The ladies are getting ready for dinner, Gigi is playing Portugal The Man, all is well. @sofitelfiji
Quick stop into the @sofitelfiji. Alas we won’t have time to get into this epic pool situation before dinner with friends... @fly_fijiairways
Easy low-level flight from Savusavu down to Nadi. Our pilot kept us low enough over the reefs on the way out so we could drool over the dive sites. Looking at Namena marine reserve from the air, you could dive twice a day every day for a year and still not see it all. @fly_fijiairways #fijilink
This is Dan, he’s been a Dive instructor here for 25yrs and gave us the greatest gift yesterday - a relaxed, fun and positive first experience diving for the girls. They are now hooked and can’t wait to get their open water scuba ticket. @jmcfijiresort @fly_fijiairways
Our last day at @jmcfijiresort, and we are sad to leave. The dive team have been incredible, personally trained by Jean-Michele himself. All the staff treat you like family, and after a quick chat turns out a few of them knew Audrey’s Mum’s family from her village nearby - so I guess Audrey is almost family anyway! @fly_fijiairways #oceanfuturessociety
You’d have this look on your face too if you were covered in anemone-proof mucus.
The symbiosis of the reef blows my mind in every way. Every animal helps another animal to live. Here the anemone protects the fish with its stinging tentacles warding off predators. The fish, coated in mucus to protect it from the sting returns the favour by eating bacteria and fungus that grow on the tentacles keeping the anemone clean and healthy. It’s the same everywhere - every creature has a job which helps another creature. It’s truly spectacular to witness.
Sad to leave today but excited for our next stop! @fly_fijiairways @jmcfijiresort #oceanfuturessociety.

Audrey: nice shirt honey it’s a... JESUS ARE YOU WEARING A BIN CHICKEN SHIRT TO DINNER?? Me: yes, yes I am.
I wanted to tell you the one about the Scuba diver, but it’s so bad it will make you eel.
We named this guy Geoff after our dive master. He was about the girth of a rugby ball on its end and at least 2m long. Good looking guy, terrible jokes though. @fly_fijiairways @jmcfijiresort #oceanfuturessociety
I was trying to shoot these corals, when who cruises through the back of shot by Georgia and her mate Bronte. Dani and his team took them for a brilliant discovery dive. Their smiles back on board were the best part of the day! 🏝😌
Behold one of my banner men! The Banner Fish of the house Vanua-Levu. The girls just did their intro dive in the pool so next dive is with the whole family! ❤️👌🏻🏝#oceanfuturessociety @fly_fijiairways @jmcfijiresort
This guy was a bit sluggish on the sea floor today. He was as big as two loaves of bread. @fly_fijiairways @oceanfuturessociety @jmcfijiresort
I love these fish. They’re super cute but always give you the “Wot U looking at?” eyes. Another stunning undersea adventure day at @jmcfijiresort @fly_fijiairways @oceanfuturessociety

Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me... @audreygriffen @jmcfijiresort @fly_fijiairways @oceanfuturessociety
Adventures with @audreygriffen are the greatest. We checked out The Chimneys in Namena today, incredible. @jmcfijiresort @fly_fijiairways @oceanfuturessociety
