I have made two trips to Fiji, in 1999 and 2001. Fiji has some incredible diving and some of the happiest, most hospitable people on the earth. The Fijians truly welcome visitors and do their best to make them feel at home. The world would be a much better place if everyone had a Fijian philosophy!

All photos were taken with a Nikon N90 film camera in a Nexus housing and a Olympus 4040 digital camera in a Tetra housing. Underwater light was provided by two Sea & Sea YS-120 strobes.

The South Pacific is known for an unusual eel called a Blue Ribbon Eel. These eels are very slender, usually
only as big around as your thumb, but they can grow up to 5 feet long. Most of their body stays hidden in
the reef. As you can see they have incredible coloration and really dress up an already beautiful reef.
