Fihalhohi March

After having a fantastic time at Fiha in September 05 we are returning in March 06. Just got my dollars today to starting to get just a tad excited about returning. Has anyone travelled on the new First Choice planes? We fly with Monarch last time (albeit with extra legroom seats) and were wondering what the seating & service is like on FC as we were unable to get the extra legroom seats. As my partner will be doing the diving course this time i will just be chilling and reading. Anyone else travelling out 07/03?

First choice flights are outstanding, we flew outward with monarch last time and it felt like a cattle truck compared to the return flight with first choice

Hi we are going in august so look forward to how it goes for you, i cant wait to try the flight with first choice as the monarch flight was frankly awful!

Please let us know if the snorkelling is good for kids, i am a bit concerned there is no pool cheers

We are keeping our fingers crossed for the new FCA planes - finding it really hard to find any reviews of the new planes yet. We don't have children, but saw quite a few children snorkelling. You do need to be careful of currents. I'm not a particularly strong swimmer and at times just had to go with the current which just took me a little further round the island. There is plenty of coral / fish maybe 80cms - 1metre depth to be seen if you dont want to go too far out and like to put your feet down (but not on the coral) The black tip reef sharks come in close to shore - i used to just sit on the sand with my face under and watch them swim rond me as chased their supper. The dive centre staff are fantastic and they will be able to give you advice about snorkelling and hopefully alleviate your concerns. Send them an email before you go as they will reply. Our tickets arrived this morning so the excitment is building. jane

i forgot to say, get some aqua shoes - you can pick them up reasonably on ebay - especially for the children as there are sharp bits of coral in the sand as you go into the water.
