We stayed at Bega Lagoon the first 5 days. Bega Lagoon was a great place with wonderful staff. Meals were good, the beds were very good, the rooms were cleaned daily. The dive staff was good, the boat we had was great, but not real great for cameras, no dedicated place for them. None of our group had any problems with our cameras but we were very watchful. The diving at Bega was not as great as I had hoped. A lot of dead coral, vis not the best and we dove some of the dive sites more then once. I went to see the Soft Coral Capital of the world and hoped this really wasn't it. As with any place I have been there are always good things you run across, healthy spots and an occasional white tip shark. We did do the famed shark dive, no Tiger sharks but lots of Bull sharks. Not the best environment for taking photos but I knew that going in, I did get a couple I liked.
Our next 7 days were on the liveaboard Nai'a. Truly an awesome experience. The boat was great, the staff was even better. The food and staterooms were great. The Dive staff went above and beyond any expectations. And the diving was out of this world, truly this was what was meant by Fiji being the soft capital of the world. The colors were amazing, the fish life big and small were amazing lots of sharks, some of our group saw Hammer Heads. We rarely saw another boat while we were out. Over all I would recommend this charter to most anyone.
