Wednesday 18th April

We sail all night to reach Kadavu Island 68 miles away from Gau Island, Sun is shining, sky is crystal clear, sea and wind conditions are calm and it feels like a perfect day for diving.

Our guest saw a hawksbill turtle, Moray eel, sweetlips, grey reef, white tip and black tip sharks, huge puffer fish, leaf scorpion fish, as our guest are all back on board safely we heaved anchor and headed down to Papageno for a wrecked dive. We cruised with mild current we met many barracudas in the blue. We also spotted a few moray eels and a juvenile Napoleon wrasse. Short surface interval and we are wet again.

For our next dive we made passage to solo wall our guest saw juvenile emperor angel fish they also saw many fusilier fish at the surface all of them a bit tetchy due to the appearance of a dog tooth tuna , after the dive we headed back to port after 15 minutes of steaming our cruise director spotted a group of pilot whale so we had to slow down as they right ahead of us relaxing another great way to end the dive trip!
