We get a lot of photographers that come to stay with us at Mai Dive. I am always impressed with the way people who know how to take a photo can actually capture the feel of the place in their work. I would like to share with you a link to some of Michaels photo from his stay with us. We are particular grateful for the prints that he sent for our staff. They have then posted up on wall in their house with pride. A big thankyou to Henk and Claudia who were looking after the place during Michael and Luba’s stayed at Mai Dive. Everyone had fun. Hope you enjoy the pics………

Coordinating Saturday travel for all guests to and from our remote location on the Astrolabe Reef will significantly decrease our carbon footprint and provide a more sustainable and responsible operation for our future. At the time of booking your stay, Danielle will be happy to make all of these domestic travel arrangements for you.

As the camera fills up and files need to be deleted, the monthly cleansing can gobble up good photos hidden among many that are out of focus or of the lens cover or any other camera blunder that goes hand in hand with underwater photography. As I was sifting through the memory card, I came across the photos below taken by Bruce and Teresa only 2 weeks ago. Of 100+ photos, these 8 caught my eye and makes me wish I was diving every single day of the week.
If these critters don't wet your appetite for diving, then you've probably already seen it all and need to sell your diving gear. Just kidding.
Anyways, Teresa took these photos with a Sea and Sea over 3 days of diving in the Alacrity Rocks region on the western side of the Astrolabe Reef in Fiji.
And yes, that is a huge octopus!

We've had these two videos sitting around on YouTube for a while, but since we saw Manta Rays on Monday and Tuesday as well as dolphins on Monday and Thursday, I felt like re-posting these two beauties.

Thank you so very very much to Scott and Julianne, Wayne and Karen, and Andrew and Sharon.
First of all, thank you for such a fun time. Scuba diving in Naiqoro Passage, swimming at the waterfall, snorkeling on the big reef, cutting a trail to the top of the mountain, jokes at dinner with Dave and Jeanie, the Mr. Happy shirt, my new hair cut, taking the chain saw into the bush, drinking kava and dancing in Narikoso Village, and all of the other fun times we shared for a short time here in Fiji.Read more...

Bull sharks, Lemon sharks, Silver Tips, massive Trevally, a giant Cod. Only two words can describe this unbelievable sight--AWESOME and SURREAL.
Awesome to see natures furry and grace all wrapped into one event. And surreal for the two dives to be completely inaudible. Not being able to hear the chomping of Tuna heads or the swish of the water when the sharks darted for the food made Jason and I feel like we were watching TV instead of being meters away from the action.
I almost wanted to reach out and touch everything just to prove that it was real, but then I thought better....
Thankfully, I put a nice soundtrack to this mash up so turn up your speakers and enjoy.

Just when we all thought Manta Rays found another home away from the Astrolabe Reef, BAM! manta ray sightings 2 days in a row right off Paradise Beach on Ono Island.
The first day, the gang spotted their wing tips coming through the water's surface. As the boat was coming in for their surface interval after diving at Split Rock, they spotted the manta rays feeding in the water. Kevin made sure to take full advantage of the moment, exclaiming "STOP THE BOAT! STOP THE BOAT!" Kevin, Jason, and the rest of the crew quickly readied their mask, snorkel, and fins to have a swim with the manta rays for more than 30 minutes.Read more...

Last week, Jason entrusted me with a new underwater camera and an awesome wide angle lense. At first, I was a bit hesitant to use it in fear of breaking the little guy, but luckily I'm not that big of a baby. So today was the first time I took it underwater and all went well.Read more...
