Departing Port Denarau, you’ll board our high-speed catamaran and travel through the Mamanuca Islands bound for Barefoot Kuata Island Resort in the southern Yasawa Islands. This resort boasts a picture-perfect beach, transparent turquoise waters, unusual rock formations and warm hospitality.

Shark Snorkelling Following a beachfront safety briefing with your experienced guides who’ve spent hundreds of hours getting to know the resident school of sharks, you’ll board a boat with your guides and travel to the reef shark site. The guides will be in the water with you the entire time and will closely monitor the shark’s behaviour to ensure your safety. The water depth at the snorkelling site varies between 4 and 6 metres and if you are not a confident swimmer, life jackets are available.

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. They can grow to a length of up to 1.8 metres although under the water they appear 25% larger due to a snorkelling face mask’s optical illusion. The number of sharks you will encounter will vary but it is common to see multiple sharks. As sharks are wild animals we cannot guarantee sightings, however we have a 95%+ success rate of seeing them.

If you are travelling with someone who does not want to participate in the shark snorkelling, they can just book a Barefoot Kuata Island Resort day trip and enjoy time on the island while you go snorkelling.

Other Activities For the remainder of the day, enjoy lunch and make use of the facilities at Barefoot Kuata Island Resort which offers swimming pools, great snorkelling, kayaks and scenic walking tracks.

Food and Drinks A delicious lunch is included in your day trip and drinks can be purchased at the resort. If you require a vegetarian option, please specify in the ‘special requirements’ box when you go through the booking process.

  • One of the best experiences I've had in a long time. The island was beautiful, super friendly staff always ready to help. Snorkeling and kayak equipment were complimentary. The food was great, and the infinity pool was something I'd never experienced. Highly recommended!

    Review of South Sea Island
  • It was an amazing cruise with a delicious lunch and wine. We got to snorkel with colourful fish. We then spent the afternoon island hopping seeing other places we could stay. The Fijian show was excellent. We had a wonderful day.

  • Sabre was an absolute dream experience. The boat is amazing and a real asset for Fiji, the crew were accommodating and fun. There was plenty of seating on the ship. I would recommend it to all. Thank you South Sea Cruise, yet another great trip with your company.
