We rang in 2020 on an adventure in the South Pacific exploring new dive sites and making lasting memories above and below sea level!
NAI'A's Blog: The Divemasters' Diary
A boatload of experienced divers, all new to NAI’A, discovered our reefs’ stunning beauty and diversity to declare Fiji their new favourite dive spot!
Beautiful weather and great conditions, teamed with surprise encounters and wonderful company, showed off Fiji at its finest and built lasting memories.
Every kind of shark, mantas, pipefish, pygmy seahorses and some kicking current kept our guests on their toes in bountiful Bligh Waters!
Jemma and Scott, on their first voyage as NAI’A’s new Cruise Directors, saw 30 hammerheads, a black manta and Mellow Yellow at its best. Good start!
We loved feeling the excitement verging on disbelief of a whole charter of divers new to NAI’A experiencing our crazy magical undersea world!
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!
“We loved every minute of our time with you in Tonga! It could not have been any better. Each and every member of the NAI’A team was outstanding and each of you made our whale expedition unforgettable. The whales, the hospitality, the guides, the skiff driving, the dinners and the singing and kava… Everything was wonderful. It was the best honeymoon ever!”
