Family Explorer Weeks at Beqa Lagoon Resort

Bula and welcome to paradise! Now for Easter Break!

Plus, at the end of July and beginning of August , families come to Beqa island to participate in the Family Explorers Weeks at Beqa Lagoon Resort.

Family Explorers Week is more than just a vacation. It is an adventure that brings together adults and kids from all over, with one common thread - their love of the ocean and their desire to dive and experience another country and totally different culture.

Parents enjoy a stress free dive vacation at Beqa Lagoon Resort because they are confident and comfortable entrusting their kids to our experienced team. Beqa Lagoon Resort dive programs are designed to make learning enjoyable, safe and educational. Under the guidance of professional PADI Instructors, your kids will gain confidence while mastering important safety concepts and skills.

The kids participate in specialized, age appropriate and performance based, dive activities. Kids can experience as much fun and learning as they wish - there are both recreational and educational activities for any age and skill level.

However, the fun doesn’t stop there - after all, diving is just one of many facets of the Beqa Lagoon Resort adventure. Our guests will also have the opportunity to visit the local village, attend Fijian school, race crabs, play volleyball, cook traditional Fijian dishes and MUCH, MUCH more - we have prepared an extensive list of activities for everyone.

Parents have the option to either dive and participate in various activities along with the kids, or venture off to partake in more advanced dives or relax and unwind at our beachfront spa or nearby hammock - the youngsters are going to be taken care of.

Optional Scuba Diving Available:

Supplied Air Snorkeling for Youth (SASY): from 5 years old
1-2 hours in the pool. Price: $75

In the SASY program, kids 5-8yrs old wear a “BCD” and scuba equipment just like the older kids, but they stay on the surface, and experience breathing from a regulator while floating and without going underwater.

The BCD is like a life preserver, and it holds a real scuba tank with a functioning regulator and air gauge. However, the BCD is not weighted, so the child remains positively buoyant at the surface of the pool. Kids wear a mask and fins just like the older kids, and they can practice “scuba” on the surface.

Bubblemakers: from 8 years old
​1-2 hours in the pool. Price $75

Bubblemakers is as fun as it sounds – a chance for kids to blow bubbles by scuba diving. Children who are at least 8 years old can use scuba gear to breathe underwater and swim around in shallow water.

Bubblemakers get a chance to experience scuba diving under the direct care and supervision of a PADI Pro, ake their first breaths underwater in a pool. They will learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults.

SEAL Team: from 8 years old and up
Several 1-2 hours sessions in the pool. Price $75 for first session, $50 for subsequent sessions. 

The PADI Seal Team is for young scuba divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by completing exciting AquaMissions.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to dive with flashlights, take digital pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? Beyond learning basic scuba skills, there are specialty AquaMissions, such as wreck diving, navigation, buoyancy, environmental awareness and more. PADI Seal Team includes doing some cool stuff in the pool, meeting friends and sharing in the adventure of the underwater world.

The PADI Seal Team program teaches responsibility and respect for the aquatic realm.

PADI Open Water Course: from 10 years old
5 academic sessions, 5 pool sessions, 4 ocean dives – Takes about 4 days to complete.
Ages 10-14 will earn PADI Junior Open Water Certification, Ages 15+ will earn PADI Junior Open Water Certification.
Price: $399 Private Training: $650

 

Kids will learn more than a new set of skills. They will learn how to navigate their way through a whole new environment (underwater!) and how to do so safely and with excitement. They will master the basic fundamentals and then build upon them gradually so they don't feel rushed. Instead, they feel confident and comfortable. Kids will learn at their own pace--however fast or slow--even if extra lessons are required.
