Thanks heaps, Tina – September, 2014
All the dives were fantastic and the shark feeding dive was totally on top of that. Thank you very much!

Not only is the staff open-hearted and energetic, but the diving is world class, the business efficient and a genuine promotion of conservation through eco-tourism.

Gracias, Jorge y Sandra – June, 2014
To the BAD team, a great thanks for your professional, safe, unique service which you have provided me over the last weeks of fiving. You have allowed me to capture images which i could never reproduce elsewhere. I again thank you for looking after me and I will be back soon, for more of The Best Shark Dive in the World!!
Mark Gray, Sydney Australia – June, 2014
There are no words to describe it… it must be seen. That must be why we keep coming back every year. Home away from home.
Vinaka, Taryn – May, 2014
Though I’m partial to ‘my’ white sharks at Guadalupe, I can’t argue with BAD’s ‘ Best Shark Dive in the World”. Thank you for a wonderful experience. You once again delivered! Awesome sharks, staff and cookies on the surface interval. I’ll be back next may.
Martin Graf, CEO Shark Diver – May, 2014
Fantastic dives and variety of life. Great team and very friendly. Shark dive was immense but the coral dives are also fantastic. Thank you!
Sonil Chodha – April, 2014
Another awesome dive at SRMR! It is safe to say these were the biggest bull sharks I have seen, even if they say they are bigger back home in South Africa!! Thanks to the teams, it was great! I will definitely be back.
Mark Bond, Cape Town – April, 2014
Fourth time and still the best dive in the world. Nice to see so many sharks with their fins still on and providing such a wonderful community benefit.
Vinaka, Demain Chapman – March, 2014
Mike and the team! Awesome fun dives. Easily one of the best if not the Best Shark Dive in the World. But more importantly – the flow on effect of this operation into the local communities is brilliant! Congrats.
Mike Bhana, Wild Film – March, 2014
I have spent most of my short/young shark career finding the best spots to document and learn about sharks. There is no doubt in my mind that this establishment is the apex predator of the shark industry. As a scientist the work here is productive, clinical and effective. As a presenter, it was catered for amazingly with professionalism better than I have ever seen. As a shark enthusiast it is simply the best I have ever seen. Built for the right reasons, in the right way, Beqa Shark Reef is amazing.
Riley Elliott – March, 2014
Great shark dive – better than sex!!
Adam J Spater, Anchorage Alaska – 2014
Bula and thanks to everyone at Beqa Adventure Divers! This is the best possible place to get open water dive ticket! Shark dive was utterly amazing. Coral dive was incredibly beautiful. Seven Sisters was spectacular! Thanks so much.

Awesome – thank you for a fantastic shark dive experience! Forgot how good it was! The team were great too.
Vinaka Vaka Levu, Rosi and Barry, Devon UK – January, 2014
Thank you BAD! 170 dives all over the world and these were some of my favourites!
Jeff Long – December, 2013
Did the coral dive and it was amazing! I’ve never seen so many Nudie Branchs in one dive before. The shark dive was even better though – absolutely AMAZING. It’s a must if you’re in Fiji!! Excellent service from the team and staff!!
Baard, Norway – November, 2013
Had a great dive. Felt very safe considering all the huge sharks. The staff made the dive as much as the sharks.
Cheers, Sean M – November, 2013
It was very fun! I like sharks.
Lara Henry, Steamboat Springs, Colorado – October, 2013

Its a huge pleasure to meet you all and be involved (if only for a few days) in your great work. See you again soon!
All best wishes, Helen (Scales) from BBC & Seamonster blog – June, 2013

From fear to fascination, this WAS THE Shark Dive for me. Up close and personal, I grew to respect, admire and maybe, just maybe, love these predators of the deep.
Nina Zippy – 2013
More than my expectations of professionalism for safety and fun offered by BAD. The divers are very relaxing and helped with the staffs. Truly amazing experience and look forward to doing it again in future.
Vinaka! Novatus, Borneo, Indonesia – January 2013

