Bilikiki is back from another great 10 day trip. On board this week we had Jupiter Diving Club, some returning guests from the USA and a guest from Australia. Thank you everyone for being such a happy group and for making this trip so interesting and fun!
Our dives were done around the Russell and Florida Islands, Marovo Lagoon and Mary Island and they were great! We had amazing sun light for Leru Cut and the magnificent coral gardens at Mirror Pond. A huge school of barracudas and big eye jacks awaited us at Mary Island and as always Marovo was simply exuberant with marine life! There was sharks, mobula rays, eagle rays, Jenkins ray, turtles, octopus, cuttlefish, decorated dart fish, scorpion leaf fish, bumphead wrasses, pygmy seahorses, common seahorses, pyjama cardinal fish, ghost pipe fish, a brief encounter with a manta ray and much more in these awesome 10 days of diving!
The carving markets were, as always, sensational, everyone was very pleased to meet the local artists and enjoyed the shopping very much. Of course the veggie markets were also a hit and Karumolun village visit was too! Their pan pipe performance delighted our guests as usual.... and at night, time was also filled with lots fun, we played a lot of Heads Up! It is a great game!
Thank you very much everyone for these days onboard! We had such a great time with you! Have a safe journey back home and we hope to see you back soon!
And for sure a big thank you to our crew for being such a great and caring crew! You are the best!
