Wednesday – 13th September 2017 – Namena Island

To start the day, we made our first dive at North save a tack, current was mild enough for our divers many coral heads with abundance of fish life. During the dive, we came across various types of morays, groupers, jacks, lionfish, and many other reef fish. After this, we headed straight for another wall dive. This site was really majestic and full of colors, which provoked the guests into having 2 consecutive dives here. The presence of moray eels, parrotfish, octopus and a few turtles were seen and observed. In addition, last but not the least was the beautiful and creatively shaped corals that gave a soothing background as it blends with the clear waters. The guests were pleased with the view and observations done since the site was satisfying due to the beautiful marine ecosystem that offered for them.

 

Thursday – 14th September - 2017 – Vatu I ra

We made our debut at E6 where a beautiful and amazing coral reef lies. This was mostly its attraction for the guests as it contained different colored corals that shun into a spectrum of light when touched by sunlight few diagonal and oriental sweetlips moving. Second dive divers saw many parrotfish, lion and scorpion fish, some goatfish and many angelfish. We took some time here, since most of the guests enjoyed the view underwater here. Both mobile and immobile residents are the center of attraction for the guests such as unicorn fish, parrotfish and a few shrimps with corals that looked more shinny and colorful than most marine organisms. Majestic and amazing location indeed.