Jamie White – 2012
Many thanks for the fantastic dives! BAD is such a well run operation – from the comprehensive briefings to emphasise on safety to overall organisation – all while maintaining a fun atmosphere. You guys are true professionals. Also, so impressed with your leadership on shark conservation – you truly set a great example for responsible eco-tourism. And… the shark diving experience is as good as it gets. What an amazing experience!!
Mark Strickland, USA

Michael and Nikole Adkins, Sasebo, Japan and Dallas, Texas. YE HAW!
VINAKA for one of the best dives of my life. Viva Mexico!
Many Claim to be ‘the best’ but few prove it, daily. BAD does that!! You combine adventure, action, safety AND conservation; heaven is likely similar.
With respect and gratitude, Sam “Tropical Selkie”
It does not get better than this. I will never get tired of your sharks in my face.
Vinaka Vaka Levu. David Fleetham!

Nancy Sealover 🙂 (but I think I’m a SHARKLOVER now)
Very well run operation – very professional. We really enjoyed our dives. Good crew!
Rich Lesperance, Georgia USA
There are no real words for my thoughts on BAD Divers here. Perfection comes to mind. The magic you all have created here has no worldly equal. Thank you for allowing me to visit your waters, your sharks and the beautiful Fijians that have made this place special. It is an honour and a privilege….
Thank you, this truly is The Worlds Greatest Shark Dive!!!
Eli Martinez, Shark Diver Magazine
My dives with the bull sharks were some of the most incredible shark dives I have had, and I have been diving with sharks for many years! The dive masters and shark feeders are total pros and super divers. This dive is a sure way to turn people into Shark fans and it will help change the bad rap bull sharks generally get, I was amazed to see the behaviour of the animals towards the feeders, and the divers, and ever towards myself. I can’t wait to come back soon to visit the shark arena many more times.
Stefanie Bredl – June, 2012
Excellent. A unique experience. A great team, organised and professional. I hope to do this again one day.
Damian Grimm – Whyalla, South Australia – June, 2012
Thank you for letting Broadreach experience your incredible Shark Dive. What you are doing for Shark Conservation and Fiji is truly remarkable. You have inspired us all to continue work protecting sharks. Hopefully we will come back to dive with BAD!
Broadreach Shark Studies 2012
Vinaka!! We had an AMAZING TIME diving with you! Wananavu!
Love from Broadreach – June, 2012
As a marine ecologist with over 30 years diving experience, I can honestly say I have never been so transfixed on a dive. What absolutely MAGNIFICENT animals are the bull sharks. And the knowledge ad care of the dive masters is impressive. What a wonderful way to help people appreciated sharks. Thank you, Thank you.
Professor Jessica Meeuwig, Perth Australia.
For so many years I have been diving worldwide. But Fiji Bullsharks and Reefs are amazing. The same is for the staff. My compliments for this very good running organisation.
Thank you so much, you guys are amazing! Beautiful Sunshine. Beautiful people. Beautiful Fiji!! The ocean is just like the movie “Finding Nemo”!! You guys are the best!!
🙂 Kenix and Frankie – April, 2012
We never imagined we would ever come so close to such enormous Bull Sharks, not to mention the beautiful nurse sharks. Our perception of sharks has changed forever. Vinaka Vaka Levu.
Nick and Jenny – March, 2012

