The boat had 2 rinse tanks for cameras.  There was a small area to store
cameras on board if you didn't want it to rattle around in the rinse tank.

This was our 4th trip  to Fiji.  Our previous 3 were at Beqa Island.
Great diving & accomodations, but too much rain.  My wife & I were
celebrating our 25th anniversary & were looking for better weather.
We found it.  Mostly sun  with few clouds & wind the 8 days we stayed. 
It was one of the best trips to Fiji we've had. The resort is on the side
of a hill with the entrance at the top of the hill. The grounds are well
landscaped & well maintained. The large bure has the boutique, main
desk & dining room with a large deck for eating overlooking the ocean
& nearby islands. First night was in a oceanview bure up the hill from
the beach.  Each bure has 2 separate units, each with a queen bed &
large bathroom.  The next nights we were in a honeymoon bure on the beach. 
It was very spacious with large bed, double sink, indoor & outdoor
showers, & a "plunge" pool (not heated).  The food was good,
not really gormet, but there was plenty of it.  They had several themed
buffet nights & you didn't have to order from the menu.
Kai Viti divers was really great.  They dive no matter how many divers they
had for the day.  It's usually 2 tanks daily & sometimes a 3 tank trip
out to Vatu I Ra Passage, weather permitting.  The dive briefings were
short, but the dive guides were very attentive to everyone's needs to
assure a safe dive & they try to find critters for you.  We saw sharks,
schools of barracuda, large spotted eagle rays, soft corals, macro
critters, etc.  Beqa Lagoon has more macro critters, but not as much
"wall" diving and the vis can be compromised when it rains.  And,
as always, the Fijians are some of the friendliest people we meet.  They
want to be sure you enjoy your stay in their country.
My wife & I thought this was a great resort, esp. for the price.
