Mai Dive is a very special place. With good contact with Danielle prior to arriving we felt like we were arriving to a village in itself. Simple elegant cabins with only screens to the sea breeze, mosquito nets, lovely soft beds and outdoor showers. Jason and Danielle were great hosts and have a fabulous team of people working with them. I had not dived for 18 years and both Jason and Petero, a master diver, were reassuring after such a long break. The diving was great - fabulous coral ,great bommies, fantastic caves and tunnels and abundant fish life. Snorkling directly off the beach (in progress to be a marine reserve) was just as rich in fish, as were the snorkling trips we made to the Astrolabe reef - 5 minutes by boat directly out from Mai Dive. An incredible experience was snorkling with the manta rays- amazing to be up close to such magnificent graceful creatures.
We spent a wonderful Friday eve at Narikoso village with a kava ceremony and dancing both by the villagers and (hilariously) ourselves. We felt privileged to visit and will long remember it.
The food by by the gorgeous girls in the kitchen, Filo, Ma, La and Ana was delicious- amazing cakes and doughnuts, fresh fish and curries- divine! Joe, Jasons dad has created, amongst much else, a huge organic vegetable garden which we enjoyed the fruits of, and flitered the natural spring water which is so much better than anything you would get from a bottle. We thank Joe, Jason and Danielle for such a wonderful stay ,we were so well looked after and we will most definately return.
