Shark Snorkel & Two Course Lunch - Barefoot Kuata Island


Experience the ULTIMATE ENCOUNTER and snorkel with sharks in their natural environment – With no cages and only crystal clear water between you and the sharks, this is an adrenalin rush like no other!

Your incredible journey begins when we transfer you from your Nadi or Denarau accommodation to Denarau Marina to board our luxurious high speed catamaran the ‘Yasawa Flyer’.

Sit back and relax on our comfortable observation decks as we cruise through the idyllic Mamanuca Islands and head towards the stunning more isolated Yasawa Islands.

Upon disembarking at the paradise-like Kuata Island, your experienced guides will provide a safety briefing before they enter the water with you to get up close and personal to White and Black Tip Reef Sharks.

See and interact with these magnificent creatures in their natural habit – A once in a lifetime experience that will be the highlight of your Fijian holiday.

Following your shark encounter you can enjoy a delicious two course lunch at the Barefoot Kuata Island restaurant and then reflect upon your day as you sip on a cool beverage on a hammock in paradise.

Incredible Day

Could not believe the moment the boat stopped for us to head into the water that the sharks would be right there and waiting! Had a fabulous time in the water and a lovely lunch and time spent on the Island. We will be coming back again!

Perfect family day out

Awesome family day out! We have two teenage boys who thoroughly enjoyed the experience from the minute we left our Denerau Accomadation. Tour was very organised and I got email reply back in minutes after asking some fine details. The Kuata Island was stunning and the facilities were great. The shark snorkeling was fantastic and definitely a bucket list tick for us. I felt that 30 minutes was just enough time for this. The food was good in the island on our return and catered for everyone. We had a blast . I would recommend to take an underwater camera to the snorkling experience to capture the experience with the beautiful sharks.

Good experience

Overall was nice experience and we saw plenty of reef sharks! Lunch was nice as well with lots of choices. There was no choices for short sided and far sided guests to choose optical goggles. Please prepare your own goggle if you really need that.
