What to see

There are several different species of shark which frequent Shark Reef and will show up during shark feeding dives. These include whitetip sharks, blacktip sharks, nurse sharks, grey reef sharks, lemon sharks, silvertip sharks, bull sharks and monstrous tiger sharks. Shark sightings are pretty much guaranteed although during the end of the year, you might not see bull sharks which venture off for mating season. For tiger sharks, they appear in the most frequency during June to August.

Other than sharks, expect to find eagle rays and manta rays along channels and passes round Rakiraki and Beqa Lagoon. Along with these, there are the usual reef dwellers which include large groupers, humphead wrasse, colorful reef fish, octopus, crabs and lion fish. Schooling fish that appear in great numbers off Viti Levu are usually barracuda and if lucky, you might spot game fish like marlin or mackerel while diving.
