The Cove was directed by Louie Psihoyos and features Simon Hutchins, Mandy-Rae Cruickshank and Kirk Krack, all of whom were together in Fiji aboard Jim Clark's magnificent yacht Athena in 2006. I was hired as local guide and got to spend ten days on the boat showing off the best of Fiji diving. If you watch the film closely, you'll notice Mandy and Kirk swimming through the cathedral at E-6. My only annoyance is that they were planning the film then and they kept the secret from me. It's probably just as well because I'd have given up everything else to help them...!
The Cove -- if you haven't already, go see it!
“Joann & I had a remarkable experience here in Tonga! Our diving trips mostly entail liveaboard boats and this one was the best yet – great crew & great food! You are fortunate to have the ownership in place to allow you to do it right! We won’t easily forget our “Whale Week” on NAI’A – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime gig!!”
