FIJI Jan 17-27, 2008 Fun In Jungle Island got off to a “well it does happen sometimes” start! We flew in on the tail end of a cyclone, had rough cloudy waters the first day or two BUT I can say it got better every single day!! Blue Ribbon eels, lion fish, and creatures both great and small! The Big Fish (read: SHARKS) Dive was the “best ever” according to many in the group! A tropical paradise coupled with friends both – new and old – Kava, FireWalkers, Coconuts and native song and dance immersed us in the culture as well as the sea! Who’s going with us the NEXT TIME?
Oct 13-20, 2007
How do you describe a trip with born adventurers? EXCITING and NON-STOP!! This group could not get enough of the underwater adventure and the top side activities! WOW!! From brand new to seasoned experience, it was a trip for everyone to remember! We explored both the north and south dive sites PLUS a venture to the east windward Wild Side. Check out Larry’s Wild Side Diving for a new way to experience Bonaire’s rich diving! And sunset sailing on the Bowalie topped the week off with a soothing cocktail cruise. We’ll be back Larry, Walter and Liezeth! AND… Happy Anniversary, Robert and Suzanne! Best wishes for many more!
Lady Go DIvers in BONAIRE
July 21-28, 2007
As always, the Lady GoDivers had their usual intrepid fun!! What a dynamic group of women! How can you go to an island known for its Flamingo and Donkey Preserves, with an airport called Flamingo Airport and not honor the icon? Well, we made ourselves know with flamboyant headgear and outrageous fun! AND YES – we did DIVE too!!! After all – “it’s what we do!” Days were spent diving, shopping, reading, exploring, kayaking… Evenings were spent experiencing the wonderful cuisine of the
Island and reconnecting with friends Corinna and Hagan at the Blue Cactus restaurant. Good Fun, Good Friends, Too Little Time! SO… let’s do it again NEXT YEAR – on the Utila Aggressor!
December 27, 2006 – January 3, 2006
visibility suffered a bit due to the windy seas but the walls and reefs were still spectacular, the photo ops were fantastic (check out the Photo Page!), and, of course, the new friends we make every time we travel were absolutely delightful Thanks to Ron and Dottie for their direction and care on the boat and the entire
staff for making this all-inclusive resort a true get away!! (Adrianne – get well soon!)
Jan 28 – Feb 4, 2007
Well… Pirate Patty’s Palau Posse made quite a fun group for this memorable trip! It was the epitome of the Aggressor Fleet’s slogan – “Eat, Sleep, Dive”! (We still think ‘Read’ needs to be included in there as well!) But we did hold up our end on the slogan. And what a wonderful varied mix of dive conditions: wrecks, drifts, calm, night, MACH 1 current!!! WOW!!!
We had the whole boat to ourselves and it was a fun reunion for many who had not been able to dive together for awhile as well as welcome some new faces to the group. The group of seasoned divers was an absolute delight to have together for a long flight over, an incredibly fun week, and even for the longer (it seemed anyway) trip home. However, I doubt anyone will soon forgive all the photos taken during the week – but bet they enjoy them at home later!!
We enjoyed creatures and varieties not seen in our closer Caribbean Sea as well as a closer look at things we just don’t see often enough! We experienced Palau at its finest, I believe. Sharks (including a Leopard shark!), Turtles and Bat fish, Eagle and Manta Rays, Mandarin fish, plus a long yellow, unfurled “banner fish” that followed Mary quite closely for a bit! We moored at Ulong, site of “Survivor: Palau” and did a sea tour of the Rock Islands. Weather prohibited hitting all the prime dive sites but did get to the classics: Blue Corner (several times), German and Ulong Channels, Jelly Fish Lake, Chandelier Cave plus a couple of WWII wrecks in the area. (Now I want to return to Truk Lagoon! Who’s up for THAT trip? Just tell me WHEN!)
In addition to the diving fun, do I dare mention: Birthdays, Tattoos, Showers, Sharks, School Pride (Go SHOCKERS!), Hammerhead dancing and Howling at the Moon!
After all, we had a reputation to uphold as many of us had been diving with Mike and Amanda when they were on the Kona Aggressor.
December 27, 2006 – January 3, 2006
This was a long overdue return to a favorite destination! Despite some rough water at the beginning of the week, Jackson’s Bight and Bloody Bay Wall lived up to our expectations. Little Cayman Beach Resort is still one of the greats for taking care of divers and making sure each diver (and non-diver as well) has the best time possible. The visibility suffered a bit due to the windy seas but the walls and reefs were still spectacular, the photo ops were fantastic (check out the Photo Page!), and, of course, the new friends we make every time we travel were absolutely delightful
Thanks to Ron and Dottie for their direction and care on the boat and the entire staff for making this all-inclusive resort a true get away!! (Adrianne – get well soon!)
