UW Photo Comments Nice, dry, camera room for setup and work. Rinse tanks close by and all you do is rinse the camera, set it down and it shows up on the skiff you're taking to the dive site. After the dive, they bring it off the skiff, rinse it and set it down by the camera room for you. Couldn't be any easier! All the boat operators and dive masters are well versed in taking care of your camera on the boat and did a great job for us (14 photographers on this last trip!)

Comments A terrific dive operation. The boat is really set up nicely for photographers. The crew was among the best I've ever dove with and the room large and kept clean for us. Food was fantastic all week long with great variety and portions (you could always ask for more). Each meal you had several choices which made it nice too. The only complaint I would have is that the dining room/main salon was not air conditioned. As it turned out the weather wasn't too hot and it was not a problem but if you are going there in the high heat of summer, be prepared. Overall, one of the best dive boats I've been on and Fiji itself is incredibly rich in underwater soft coral and wildlife. My first trip to Fiji but definitely not my last!