Alex, Dive Instructor, Sydney
YAY BULL SHARKS!!!! Thanks so much!
This is my third visit since 2007 and the success of the conservation project is plains to see. It is sometimes hard to see the sharks for the other fish!! We divers have the immense privilege to see this awesome but beautiful spectacle thanks to the visionaries who promoted the project some 10 years ago (see poster in dive shop kitchen corridor). Thanks too, and enormous congratulations to all in the BAD team, past and present, for us this privilege.
Mel Cumming, Scotland UK – February, 2012
Perfect experience. Amazing control of the massive sharks. Friendly staff. Outstanding safety. A memory for life.
Thank you, Nike (Indonesia) and Elio (Colombia) – February, 2012
It is like coming home! For 8 years I have had the privilege of being allowed to share your sharks, your passion for the ocean and your friendships. For that gift, I thank you! I am so proud to see how BAD has grown and matured into the “Best Shark Experience in the World!” All of you are indeed ‘AMAZING’.
Until we dive again… Vinaka!
With love, Gary Adkison.
Shark Foundation, USA
Amazing staff and incredible diving! I couldn’t be happier that I was able to do my certification here and dive with the amazing staff. We had the most amazing time and we will definitely be back. Thank you to Jone, Louis, Andrew, Princess and all the incredible staff that made this possible.
Mark and Morgan – January, 2012
My wife, Olivia, and I came here for our honeymoon. The dives were great and it was my first time trying the cave diving. Went into the sunk vessel and the cave really gave me some amazing feeling, although it started up with some panic at the beginning. Both of us enjoyed it alot and we are planning our next trip here to see the sharks show, which we could not watch due to BAD being fully booked!
Olivia and Patrick, Hong Kong – December, 2011
Thanks everyone that was awesome. Shark Dive and Reef Dive. Thanks very much. The number one Shark Experience in the World!!
Tyler – December, 2011
Absolutely INCREDIBLE dives, absolutely wonderful crew. Thanks so much, we really enjoyed it. Bula! Vinaka! The first RABBI that ever did the Shark Dive!!!

