A day cruise operator in Fiji launches one, two, and three day Ultimate Encounters packages, which give adventure travellers, nature lovers, and diving enthusiasts a chance to snorkel with sharks.
South Sea Cruises will launch one, two, and three day Snorkel with Sharks packages, which will give adventure travellers, nature lovers, and diving enthusiasts a chance to snorkel with sharks in the turquoise waters off Fiji.
The cruises will begin on 1 April 2015.
Snorkelers will spend one hour in the water and can expect to see from one to 6 sharks as well as spectacular coral. If no sharks are sighted, South Sea Cruises will offer a complimentary cruise within 3 days so guests can try again.
Snorkeling with Sharks
"Humans have a fascination with sharks and there is no doubt that despite our fear of them that is generally equalled by our curiosity about them," says South Sea Cruises Sales Manager Lailanie Burnes.
"Our snorkelling location is a shallow area of reef (about 4-6m tide dependent) making snorkelling and visibility easy and clear; and makes the experience accessible to a wide range of people – whether serious thrill seekers, families, or just curious nature lovers."
Lunch is included on the one day package. Meals and accommodation at the rustic Barefoot Kuata Island Resort are included on the two and three day packages. Other optional activities are available.
The hotel has dining facilities and an on site dive centre. A swimming pool will open on 1 April 2015.
Kuata Island is a a located in the Yasawa Island Archipelago. It is a 2 hour voyage from Port Denarau.
