So long and thanks for all the fish
We had just had a nice long break in eastern Fiji, surfing, reading books, diving and relaxing, and although we had a wonderful time, it was great to get back on the Nai’a and get back to work.
The group we had aboard this week was a mix of Americans from Texas, California, Jersey and Michigan, and a french man. Some had been to Fiji before and some hadn’t so it was a good mix of people to be around.

The weather was a little windy but the diving - as always - was great! It was nice to remind ourselves just how healthy the reefs here are and to see all our regular sites with fresh eyes.
The trip started off with a bang with Joe finding a little frogfish on Mellow Yellow!
Nigali was again a highlight. Many of the divers were well impressed by our large resident groupers. We must get around to naming them one day..
The night diving was particularly good this week. It’s getting darker a little earlier too now because of the winter months meaning that we can get two night dives in to our five dive schedule. Works for me!
I was the lucky one this week, along with Jim. We got the Hammerhead sighting in Wakaya this time around. Made my day, that did.
Not long now and we’re off to Tonga!
“Fiji is a hot spot of biodiversity. We’re here for the rich colorful soft coral reefs as well as the unusual stuff - the strange little creatures and endemic fishes.”
