Fiji Trip Report 2023

Fiji Trip Report 2023
There are some destinations that we all want to dive at least once, just to see how they compare to other places, see a certain creature, or check that box on our travel wish list. But there are also a handful of very special places that make you want to return again and again, and for me, Fiji belongs solidly on this short list. For sheer scenic beauty, healthy reefs, abundance and variety of marine life, and vibrant underwater colors, there is nothing quite like it. And as a bonus, it’s easy to access, safe, and boasts an incredibly friendly and welcoming local culture. Topping it off, our floating home on our recent trip was one of my very favorite liveaboards, the venerable Nai’a, which recently celebrated their 30th year of operation in these waters.
Muck diving

What is "muck diving"?

Over the years, “muck diving” has become increasingly popular, especially among underwater photographers. For those of you who don’t know, muck diving refers to the practice of searching the ocean floor, often made up of black sand, sediment and general muck, for the tiny critters that live there. It’s the antithesis of diving vast coral reefs and gawking at massive schools of fish as they swim past.
