Pilot whales, mating octopi, rogue hammerheads, an all-black manta and even a mystery pipehorse made for a trip to remember!

Our stunning Fiji reefs welcomed us home after two months among whales in Tonga. There’s truly no place like home!
Last Tonga charter: super-interactive moms and calves, song so loud we could hear it above water and the hottest heat runs of the year!
Multiple high-adrenalin bull runs, a gorgeous little calf playing peekaboo from under momma’s fluke and a mom-calf-escort trio noisily chit-chatting to each other
Old babies, new babies and fierce competition to father next year's baby. The action heats up in the middle of the Tonga whale season.
Rowdy bull runs, hyperactive breaching babies, whale song you could FEEL, and an escort throwing its weight around, shared with Secret Sea Visions.
The world's friendliest humpback, a dancing duo and a few proud mommas showing off their calves: words and photos don’t do this trip justice, but what memories!
Among the great rewards on this charter: a 3 hour non-stop, multi-whale breaching display and a peaceful 90 minute mom and calf session of dreams!
That magic moment when you first make eye to eye contact with a 45' humpback whale will stay with you forever!
Our final trip before the Tonga humpback whale season produced quality time with our Fiji favorites: hammerheads, infinite barracuda and soft coral like nowhere else!
Former Cruise Director Sonia and her friends, all of whom have dived around the world together for many years, enjoyed (created?) another great Fiji expedition.
Sonia, former Cruise Director extraordinaire, returned with two full charters of friends and brought her famously awesome diving mojo with her. What a trip!
The most relaxing 'Zen' charter we've ever done – until we snorkelled with eight mantas, spotted a humpback on the surface and dived with hammerheads and eagle rays.
This fabulous trip was jam-packed with incredible sightings: schooling hammerheads, barrel rolling mantas and two huge frog fish! Fiji diving at its finest.
The luck of the Irish brought us eagle rays, sea snakes and a nurse shark, not to mention endless walls of soft corals and schooling fish for days...
“After 60 years of diving all over the world, Fiji still surprises and intrigues me. Fiji is a destination uniquely safe and easy to reach yet it is the colour of our dreams.”
