Grey reef sharks gracefully negotiating their way amongst what must have literally been a smorgasbord for them

The Fiji Siren crew was very happy to welcome back ‘photo pro’ Mr Douglas Hoffman who was on-board conducting another underwater photography workshop throughout the cruise as well as a bunch of repeat guests!  To start our subsurface proceedings it was a quick hop over to our neighboring island, Nananu-I-Ra, where we got straight into the swing of things with a nice easy shake-down dive at Amazing Maze among myriads of swim-through adorned with beautiful gorgonian sea fans and of course no dive in Fiji would ever be complete without thousands upon thousands of colourful anthias.

Diving Komodo is always a blast!

The Indo Siren welcomed on board a group from Equator diving. So it was really nice to say hello again. On the first day we had plenty of time to get settled and sorted.

The first day of diving we started in Bima Bay with Unusual Suspects where our guest had already some great encounters: Wonderpus, seahorses, rhinopias, harlequin shrimp and much more were our encounters. During lunch, the liveaboard dive trip continued to Sandeang, where we started with  Black Sand and its colourful reefs.

This was absolutely spectacular!

Bula once again from the Fiji Siren Crew! We kicked off the week diving in the Vatu Passage with a couple of mild dives to Mellow Yellow and Black Magic Mountain both hast slack tide making for a very easy spin around the pinnacles. We had a couple of reef sharks and barracuda float with us through the water. After three dives here we picked up the anchor and moved the Fiji Siren onwards to Wakaya Island.

Amazing dives all along the diving cruise!

The Philippine Siren welcomed on board a brand new group of divers all ready for their liveaboard diving holidays in the Tubbataha Reef!  The first dive day started at Jessie Beazley Reef. We did two lovely dives along the dramatic walls and over the shallow plateaus. We spotted numerous grey reef sharks and loads of whitetip reef sharks. The amount of fish just off the wall was again unbelievable. Everybody got a taste of Tubbataha’s beauty and was eager to have another bite of it. Next on the schedule was Malayan Wreck. The wreck itself sits on top of the shallow plateau and with the absence corals or big fish isn’t the main attraction of the site. That would be the nearby corner where the currents come together from different directions resulting in an upwelling of nutrients attraction loads of fish. And with that the dogtooth tunas, giant trevallies, grey reef sharks and white sharks. The nervous darting around of the fish really works well for our guests. It’s hard not to get excited yourself too when you see so much life around you. All in all, we drew the conclusion that it had been a great first day of diving!

Just Magical

This was going to be a special trip for the Philippine Siren because a group of many marine life researchers and people working in or on the Ocean were going to dive Tubbataha with us! We chatted with the group leaders and made some plans for what looked to be a very nice week with extra activities such as presentations, a barbeque at the ranger station and talktails… talks with cocktails. After the formalities and getting clearance from the coast guard we set off on the eleven to twelve hour boat ride to the Tubbataha Reefs National Park.

Dive, Eat, Dance and Laugh!

Once again we find ourselves greeting a new set of diver aboard the S/Y Fiji Siren, this time all were from Santa Barbara in the United States of America. This was to be one of the greatest cruises we have been on as all the guests were friends who had travelled together in one way shape or form. Some from diving and others in snow skiing. The crew realized not long after greeting these exceptional people that we were in for a big week of antics.
