- Pacific Harbour – One of the top-best site for shark diving is the Pacific Harbour. This site is quite popular to witness bull tiger sharks. The surrounding area around the Pacific Harbour is protected by Marine Reserve. If you wish to dive, then you will need to pay in the form of levy. This levy is then paid to the local village encouraging them not to fish. This practice has increased the shark numbers as well as kept them in good condition.
- The Great Astrolabe Reef – Located on the Kadavu Island, the reef offers a great opportunity to witness reef and hammerhead sharks. Remember to visit this spot during July and August for the best experience.
