There are four options for your Beqa Island Sea Kayak Tour, the only variation being the arrangements for getting to and from the local activity operator’s office in Pacific Harbour.
The four options are:
• Nadi Area: Hotel pick up & drop-off included
• Coral Coast or Suva: Hotel pick up & drop-off included
• Intercontinental Resort: Hotel pick up & drop-off included
• Pacific Harbour: No hotel pick-up or drop-off. Make your way to the local activity operator’s office in Pacific Harbour, in the grounds of the Pearl South Pacific Resort.
You will board a private chartered boat at Pacific Harbour and sail across the Beqa Passage to Beqa Island. As you near Beqa – the island of Fiji’s famed fire walkers – quaint seaside villages and the steep volcanic cliffs of Malumu Bay come into view. In the protected waters of a sheltered bay, your guide will provide a brief orientation to the kayaks and equipment you’ll be using before you paddle off in search of fun and adventure.
You will paddle into Malumu Bay where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of your surroundings. Your guide will also show you a fruit bat colony – an amazing sight with hundreds of fruit bats clinging to the trees. Depending on the state of the tide, you will explore a mangrove passage and arrive on a calm white beach for lunch.
Lunch will consist of a deli-spread of cold cuts (meats), cheeses, seasonably fresh vegetables, fruits, fresh bread and rolls, assorted cookies and other condiments. Juice and water are also available. As you relax over the picnic you will see magnificent views over towards Kadavu Island.
After lunch you can swim or snorkel the fantastic reefs of this amazing southern shore. Board your boat for the return journey through the Beqa Lagoon and across Beqa Passage. Watch for pilot whales, dolphins and the mountains of Namosi.
Depending on the timing of the trip and the state of the tide you will enjoy either a morning or an afternoon snack during the tour.
You will leave the boat at Pacific Harbour. For guests from Pacific Harbour the tour ends at the tour operator’s office. Other guests will be dropped back at their hotels.
