Tel: 679 345 0911's insider take:

The Shark Reef Marine Reserve is rated among the best shark dives in the world. They guarantee you will see up to eight species of sharks, including bull, tiger, nurse, lemon, silvertips, whitetip reef, grey reef, and blacktip reef, all just a 15-minute trip offshore from Pacific Harbour in their 30 foot dive boat, aptly named "Predator". Their selling point is that their shark feeders are from the Beqa villages that have an ancestral covenant with the Shark God "Dakuwanga", and they certainly seem to run a respectful and friendly operation. Actually, you get two shark dives: the first is in "The Arena" off the steep ledge of Beqa Passage where the big fish hang-out. Next you head to "The Den" to see the smaller sharks and over 300 species of tropical fish. The whole excursion is about two hours, with about an hour in the water, and the other in transport on the boat, where they provide much-appreciated warm towels, snacks, and drinks.

Trips on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday beginning at 8:30 am.
