Here are my first aerial shots of NAI'A in Fiji. At this year's DEMA show all the old pros who came by our booth were talking about drones, so I went out an bought one on my last day in Las Vegas. These are it's first shots in Fiji, taken at Mt. Mutiny on a lovely calm day. The flight just before this one was much better -- a shot of the whole reef from way overhead, divers rolling out of the skiff -- but of course I failed to push the record button before launching the drone...! Since I hadn't flown over the water before, I was just happy to get my investment back warm and dry. (Shot using a DJI Phantom 2 drone with GoPro Hero 4 camera.)


“I'm sure that it's very difficult for the Nai'a establishment to solve this thorny situation. But, be assured that we, your Nai'a family in a small way, are sympathetic. We realize that the reason we love your trips is that you spend what it takes for a quality voyage. That's why we come back. And that's why we plonk down $10K to sail with you. We know it's worth it.”
