Barefoot Kuata Island - Fiji Dive Resorts - Dive Discovery Fiji Islands

Somewhere between the end of the earth and the beginning of heaven is a little slice of paradise that we call home. It is along this unspoiled stretch of beach forming the gateway to the Yasawas, that we built Kuata Islands eco-lodge – Barefoot Kuata Resort. Not only are the beaches ideal for lazing about and swimming but the reef is also home to friendly white-tipped reef sharks that make for an unforgettable snorkelling experience.

From easy coral reef dives to the extraordinary bull shark dive we think we have an excellent choice of dives. Throw in some caves, walls and night dives and your options are unlimited. Despite the range of dives available the thing that sets us apart is the opportunity for certified divers to dive and learn from our dive team which is made up of very experienced local divers and marine biologists. All of our staff are committed to our conservation projects and love sharing their knowledge with guests.

If you are newly certified this is a perfect place to start your new journey into learning about magic of coral reefs. If you are an old hand we promise to re awaken your senses and help you develop a new passion for the world you love.

We also love to explore. We are surrounded by miles of unseen coral reefs and like nothing better than to take divers somewhere we know humans have never laid eyes. The worst it can be is beautiful. If this appeals to you please let us know.

Certified divers will be required to fill out a medical form prior to diving. Please don`t forget to bring evidence of certification and remember the rules about flying after diving. It`s also good to check your diving insurance with DAN before you come.

Snorkelling with Sharks

The Snorkelling with Sharks day trip option will take you to our spectacular Mouira reef, home of the reef sharks. After being fitted with some snorkelling equipment a fifteen-minute boat ride will take you to the crystal clear waters of our destination.

A safety brief is all that separates you from an extraordinary experience. These sharks are spectacular and majestic and not the kind that very occasionally bite people. The Whitetip and Blacktip reef sharks are like the poodles of the shark world. They are stunningly graceful creatures and will change your perception about sharks forever.

Our Marine science team will happily talk you through any information you would like about these animals. After another short boat ride you will be back to the island in time for lunch.
