The last 10 days here on the Bilikiki were all about snorkelling as we were joined by a group of 20 snorkelers from the USA, Canada and Australia once again under the expert leadership of Wendy Simon from Snorkelling Etc.
We could not have asked for better conditions with calm seas and plenty of sunshine to help enjoy the beauty of the reefs from a different perspective than scuba diving. Every day we did at least two long sessions in the water to discover the diverse marine life. On numerous occasions our snorkelers were rewarded with curious sharks. We also snorkelled with eagle rays, schooling jacks and barracudas, and saw plenty of nudibranchs, gobies, and different species of anemone fish. The beautiful hard coral gardens at Kicha and Mbulo impressed everyone, as did the magnificent soft corals along the reef of Karumolun. We observed a female cuttlefish laying eggs, juvenile batfish hiding in the sea grass, banded sea crates, turtles and bumphead parrotfish too. In Karanjou the adrenalin was running high when 14 blacktip sharks came up close and personal to our guests.
It was a wonderful trip and we would like to thank our guests for being such a great and fun loving group, it made every day a pleasure. We hope to see you all again soon!
With best fishes and happy snorkelling
Tina & Oli and all the Bilikiki crew
