My name is Connie Quee, and I'm on the Oct.31st Fiji trip. My home is Iowa, and my passion is snorkeling in the USVI and BVI, so this is my chance to try the Pacific. I'm looking forward to meeting fellow travelers with the same interests. See you soon.

We have cancelled our trip

Hello fellow travelers..
Im going next month Oct 31st.Have never been to Fiji and Im beyond excited about the trip! Anyone else heading out the same time?
I see from previous comments we may need a wet suit...I have one for cold water diving on California's North Coast. Water temps there run 50-55 degrees.
Margaret Asrani Sep 26, 2015 at 05:44 PM

We cancelled our trip. It is a good idea to take a wet suit

Janet Stoerkel Jun 26, 2015 at 08:32 AM

Hi..I am taking the Feb.13-23,2016 trip from Jacksonville, FL and looking to chat with someone taking the same trip. here is my e-mail .. jstoerkel@windstream.net

We have Diving & Snorkeling Guide to Fiji ($5) and Fiji's Natural Heritage ($30) available. We found them an interesting read but as we have returned from our trip, we no longer need them. Email me at ann.moffat@tds.net if you are interested.

Richard Treiber Oct 29, 2014 at 04:04 PM

We just returned from our trip. We HIGHLY recommend a 3mm full wet suit like we brought (because an Fiji experienced dive shop owner recommended it). People without a suit or with short suits were consistently cold (many rented suits once we got to Paradise Teveuni). If you already have a short suit, consider a hood.

BTW, good underwater photography requires a strong flash to get colors right.

I just bought a Fuji xp70. Tried it in the pool. Got it sent to the local Walmart for $169. Tried it in the pool last week. So far, so good. Ordered extra batteries and plug-in charger form Amazon. Hasn't arrived yet. Isn't it disappointing that the biggest complaint about underwater cameras is leaking!!!!!!!!!! Can let you know if it holds up when I get back after Nov 11. 5 more days! :) As for the wet suit, see my post below. Bound to get cold if you stay in the water long enough. Kitty

Margaret Asrani Oct 26, 2014 at 05:25 PM

What kind of water camera should I bring? I do not have one.
