Our News                 

Kyoko's Trip: Kyoko visited Fiji this Spring for the second time. She lead a group of 7 to Wananavu Beach Resort for a week and dove Bligh Waters, moved to Kadavu (Matana Beach Resort) and to Beqa (Taunovo Resort and Lalati Resort with Aqua Trek). She loves diving in Fiji. Each region has different flavor and selection of marine life. In Bligh Water you see an array of soft corals and many fish and invertebrates. Some of the seamounts are loaded with creatures. In Kadavu you can see Mantas and small creatures. No current is a favorable for their habitat and your diving. If you visit Beqa, shark dives are a must. Kyoko thinks that it was the best shark dive ever. Big bulls and lemons are worth noting even though her favorite sharks are Silvertip and Gray. They were all there. Fiji is a great place to dive and there are so many islands and resorts to choose from. To see her experience in Fiji please visit her website. You can read about Fiji as well as the other destinations she has visited.  HereŐs the link:

AirlinesŐ baggage allowance is getting smaller, all are different and constantly changing. DOT has just issued an order that airlines list baggage conditions when you purchase the tickets. If you have air tickets now, check the restrictions before you pack. American has just announced their plan of charging for all checked bags for domestic flights.  We have summarized a current baggage restriction on our Before the Trip page. We hope this will help your trip preparation.
