Comments Scuba Queen, 40+',good shape, well equipped with First Aid,O2, GPS, depth, shower, toilet, galley, plenty of drinking water, juice. Weighted line at 15' for safety stops and current line. Chamber in nearby Suva. Atu and Marika 10 years of dive master experience, examined our equipment to understand relases for BC's, integrated weights and our computers. Atu is especially conscientious. Lush feathery bright soft corals, starfish and swim thrus at Caesars Rock, a tasty and beautiful lunch served in black laquered boxes with snorkling at picture perfect Yanutha Island, Side Street had bright yellow fluted vase and black rubbery sponges, foreye butterfly, rock beauty's, puffers, bright soft corals and more. Hard corals are mostly dead, much in part to lots of touching by other divers. Soft corals are healthy and beautiful from strong currents and this isn't a drift dive so be in good shape and comfortable handling yourself and gear in them. Currents threatened to rip my mask off and 4'swells yanked me up and down at Side Street while hanging on to the saftey stop line. A reef hook might come in handy for photos or at the top of the reef for your safety stop.
