New ‘Snorkel With Sharks’ Experience To Launch In Fiji On 1 April

March 30, 2015 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Fiji’s South Sea Cruises will launch a brand new series of ‘Ultimate Encounters’ packages on 1 April, centering around a snorkelling with sharks experience.The 1, 2 or 3 day experiences will transfer curious travellers from Port Denarau on Fiji’s mainland to Kuata Island in the Yasawa Island group to snorkel with Black Tip and White Tip Reef Sharks up to approx. 1.8m long.
South Sea Cruises Sales Manager Lailanie Burnes said this was an exciting new product offering that would appeal to a range of adventure seekers.
“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” Ms Burnes said.
“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,” she said.

“White Tip Reef Sharks are the dominant species and are by nature inquisitive and won’t be afraid to check out our guests; whereas Black Tips are by contrast timid,”
“Our guests will snorkel with experienced guides who‘ve spent hundreds of hours getting to know the resident sharks and who closely monitor shark behaviour to ensure our guests’ safety,”
“Snorkellers can expect to see from one to six sharks in the hour they’re in the water and while it’s unlikely that they’ll remember to look anywhere else, there are also spectacular corals at this snorkelling location!”
If no sharks are sighted, South Sea Cruises will offer a complimentary cruise within 3 days so guests can try again.
Kuata Island itself is a hidden small gem in the Yasawa Island archipelago, a two hour scenic cruise from Port Denarau.
A picture postcard beach, transparent turquoise waters, unusual tall rock formations and that same warm hospitality synonymous with Fijian people.
There’s small rustic accommodation offering a Robinson Crusoe style experience at Barefoot Kuata Island Resort where the snorkelling with sharks experience is based from.
South Sea Cruises will offer three packages commencing 1 April 2015:
1.  Day cruise departing Port Denarau 8:30am; returning 5:45pm including two course lunch, use of the resort facilities and snorkelling with sharks $299 FJD pp ($188 AUD pp/$107 AUD pp child)
