Barefoot Kuata - Ultimate Encounters Snorkel with Sharks: You’ll cruise through the Mamanuca Islands and then onto the stunning more isolated Yasawas Islands, here you’ll disembark at Kuata Island, the closest of the Yasawa Islands to Nadi. Kuata Island is a hidden small gem in the Yasawa Island archipelago.
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 on Kuata Island offering a Robinson Crusoe style experience with the comforts of a restaurant, bar, hammocks and even a swimming pool! Following your briefing on the Kuata Island beachfront you’ll board a boat together with your guides and travel to our snorkelling with sharks reef site. Departure time varies depending on tidal and sea conditions.
You won’t go hungry with morning tea & afternoon tea and lunch all served on Kuata Island. For the remainder of the day the facilities of Barefoot Kuata are available to you. There’s good snorkelling close to the beachfront, kayaks, walking tracks and even a massage service available at an additional cost. A delicious two course lunch with a vegetarian option is included. T
here 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.
