Trip in August

Hello. My sister and I are traveling to Fiji for two weeks in August. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do or any information that may be necessary for us to know before traveling. We are going to stay at the Uprising Beach Resort and so far all I have read is Great Reviews! The Zipline is definitely on our list of things to do. What else should we consider as far as activities? Does anyone know if you are able to go through a scuba certification class on the resort or any where near the resort. As for a budget what should we expect? Any info will help! Thanks

All sounds good. Uprising great resort, Zipline... well I',m trying to psych myself to do it, 45 meters above the ground is a long way!! You should be able to do an intro to dive course or a full open water course if not at Uprising at a nearby resort or dive facility. Intro to diving is not that expensive and the full Open water course around F$400-F$500 depending on where you do it.

Pacific Harbour is a great place to stay,the journey from Nadi can take a few hours(you have a choice private car or the bus and the price does vary dramatically, Coral Sun can organise either for you and the prices are available on their website.) We stayed at the Pearl previously and are returning there in July this year.The Diving is 1st class at Aquatrek as are Brandon and his team(www.Aquatrek.com and just look at the Beqa link for more details),they are extremely welcoming and really make a difference in all they do.

The Shark dive is truly amazing and an unforgettable experience as well,there are also a number of other dive sites close by,that will wet your appetite for the undersea world too.

staying in Pacific Harbour for two weeks you should consider two or three days on Beqa Island. You will see Beqa Island from Uprising Beach Resort

have a look at this place

Hi We were in Fiji a few weeks ago and had a ball.

Would highly recommend the zipline.

I am scare of heights and at first it was quiet scary, but by the second time around the course I loved it.

It's safe as houses.

Uprising has an on-site water sports company called Sublime with a variety of water activities available. The jet ski looked liked a great thing to do but unfortunately, I ran outta time to do it.....definitely next trip ;)

Pacific Harbour is known to be Fiji's adventure capital so there must be lots to do around there & yep, zip lining was a lot of fun....whhheeeeeeeeeee!!!!

Have a great time at Uprising.

Just thought to add a direct link to AquaTrek Beqa,it is worth browsing the website as it contains all interesting facts,figures and also costs,they will do Scuba Certification too, and what a place to learn in, we are back there in 2 weeks and can't wait,hope you really enjoy it .It is worth emailing ahead and booking yourselves in for the diving as it is popular there. http://aquatrek.com/

Bula (as they say in Fiji)

I highly recommend Aqua-Trek Beqa to complete your diving course. The dive instructor - Pedro is one of the most experienced in Fiji and you will surely enjoy his jokes. Very professional, safe and fun.

Add extra days to do the shark dive with Pedro - this is the best dive in the world.
