The coral reefs are absolutely gorgeous.  The little fish were so
beautiful.  We got alot of pictures of Nemo.The ocean was very choppy and
not as clear as I expected.  The currents were horrible.  We should have
brought gloves as you did have to hold on at times.  Even the crew was
surprised.  We were told  there is more current during the new moon.  The
current was so swift it was almost impossible to compose a picture.  Since
we had never been on the Na'ia before we were uncomfortable worrying about
getting sucked out to sea and lost. There was no need to worry. The 2
skiffs that each take 8 divers were right there to pick you up when you
surfaced.  They just followed the bubbles. As soon as you got in the skiff
they would take you back to the Na'ia.  There would always be one skiff
that stayed  with the divers while the other skiff transported divers back
to the Na'ia.  This is a first class operation.  The crew treated you like
old friends and the food was excellent.  We especially liked the trip to
the village.  We appreciate being exposed to alittle of their culture.  The
crew are great musicians.  We had music every night.  Kava was horrible but
we drank it.  The 12 hour trip from LA to Nadi was awful. Get there a day
early to recoup from the plane ride.  We stayed at the Novatel Hotel. It
was very nice, the food was expensive.
