Sunshine and Stiff Breezes for Snorkelers

by Delia on June 26, 2011

Snorkeling Holidays in Fiji - Colin about to Jump InThe snorkelling week in June was our biggest yet. We had uninterrupted sunshine although the opening few days were windy and the sea had a fair chop. Nevertheless, the snorkelers saw plenty of fish and several sharks which is always a buzz.

There was also a turtle sighting – a special joy to see the grace of this creature, so clumsy on land and so fluent and powerful in the ocean. The later part of the week was calm and clear, with fantastic visibility at Lighthouse.

The best coral of the week was a toss-up between Nuggets and Maravu beach – both of them seen in good sun and offering a lovely range of hard and soft corals.

Johnny’s evening lectures were lively and informative and the snorkelers soaked up the all the information he had to share and laughed at all his silly jokes!
