This exciting Wilderness and Travel Medicine course takes place in the secluded Fiji Island Paradise of Beqa (pronounced "Benga"). Surrounded by one of the world's largest and most spectacular barrier reefs, Beqa is rich and untouched.

Beqa lagoon is actually an extinct volcano crater, and the 40-mile ring reef has formed on the lip of the old crater. It is home to one of the greatest displays of soft corals and sea fans in the world. Fiji is often called the "Soft Coral Capital of the World".

Diving these calm protected waters is like exploring another world. The water is clear and warm, visibility is often over 100 feet, currents are generally mild, and the water temperature stays near a fairly constant 80 degrees.

The excellent dive staff at Beqa Lagoon Resort will help you discover the incredible marine life that abounds in these waters - fantastic coral and invertebrates, Blue Ribbon Eels, Clown Triggers, Lion Fish, Leaf Scorpions, Reef Sharks and millions of colorful Anthias and Fusiliers.

Behind the Beqa Lagoon resort the land slopes gently upward into a tropical forest. Nearby are beautiful fresh water streams and waterfalls. Tropical flowers bloom everywhere, and the tables at the resort are always filled with fresh cuttings.

World-class surfing nearby! "Voted one of the best two waves in Fiji." Powerful and fast (with prevailing offshore winds), Frigate Passage (also known as the Fiji "Pipeline") is located on the southwestern barrier reef of the island of Beqa, just a short distance from Beqa Lagoon Resort. Frigate Passage offers the ideal conditions that naturally generate world-class waves.

Testimonials From Your Colleagues

"Shark Reef in Beqa Lagoon is rated as the best shark dive in the world, and we would have to agree, it was amazing! A dive at shark reef is unforgettable ... Divers are lined up behind a (natural) rock wall and watch as schools of massive trevally, bass, rainbow runners, massive groupers, and surgeonfish are fed fish scraps out of a large bin... Nurse sharks, lemon sharks, silver tip sharks, bull sharks, and occasional tiger sharks turn up to this feed....Up to 40 bull sharks can appear at times"
