We stayed at Wananavu for 5 nights with a crew of three adults and eight high school students on an extraordinary adventure. Four kids were still finishing their dive certifications and the remainder were more experienced. We stayed in the villa at the top of the hill. This used to be the resort founder's house which shows in the attention to architectural detail. Young legs had no trouble with the walk up the hill. It was bit more effort for me.
Resort staff were absolutely fantastic and made us feel at home from the moment that we arrived. The diving with Trevor and his dive staff was superb. They did an excellent job of sending us on progressively more challenging dives as skills developed. Each day we were diving on coral pinnacles in the Bligh waters that rose from the bottom to within about 15 feet of the surface. This provided a great opportunity to dive deep and then slowly work our way towards the surface while viewing different levels of the pinnacles. Corals were beautiful and fish were abundant.
Some day I shall return to Fiji and spend more time getting to know its many islands and its wonderful people.
