Hello fellow divers and thank you in advance for any and allhelp you can offer to my wife and I about an upcoming trip to Fiji in May ofthis year. My wife and I are traveling to Fiji May 5[SUP]th[/SUP] toMay 20[SUP]th[/SUP] and are staying at Naigani Resort for the first 12 days andthen we are relocating to the Uprising Resort for the last 4 days to allow usto do the Shark Dive with Beqa Adventure Divers. Any thoughts about these dive operators? While we are seasoned travelers and have traveledextensively to the Caribbean for dive trips though there is something a littleintimidating about traveling that long and that far for a dive vacation,although from what I understand it will be well worth the trouble. So on tosome questions: We are arriving at Nadi Airport and need to make our way tothe Nassouri Jetty to meet the boat to take us to Naigani. We have read aboutthe several ways to make this journey but wanted to hear it from divers as weare taking all of our own gear it seems to me that hauling two 50-pound duffelsacross the island on a 5-hour bus trip could be a bit dicey. Is it better tohire a private taxi (about how much would you expect to pay) or to rent a carfor the one way trip and return it near Suva (which is still an hour from thejetty we need to get to) We also wondered about stopping at a market for food,snacks and maybe some spirits to take with us to Naigani Island as I understandthat there are no markets there. Is it more reasonable to buy spirits at theDuty Free in LAX or in-country? Also what are the types of things that we absolutelymust bring with us on this trip? Has anyone been to either of these resorts recently? Whatare your impressions? How has the diving been down there and are there sitesthat we should not miss? Seasoned Fiji travelers and/or people living there we wouldlove to hear from you. Thank you again!
