What a great honor to welcome back 4 guests from Belgium who were with us on Fiji Siren in February of last year, it’s always exciting when we have friends return for another visit. As is typical we seem to have another United Nations delegation on-board with no less than 10 different nationalities present for our 119th charter. Our shake-down dive was at Corridors of Fun where we saw some beautiful soft coral, healthy sea fans, scorpion fish, blue dragons and plenty of very large electric blue jellyfish. From here it was a smooth overnight voyage down to our southernmost stop at the island of Gau some 11-hours away.

The Fiji Siren liveaboard welcomed on board a new group of divers all ready for their new diving experience in Fiji!
We started our journey at Vatulaca Reef just on the horizon from Volivoli where we dived at Tequila Sunrise which had multitudes of yellow soft coral and a couple of reef sharks, schooling barracuda and of course the corals spread out over the reef. Lastly we dived at Neptune’s Rhapsody, again with soft corals all over the place. After Vatulaca Reef we moved to Vatu-I-Ra and the beautiful sites located around there. The currents were being very favourable this week. All were gentle making the diving very easy. Thankfully the corals enjoyed the gentle flow as well as they were all open in all their magnificence feeding on anything passing by in the current. This made the sites of Mellow Yellow and Instant Replay absolutely amazing with massive coral blooms. Add a few of the larger fish into the mix and you have a great dive.
‘Bula vinaka and a very big welcome on-board Fiji Siren, this will be your home for the next 7-nights and we are your Fijian family’ – that’s the way I like to begin every cruise! For this charter we had a very leisurely start, slow casual fun briefings, lots of time spent setting-up new dive equipment and cameras, getting strobes sorted, generally chatting to each other and making new friends. For this cruise we were also fortunate enough to have Mig Wehrle, GM Aqualung Southeast Asia with us, who was officially on his honeymoon with his beautiful wife Meike, however brought along lots of new Aqualung toys and equipment for everyone to try out and for many of us to put on our ‘wish list’.
Bula once again divers!! For this cruise we had some super special return guest aboard with us for our 10-day trek around the Lomaiviti and up to Taveuni. We started our liveaboard dive trip in the Bligh Waters of Fiji.
Ni Sa Bula and welcome to another week of fabulous diving aboard the S/Y Fiji Siren. This week we had a very mixed group of divers from all over the world, some close and some far. We had a couple from the extended Siren Fleet family (Chris & Helen) joining us on their 4th Siren cruise and a few others doing their second journeys and even a couple joining for their first ever Siren trip. We had English, French, German, Dutch, Polish, Danish and American.
