The fourth and fifth dive, namely Galoa Passage, had much marine life. This was the sole reason to why they requested for two consecutive dives.

The journey was an instantaneous since the weather was in a good mood. There were lots of colorful marine life, including clams, reef fish, critters, black corals and butterfly fish. The second dive was at the Bomb Shell. The extraordinary reef was filled with corals and fish which was quite magnificent in their own way. There were soft and black coral with the presence of a few groupers, goatfish, banded snake, oriental and diagonal sweetlips, pipefish, trumpet fish, angelfish, parrot fish and many sharks. On that note, the third and fourth dive was at Labyrinth where a lot of reef fish were seen. Not surprising but it was worth the dive, moray eels, blue-ribbon eel, unicorn fish and many critters.

The last day was a slow and steady day so we agreed on one diving location which was Denali. Many marine life such as Leopard and grey reef, white tip sharks, Octopus, moray eel, Hawksbill turtle, sting rays and many more were seen. The sight was indeed delightful and mesmerising. As we headed back to Suva the crew rinsed all their dive gears and dried them before we arrives port.
