Take the plunge as we head out into the ocean, speeding through the water on our boat before diving into the shallow turquoise waters of our breathtaking reef, where we come face to face with the incredible Black Tip and White Tip Reef Sharks. Suitable for beginners and experts alike, this amazing snorkelling adventure is the perfect way to enjoy Fiji’s famous coral reefs and encounter one of mankind’s deadliest creatures. We provide expert guides, inclusive safety briefings and buoyancy aids for not-so-confident swimmers, as well as the option to watch from the boat if you don’t fancy the idea of diving under the waves. 


See up to six sharks as we snorkel through the water, exploring the colourful reef and watching the Reef Sharks from a distance. The inquisitive White Tips may come in for a closer look, but our professional and experienced guides will monitor their behaviour and ensure that your safety is paramount. On the unlikely occasion that you may not encounter any sharks, we will offer a complimentary snorkel cruise within 3 days of your original booking. If poor weather and sea conditions hamper our abilities to snorkel with the sharks, we will offer an incredible underwater snorkelling safari as an alternative adventure.


Enjoy the rest of your time here on breathtaking Kuata Experience basking in the sunshine, getting to know our amazing Fijian staff and visiting their local village on a nearby island, exploring the unique and unusual rock formations, kayaking through the ocean, jungle trekking and lazing about in a hammock with a fruity cocktail before this amazing adventure comes to an end with a complimentary transfer on the Yasawa Flyer back to Nadi or Denarau.

Yes. You’ll be provided with safety instruction from our experienced guides who’ve spent hundreds of hours getting to know our resident school of sharks. Our guides will be in the water with you the entire time and will closely monitor the sharks behaviour to ensure your safety.


There are two main species of sharks encountered, White Tip Reef Sharks and Black Tip Reef Sharks, both are common in the tropical warm waters of the South Pacific. Each species can grow to a length of just over 1.5 metres although under the water they appear 25% larger, a snorkelling face mask optical illusion. White Tips are the dominant species and are by nature an inquisitive shark not frightened to check you out. Their Black Tip relatives are by contrast timid and will shy away if they feel threatened.


Numbers vary but it is common to see up to six sharks.


Both Black Tip and White Tip Reef Sharks prefer shallower waters making snorkelling easy with good visibility. It’s even possible to see the sharks from our boat before entering the water. Water depth varies between 4 - 6 metres depending on the tide.


Buoyancy aids are available for less confident swimmers and because these sharks prefer shallow waters there’s no necessity to dive under the water to secure a thrilling view. Non-snorkellers can join the experience but sit out the snorkelling experience.