You guys at BAD are BAD! Thanks for the great time.
Jim Rock – September, 2011
To all the BAD boys, Nani, Mike and Andrew. Thank you so much for putting up with me for the past two month. The sharks have been ‘wananavu’, but it’s been the people who have made my time here so special! Mike, thanks you for giving me the opportunity to dive with the sharks for 2 months – 75 dives done and it’s never gotten boring! So much can be learnt from what you have here, I just hope Juerg and I’s work can reflect that. To the guys, a lone female could have felt pretty intimidated amongst all you lot but it has been a pleasure getting to know you all. Each one of you has made me feel so welcome! It’s been fun – even on the cold, wet, windy days (I’ll bring three wet suits next time!). To Nani, there can never be enough thank yous’ said. I felt accepted into your home from day one. I will miss you, but I am leaving having gained a special friend. Andrew, please take this as my notice of resignation of ‘toilet paper girl’. I just hope you can fill the position quickly! Anyhoo, I will take home a lot of great memories, look after eachother. I will miss all of you. See you later (Trusup!)
Bula! Thank you for a wonderful time. We enjoyed our trip – very memorable 🙂 We’d love to come back, hopefully soon enough. Keep up the good conservation work and “Terima Kasin” again from Malaysia!
Hello to the BAD team! Thanks for a wonderful dive experience and most all for taking such good care of us, and the Sharks. Papa’s story is worth a hundred fire side takes – You Rock, Papa! The most memorable was the Nurse Shark experience where its the first time I’ve ever seen sharks bed for food or look into the wheelie bin for scraps! Naughty Nurses! Remembering the Hunter and Predator Dive Teams.
Not just a great dive operation but also a fantastic conservation project! What Mike and his crew are doing here is a very good example of how tourism and conservation can go well together. All the best and thank you very much for having me here and share your ideas.
To Mike and Staff, What a great experience, a wonderful marriage of biology, eco-tourism and conservation mixed together to make for great outcomes for people and sharks! All the best.
Thank you! We had a lot of FUN! Hopefully we will be back someday. Ciao.
Natalia and Danilo, Italy – August, 2011
Bula BAD BOYS! I can’ thank you all enough for your efforts this last month. This has been a dream come true for me and to spend it with you all has been an enormous privilege and honour. You guys are truly the best there is and I wish you all the greatest success and health for the future. You are all a massive asset to Fiji and to Sharks. I love you guys!! PS. I’ll be back!!!
David Diley, officetoocean.blogspot.com
Bula! I’ve had the BEST TIME!! Thank you all so much for all your help and support. We could not do it without you. We love you all!!
Bula! To all the BAD boys and girls. Heartfelt thanks for a very special month! Your individual efforts to make us feel welcome, safe and able to move and film amongst you have been appreciated so much. Brothers and Sisters, remember us fondly and know that we will remember you always in our hearts. Your talents and wonderful smiling faces will of course be in a film that you are a HUGE part of! Be happy, stay safe and remember Django Reindhart could play the guitar perfectly well with only two fingers! Vinaka.
Hamish Harper – August, 2011
We were here in March 2009 – and had such a good time we came back!!! Once again, an awesome experience. The sharks were so great. Your conservation efforts are to be admired, as well as the teams professionalism and friendliness. Sivo, we gave you two lifts home, but no Tiger Shark – “What the!?!”. Well, I guess we keep coming back to see the Tigers!
Gail and Russel, Mackay QLD Australia – August, 2011
Dear Beqa Adventure Divers, We, the Broadreach kids, would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to each and every one of you. Beqa Adventure Divers has greatly influenced all of our lives in a fantastic way. Every dive the excellent dive masters would take care of us, whether it was through mountains of soft coral or in the face of feeding bull sharks. Even though sometimes we were clueless you guys showed us the way and gave us an experience we will never forget. We would also like to thanks Andrew for speaking to us about the ecotourism, it was really interesting to learn about how this incredible dive adventure came to be. Also, thanks you Mike for all you have done for Shark Reef and for us, you impact in Shark Conservation is phenomenal. Arthur, thanks for being an awesome Marine Biologist and maintaining the database. Tumbi, Fabi, Bill, Wili, Wati, Sivo, Lui, Silio, Manasa and Eliki, thanks for showing us the underwater world and keeping us safe through it all. You showed us sea cucumbers, rays, slugs, seahorses, and sharks and we are so grateful to all of you for making our trip the wonderful experience it is. Netani and Wati, thanks for being amazing boat drivers and taking us to the beautiful places we enjoyed so much. Nani, thank you for making us those delicious lunches and managing the office of the greatest dive operation in the WORLD! We will miss all of you so much, we really appreciate you guys welcoming us to your country, making us feel at home and with your kindness and guidance changing our lives for the better. We will remember everything you taught us about diving, conservation and the Fijian Spirit.
Love, The Broadreach Group.
Dear BAD team, We can’t thank you enough for all you have done for us the past two months. Diving with the Sharks at SRMR has been an incredible and unforgettable experience. Equally unforgettable is your smiles, kindness and professionalism. This is most definitely the BEST Shark Dive in the World and a fantastic example of conservation and eco-tourism. It’s been an exceptional learning opportunity that our students will never forget. Chris and I have only been out of water a few days and we already miss the bold gray reefs, the huge bulls and of course… the incredible Tiger! We’ll greatly miss all of you as well. Vinaka Vaka Levu and Moce.
Chris and Chelsie, Broadreach College Leaders – July, 2011
To Beqa Adventure Divers, This is my third trip to Pacific Harbour to dive with BAD and the Sharks, and this was the best trip by far! The number of sharks and professionalism or the staff are unmatched. What makes BAD my favorite Shark Diving operation is that its staff treats the sharks with respect and the dives take place in a rehearsed, safe and predictable manner. Thanks for the very special opportunities and treating me like family. I’ll be back!
Michael Patrick O’Neill
Thank you crew for fixing my gear when it broke and making me laugh! Good dive! Thank you Fiji!
Arthur and Alexia
Dear Beqa Adventure Divers, On behalf of our Broadreach group, we all want to say a big VINAKA for everything you did for us. Thank you Manasa, Arthur, Rusi, Tumbi and all the Dive Masters for the amazing dives! Another special thank you for making sure we each received shark teeth, and of course plenty of cookies!! Thanks to Andrew and Arthur for taking time out of your schedules to teach us about the Shark Reef Marine Reserve, BAD and Shark Conservation. A HUGE thank you to Nani and the other Dive Masters wives for all the AMAZING food – we are so grateful! Also, thank you Manasa and Tumbi for providing us a magnificent experience on Beqa Island! We all had a TRULY WONDERFUL time and it really was entirely all because of your wonderful kindness and generosity. Thanks again, we hope to see you soon! MOCE!

