Barefoot Kuata, Introductory Dive with Reef Sharks
The beautiful island of Kuata, the gateway to the Yasawa Islands is accessible by Awesome Adventures Fiji on their fast speed catamaran the Yasawa Flyer II. A spectacular two hour cruise that departs from Denarau Marina every morning at 0845. You will arrive at Barefoot Kuata which is unmistakable with it`s white beaches, huge volcanic mountains and the famous Phantom Rock caves. You will be welcomed on the beach by singing and grinning locals who will guide you to the day centre for a brief on the day’s action.
During your welcome briefing you will be advised by your Dive Crew as to what time you will depart the resort to your dive site that will give you an experience never to be forgotten.
Meet your Dive Instructor at your scheduled time and during your briefing you will complete your medical and assessment form. During this time you will be given a safety briefing and fitted with all of your dive equipment. Now for the fun stuff – board the dive boat for a 20 minute ride to Moiya Reef home of the White Tip and Black Tip Reef Sharks.
Once you arrive at Moiya Reef your instructor will guide you slowly to our beautiful reef. You will start with your instructor holding your hand and will continue this as long as you need to feel comfortable. If you are a bit nervous they will hold your hand for the entire dive.
When and if you are feeling comfortable the instructor will give you more freedom while staying nice and close. The general depth of an introductory dive will range between one and six meters. Our staff are famously patient and will give you a magnificent experience.
We don’t guarantee guests will see reef shark sighting however we haven’t been disappointed yet.
*Please Note that all introductory dives are subject to participants filling out a medical form. There are some medical conditions that are not compatible with diving. There should be a twelve hour gap between doing this dive and boarding a commercial aircraft.
You will be on the island for about five hours and will have time to swim in the pools, snorkel, kayak, SUP, go for a bush walk or perhaps buy some souvenirs from the shell market or the many other activities. A freshly cooked buffet lunch will take up some of your time and can be washed down with an ice cold beer or cocktail from the bar. The local Fijian staff are very proud of their island paradise and will warm your hearts with genuine hospitality. Sadly the boat will pick you up for a return to Denarau Marina approximately 3:45pm.
