Scuba Diving in Fiji
Dive Site: Shark Alley
Depth: 18 metres (59 feet)
Visibility: 30 - 40 metres (100 - 130 feet)
Shark Alley is adjacent to Yaduataba. I recall being absorbed by everything on the reef in a mist of colour and movement and I became so overwhelmed by the beauty and colours of the reef life that I had to look away into the pure blue of the sea to regain my perspective. In the distance I made out some dark green shapes which were moving further up the reef away from me so I quickened up my pace to follow. They became more vivid and I realized that they were three bumphead parrotfish, the largest being 110cm which is a pretty spectacular size for a fish. I was able to enjoy and follow them for a while until they disappeared out of vision into another part of the reef. Then in a glimpse below me I saw my first white tip reef shark cruising up the reef wall. I was amazed at how the shark moved through the water with such elegance. It appeared to be at one in its element and didn't seem bothered about me being in its ocean even though I know it sensed my presence.