Lori Bachelor-Smith and the PADI Crew – June, 2010
We have a simple rule – never go back to the same place twice. We broke that rule – this is the most amazing place to see beautiful sharks in a well managed professional environment. The Dive sites are amazing and the Sharks unbelievable and the dive crew first class. Another big thank you and we will be obliged to break our rule again!
Paul and Pamela, Finchampstea UK – May, 2010
Nobody does Shark Dives better or safer. Thanks for all your professionalism and your conversations. See you next year! Vinaka.
Lupo – April, 2010
After four days of diving, I have to say that this has truly been an amazing experience. In particular to watch the feeders have a connection with the sharks and to encounter a sustainable Marine Conservation project that involves the whole community. This is something that should be modeled all over the world. I have nothing but respect for BAD and what they have achieved. See all of you again soon.
Shirley Zhang – April, 2010.
Thank you so much for this week: Amazing, Wonderful I have dreams for all my life! The BAD TEAM is great, welcoming and professional. After five dives – Tiger Shark for me!! Good luck for the future.

WOW! WOW! WOW! Absolutely Amazing… Loads of Sharks and a huge Tiger Shark! Scarface RULES! Thank you so much Dive Team!
Michael Johnson, UK – March, 2010
Mike, Andrew and the crew of BAD. I cannot speak highly enough about this dive and the work done behind the scenes. I only wish that ALL Dive Operators took as much interest in the Ecosystems they derive income from. On a personal note, I leave BAD with loads of sensational pics and memories.
Sam Cahir, UW Photographer – February, 2010
To BAD STAFF – The finest pro’s in the South Pacific, Thank you for a great time. BAD DELIVERS! Sharks, Sharks and Sharks! All shaped and sizes come to Shark Reef, and the staff not only know sharks – the reefs, wrecks and swim-throughs and fish life are outstanding. Thank you for a special time. This may well be the BEST Shark dive the the WORLD!
Tim Rock, Lonely Planet Author – February, 2010
Vinaka! Thank you Mike, Andrew, Nani and all you wonderful folks for the awesome experience.

Cheers, Sarah and Graham, North Carolina USA and South Africa – December, 2009.
Vinaka! What a great opportunity to experience Sharks up close and personal! With such wonderful guides and to top it all – to be a part (be it a small one) in experiencing the research and conservation behind these great animals. The care and love that ALL the staff have towards these threatened species is truly admirable.
Rosie – November, 2009.
Wow – AWESOME!! Easily the best dive of my life. This will be hard to surpass – Close to 20 Bull Sharks on second dive and the crew are spectacular. Vinaka.
Ron, Miami – November, 2009

So…. Along comes Marty Wolff, fresh from swimming with whales in Vava’u. Thought he’d done it all on this trip… NOT! SHARK CITY!! Killer Dive (in the good sense)
Marty Wolff – September, 2009
This was by far the best Shark Diving that I have ever done. It has been a pleasure to meet and dive with the BAD team. Besides the thrill of the Shark Encounters, Beqa Adventure Divers are doing much more – they educate the public about the importance of Shark and Marine Conservation and the help the local villages with funds collected. Keep up the great work guys. May Dakuwaqa always look out for you. Best wishes and thanks.
Alex, Sharkman – August, 2009
The Shark Dive was the best thing ever. Thanks for everything. All the team were awesome. Louis, Andrew and Lo and all the Shark Gods. Going to have to retire diving now. Nothing will top that!! See you soon.
Lois and Sarah, London England – August, 2009
To the whole team!! You guys were great and helped us get the best shots we needed. Very professional and so easy to dive with you! Please thank the Sharks for us, because they pulled all the best moves for us! Thanks a million.

