This exciting International Veterinary Seminars course takes place in the secluded Fiji Island Paradise of Beqa (pronounced “Benga”). NOTE: Our Fiji IVS/Bio Bio trip price includes roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles.

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.

Dive pristine reefs to discover rich marine life and beautiful coral gardens. Enjoy fun-filled days snorkeling, swimming or kayaking the warm waters of the blue lagoon. Hike to beautiful waterfalls, or spend an exciting afternoon deep sea fishing. Beqa is also a bird watching haven with the largest varieties of birds in Fiji. You can end the day relaxing in a hammock overlooking the sea or by lounging in the infinity pool.

Warwick Fiji:
On the seventh day of your trip, you will have the morning and lunch at Beqa Lagoon Resort. If you are a diver you will enjoy your fourth day of diving this morning.
