Manta Ray Visitor

New PADI Divemasters Wilson and Ilisoni had an unexpected visitor during their DM training dives – a Manta Ray!

The rest of the Pro Dive Taveuni team – Allan, Zoe and Manasa – were putting the boys through their paces on the House Reef when the graceful ray cruised past.

Manta rays are sometimes seen on our dive sites but to see one just 20m from our marina and in a depth of only 5m was an amazing moment.

The following day the same ray visited Paradise again, this time swooping past on the surface in front of the resort – much to the delight of all the guests.

Safe 'n' Sound in Paradise

Cyclone Daman has tried to get to Paradise - but NO GO!

The tropical cyclone is now north north east of the Fiji islands and is travelling out to sea. Taveuni has experience little wind and some rain over the last 2 days and therefore no damage to our garden island has occured.

This morning our dive boat took divers out to Vuna Reef to the Fish Factory. All resort activities and adventures are on schedule with the 2 hour cultural walk departing with Wilson and Guests and our guide taking the Mountain Trek Horseride a with other Guests.

So it's business as usual in Paradise and Taveuni!