Manuel – April, 2009
One of the greatest experiences of my life! Simply outstanding. I want the whole world to know about it, and I hope my children come to experience it as well.
Stanley Simpson, Mai Life/Mai TV/Simpson @ 7 – March, 2009
Bula BAD team, Thanks again for making us feel so welcome and a part of the family. As usual, Shark Reef delivered the odds, with more fishes for the total count – 420 and plenty of shark action. You all run a truly professional organisation.
Best of luck, Mahalo, Rob Whitton – February, 2009
Bula BADdies, working in Ichthyology, I only have eyes for fish, but yet I couldn’t help noticing many large grey shapes buzzing around. Impressive, and thanks for keeping them at a respectful distance while I grubbed for gobies…. Of which there are an extraordinary number on Shark Reef. So look down folks!
Aloha and Mahalo, John Earle – February, 2009
Loved the sharks, Bull, Whitetip, Blacktip, silvertip, nurse shark. Also loved the nudibranchs (size doesn’t matter!!) But most of all the crew (our personal body guards!) were the best. Thank you!
Estelle Davies and Martin Lavole, Hong Kong – (Cousteau Naturalists) – January, 2009
Fiji is wonderful of course, but it was a magic experience to be with the diver people of the Harbour. Nice and friendly and very experimented. What a pleasure. Thanks you so much for a unique experience.
Maggy et Jean Luc, French/California – December, 2008
I had a great time, thank you guys for taking care of the very scared Singapore girls.
Michelle Kim – November, 2008
Unreal, wicked, insane. The sharks were way cool.
Bec, Australia – November, 2008
So glad to be certified as Open Water Diver here and with you folks rather than in some cold, murky water in Pennsylvania. Amazing reefs and sea life and such blue water. Petero is a fantastic instructor but everyone at Beqa Adventure Divers has been great. Vinaka Vaka Levu!

Manasa, Andrew and all of the crew, Thank You very much for some great dives. But also for all your efforts to help us protect and conserve our graceful sharks!

A very big Thank You to all the staff of BAD. Excellent and unique diving with very professional staff – the sharks truly are awesome. I could recommend the shark dive to anyone visiting Fiji – it instantly dispels the myth that sharks are aggressive cold blooded killers and allows a full appreciation of their grace and power. Best of all, its great to see how the dive operation is protecting the reef and all its fish – this is a really fantastic example of conservation is action and I congratulate all of the people of BAD and the villages of Galoa and Wainiyabia for making it happen.
Jonathon Clay, BBC – April, 2008
The best, the very best of Shark Diving.
Valerie Taylor, Diving Legend
Unquestionably one of the best Shark Dives in the World and among the very best experiences I’ve had underwater in over 10,000 dives.
Mark Strickland, UW Photographer
The best Shark Dive Team in the World, the best experience ever.

We have dove all over the World and we have not had a more fun, professional and safe experience than with Beqa Adventure Divers.
Valerie and Dan, USA
Seeing the sharks is bound to be an attitude-altering revelation.
Doug Perrine, UW Photographer and Author
The best dive I’ve ever done.
On one dive you will see more species of sharks than the average diver sees in a lifetime.
Howard Hall, UW Cinematographer
Having dived around the world, this was the best, without doubt.
It was really “BAD”!
John Bantin, DIVE magazine
What can we say – the most amazing experience we’ve ever had.
Nikki and Spence, UK
The health of the Shark Reef Marine Reserve reef may be the result of four years of good stewardship. The 381 fish species recorded during a brief window of time in a limited area is an impressive number and indicative of a rich and diverse fish fauna. The shark population at SRMR would appear to be supported by a solid foundation at lower trophic levels.
John Earle, Research Associate, Bishop Museum, Hawaii
Profitez-en, vous avez la chance de votre vie devant vous.
Thank you for the best dive ever.
WOW! This is impossible to beat!
Fabulous Shark Diving and the best model for eco-tourism that I have found anywhere in all my Shark travels.
Rob Allen, Shark Safaris and Shark Trust
You are the classiest and most professional I’ve seen in Fiji!

Concerning Shark encounters, Shark Reef is probably the best in the world, especially for jumbo bull sharks.
Michael O’Neill, UW Photographer and Author
Wow!! The crew is top notch, best in the business. The shark experience is truly the world’s best big fish encounter.
You can get a week’s worth of Shark photography done in one dive here.

We’ve seen Sharks all over the world and you guys are the tops.
Absolutely the best Shark Dive in the World + the best Shark Dive Team.
