Manager’s Blog - October 1-15, 2019
Bilikiki is back after a great 14 day trip, this time we had a group of guests coming from many different parts of the globe. Some of the guests had already been on board before and some of them just had their first Bilikiki experience! Thank you all for choosing us for your holiday time!
During the 14 days we dove at different locations in Marovo Lagoon, the Russells Islands, Mary Island, the Florida Islands and Guadalcanal. The weather was excellent and the seas were very generous with us, offering a big variety of marine life and pristine coral reefs. We saw so many things from the small stuff like Denise pygmy seahorses, common seahorses, pygmy pipehorses, different types of ghost pipefish, bobtail squid, mimic octopus, dwarf cuttlefish, lobsters, turtles, orang-utan crabs, soft coral crabs, leaf scorpionfish, spiny devil fish and flame angel fish, to the bigger things like black tip, white tip, silver tip, leopard, grey reef and silky sharks, mobula and eagle rays, barracudas, bumpheads, big eye jacks, schools of spadefish and of course our favourite mid-sized anemone fish Megatron! It was sooooo amazing to see so many wonderful things!!
Everyone enjoyed stepping ashore on the islands of Mbili, Telina and Peava for the carving markets and once more at Karumolun for the singing and dancing - that was a big hit! We were all asked again to join in a circle for singing and dancing with the locals and everyone felt very happy and privileged for sharing that special moment.
It has been a great pleasure to have you all onboard, we wish you safe travels back home and hope to see you again soon!
And last but not least, thanks a lot to our wonderful crew for doing such an amazing job and for taking such good care of all our guests!
