Kaleidoscopic Kabara

We recently had the pleasure of sailing out to the Far Southern Lau group about 180 miles southeast of Taveuni to do a charter for very well traveled Australian Gentleman and his lovely lady. The island of Kabara was unknown to me and all the seafaring friends I have here in Fiji who know the Lau group well. We sailed down and found a fabulous pink sand beach with an excellent anchorage behind it with easy entrance. We spent our first day diving a series of pinnacles that hug the western side of the island while towing the dinghy behind us. It was nothing less than spectacular! The corals here were battling each other for light and space and the colors were nothing short of Kaleidoscopic. Purples, greens, pinks, blues, yellows and lavenders all  blurred together  into a spinning wheel of color. 

After a long day of snorkeling we enjoyed a spectacular sunset over the open sea and a candlelit dinner under a brilliant banner of stars. It was the first of many incredible days in Southern Lau.

Lau: the Undiscovered Land

We had the pleasure of exploring Northern Lau with an adventurous family from the states recently. Powder soft pink beaches, uninhabited islands inside pristine atolls and no one to greet us but sea birds, coconut crabs and the occasional turle. The turquoise waters shimmered in the sunlight and the stars gleamed from above at night. This is the Fiji that south pacific dreams are made of!

Ravishing Rarantiqa

Our trip to Rarantiqa in the amazing ring hold atolls had some spectacular weather! The sun was out, the reef was glowing and the 30 meter visibility made for some incredible snorkelling! This tiny island inside of the Ringhold atoll offers some amazing scenery. The reef provides protection from the open ocean and the reefs just thrive here away from any interference. Large schools of reef fish and the occasional pelagic wanderer make for exciting snorkelling and of course Heli's luscious lunches make for a luxurious return to the yacht from a salty swim!
