Comments We were six divers (I was a solo), on the new to Agressor, Sere Ni Wai (Agressor II). This is a nice boat, with an excellent crew. This was a really fine live aboard experience. Compares well with the Palau Agressor. Cabin was as good as you would want for a live aboard. The boat was well maintained and clean. Not a single boat problem on the trip. The trip took us to Makogal and Nemena islands. out to the Vatu-I-Ra channel to E6 and Hi8 sites,Wakaya and Gau Islands. On Gau we visited Waikama Village for a fun, fulfilling experience Worth giving up one night dive for!
Fritz, the skipper has been in Fiji for over20 years and is a good seaman who worked hard to find the best sites and conditions (not always easy).
Sea life and corals on the islands were generally very good to excellent. The well known sites in Vatu-I-Ra channel, E6 and Hi8 I found were pretty dead of sea life but still interesting for the spectacular geography of the sites. Lots of sharks and fishes-grest place for photography. White tip, grey reef, hammerheads (a few), Leaf fish, Blue ribbon eels to name a few interesting and regular sightings. Currents were sometimes strong but the briefings were good so there were no surprises. Sharks (and sea life)in Nigali channel on Gau were terrific (twice) in a strong incoming current. Super for photos.
Rate the overall experience very good. Many really good sites/dives, the usual few mediocre sites.
