: Blacktip Reef Sharks, Whitetip Reef Sharks, Grey Reef Sharks, Bull Sharks, Silvertip Sharks, Tawny Nurse Sharks, Sicklefin Lemon Sharks, and the occasional Tiger Shark. While sharks are the significant adventure part of this dive, you will also see hundreds of other species of reef fish.
Where does one stay when taking a trip like this? One option is the Pearl South Pacific Resort that provides some luxury accommodations so you can relax in pleasure after what may be a terrifying dive for some but exhilarating one for others. Whatever you do on this dive we can only emphasize that it brings a whole new meaning to having a buddy that has your back. Enjoy the bubbles and the sharp teeth!
If you want to know what it's really like to do the Fiji Shark Dive, then read this story by Repeat Traveller who experienced it first hand and lived to tell about it. As it turns out, it's safe, of course, and an unforgettable experience, as you would expect. Repeat Traveller provides a very interesting and detailed account of the whole experience. One of our daring someday trippers, the one who also lived in Vanuatu, also did the dive 14 years ago and still can't believe she did it and was heartened to know that they're still operating with accolades.
