Welcome Back: Jamie & Peter, Susan W. & Helen S.

Another great reef adventure!!. Excellent diving, good company & critters galore made it one to remember!.

Susan loved the last trip sooo much she decided to stay on for one more!! Helen used to be a cruise director aboard Nai'a & returned to continue monitoring the health of Fiji's best reefs & collect her temperature logger data. Whilst working hard and laying transects at Wakaya Helen had an incredible Hammerhead encounter - not fair! - the rest of us were at 90ft looking into the blue, Helen was at 30ft studying the hard coral garden when he showed up. Still she managed to get a couple of great head shots & i'm sure she will remember the time a large Hammerhead cruised along her transect!!!.

From Pygmy Seahorse's to large Hammerheads this trip had it all. With all the great photographers aboard to capture those magic moments!!!

Check out the slide show below!!

“Any country with coral reef like this has a national treasure that should be protected. Fiji is one of the few lucky countries.”
