Congratulations: to Dan n successfully completing his NITROX cert during the trip!

Blue Grass dive club joined us for a seven day trip. A full boat of friends, who have all travelled together regularly. Most of the group were from Kentucky in the USA & ready for a week of fun. The jokes and laughter started as soon as they were aboard & didn't stop until they had departed. Glorious weather, great diving & lots of new critters helped make the week one to remember!

Mo, our rather large dive master who is incredible at finding small stuff, had previously found an unidentified Seahorse cross Pipefish - we have sent photos & video of the critter to several well renowned Marine Scientists & no-one has seen them before. When we returned from dry dock our little friend had moved house & alas was nowhere to be found. So on this trip when Brigitte was looking for Yellow Nosed Gobies & found FIVE more we were ecstatic!. Fiji's macro life is sometimes overlooked by divers due to the overwhelming color & abundance of 'Big Stuff', but there are critters galore hiding on the reef's of Fiji!.

“Lomaiviti reefs are in extremely good condition compared to Indonesia and PNG. Immediate action must be taken to conserve this unique region.”
