Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing! This was my highlight of our trip. So much so, we went back again. From the very start the whole crew were welcoming. professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
Special shout out to my superstars Josh “Hoot Hoot” (New nickname he totally loves 😜) and Sherry “Giggle” (It’s yours now, own it Sherry 💜)
Also supported by an amazing team, including the Captains and office staff. Everyone made the experience for my son (14) and myself very enjoyable.
Lots of fish, turtle, sharks (small), magic coral among other things to check out.
I would recommend this to everyone who goes to Shangri la, they cover all experience levels. We had no experience at the start but learnt so much and felt safe at all times to expand on these skills.
There’s even bubble making for the smaller kids so they can experience what a dive would be like.
Thank you again to everyone. Loved it 😊

Went on the introductory Bull Shark dive with Mike and the extensive crew from Reef Safari Barefoot Kuata yesterday. Everyone who is able should do this. 20-odd years of holidaying around the Pacific - this was the best experience by far. Very well run professional outfit - you literally have your hand held throughout the whole dive by experienced diver who do this everyday - we both felt 100% safe throughout. Can't say more - do this if you can. Dive Master Mike has terrible dad jokes though....

This was the best part of my whole trip. My guide, Sherry, was absolutely lovely, bringing big smiles and knowledge to the dive, making me excited and comfortable

We did the South Island trip, the weather was rough, but when we got there they assured us they could still take us diving. I’m so glad we listen to them and did this experience! My partner can’t swim and he is scared of water but Bio and his colleague were fantastic! Getting under the water from the shore, the wind and rain were terrifying but thanks to them we were able to just dive in, into the peaceful reef. They literally took our hands and not let go until the end.
It was a short dive but enough to see stingrays, corals, starfish, and plenty of beautiful fishes. They also took pics and we got really nice shots.
A life changing experience!
Vinaka!

First time scuba diving experience with my 10 year old son. Michael, our fantastic dive instructor, is one of life’s truly amazing people and his teaching, patience, knowledge and support was incredible. Life changing experience for me as I’ve been terrified of the ocean for so long. First class experience from the briefing to the end. Thank you :-) p.s will definitely be another dive for me and my son.

The Reef Safari Dive crew were amazing and made it a totally enjoyable time at The Wall dive site. As an inexperienced diver, Mike was very supportive and made it an awesome underwater experience. Turtles, a Grey Nurse shark and a heap of different types of tropical fish. Amazing. Thank you.

Great 45 minute boat trip out to the reef for snorkelling with our group of 25 - including kids from 7-16 years. It was a great experience, well organised, friendly and experienced crew - thanks for a wonderful trip.

We went diving with sharks while staying at Shangri La and it was an amazing experience. We would highly recommend it. It was our first scuba dive ever and Michael put us at ease, he is extremely experienced and we felt complete confidence with him. It was a big tick off our list and we are so pleased we did it. We went down to 12m, the visibility was crystal clear and saw around 30 sharks. Awesome! The whole crew were great including James.

What an amazing experience to do something I was unsure if I’d ever do. I done the reef dive and the shark dive, a massive thanks to Michael and Chloe. You guys are amazing and helped me through it to see something some only dream of. I highly recommend doing this whilst staying in Fiji 🏝🦈🍺

This was a brilliant experience again. Thanks to James and the team. I hadn’t dived for 10 years but the reintroduction experience was fantastic. Literally holding my hand for the dive. I had my adult sons with me for their first time dive, the team making us all feel extremely comfortable. Highly recommended experience particularly if you are feeling a little nervous and a first time diver…….you will definitely not regret it …Rod
