Small camera table that sometimes got cluttered with non-photo stuff; 2
large rinse tanks on board; when diving from Zodiac, cameras were in some
danger of being stepped on. I had no issues in this regard.

The Fiji Aggressor III ( the Sere Ni Wai) carries 10 divers with a crew of
6. The boat has a large enough dining area and salon. The back deck also
serves for dive gear storage but is spacious enough for dive briefings,
lounging and eating. There is no top deck for sunning nor spa.

Most of the diving is off the big boat with about 6 dives from Zodiacs.
Many dives involve circumnavigating several bombies so it is best to go
with the dive guides although venturing off on one's own is OK but not
recommended. The dive masters, Moses and Rhys, do an excellent job of
briefing the dives and finding critters. The trip included dives off of
several islands -- Namena, Wakaya, Mokagai, Gau.

The trip inlcuded a village visit on Mokagai that was truly enjoyable. The
village children did some native songs and dances. On board, we
participated in a Kava ceremony and downed several high-tide cups of Kava.

The marine life was plentiful and varied -- many, many anemones with
anemonefish, incredible soft coral, octopus, cleaner shrimp, lionfish,
blue-ribbon eels, scorpionfish, schools of jacks and barracuda, hawkfish,
gobies, sharks, groupers, nudibranchs, marble rays, etc.

Luka, the chef, prepared lots of great, tasty meals,-- some with a local
flavor such as curries.

The boat staff was always very helpful in accommodating guest requests and
needs. They were also a lot of fun. Captain Ned did a great job. Also, the
crew cleans all the diver's gear on the last day. A nice touch.

On most days divers had the opportunity for 5 dives. However, on Friday
there is only 1 dive. It would be nice to be able to do 2 dives on the last

In summary, a great trip. This was my 2nd trip on this boat and I would
return for a 3rd.
