From pilot whales to dolphins jumping, this week the Fiji Siren had it all roaming out on the oceans. We started the week with dives out to Vatulaca Reef. After the standard shake down dive we dropped into Dream Maker. The top region of the site is covered in golden yellow soft corals and the deep end can have some strong currents making it a nice home for reef sharks and barracuda. During the dive there was a few sharks swimming about and a small school of barracuda but a real highlight was towards the end up amongst the yellow coral when three spotted eagle rays circled before swimming off into the deep. As the day followed we managed more sighting of reef sharks and small schooling fish along with abundances of soft coral all over the place.

Another beautiful day in our pacific paradise as we prepare for more adventures on the high seas surrounding the 333-islands which make-up Fiji. Shortly after boarding, the Fiji Siren was away towards our first dive site and a chance for many to experience their first taste of Fijian diving at its finest. A favorite shake-down location of recent has been Amazing Maze, a nice gentle shallow dive with a good array of critters from nudibranch and scorpion fish to octopus and schooling barracuda as well as ample gorgonian sea fans, anemone and a mixture of soft and hard coral plus of course a maze of tunnels and passages giving the site its name.
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.
