After a very busy week in Suva we are back in clear water!s The lagoon that is partially sheltered by the Astrolabe Reef contains the main island of Kadavu, but also a few smaller islands to the north. Here’s Pitufa anchored off the Alacrity Rocks with the west coast of Ono in the background

Warm welcome in Ono!

Last week we finally finished our errands in Suva and we really wanted to get out of the harbour again and into clear water. But where to go? The weather forecast showed strong east-south-east winds until the end of time (meaning 10 days ahead in our model) and that’s not south enough to make it to the northern Lau islands, but also not east enough… Continue reading »

Download our brochure about sustainable fishing

Are you tired of watching helplessly as mother earth gets worse every day? If you’re out here in the Pacific area and you encounter empty reefs, then download our brochure, print it out and take it with you when you visit villages here in Fiji (or other parts of the Pacific).

In the traditional islands of the Lau group you then get a host family and it’s a very nice cultural… Continue reading »

Holidays in wonderland

The weather is still rather cool, but we’re using the sunny days here in Fulaga to go snorkeling in the fabulous pass and explore the wonderland of mushrooms islands by kayak. After an extended time of health issues and work projects it’s good to be out and about again… Fulaga is a raised atoll, so what used to be the outer reef and coral heads… Continue reading »

Sailing eastwards to the Lau

Finally we are underway to the Lau Islands again! The past few days have flown by in a flurry of boat projects, shopping, organising, meeting people, while keeping an eye on the ever-changing weather forecasts… What looked like a nice weather window with NE winds to sail SEwards turned into a nasty front, too short to actually reach our destination. We have postponed our departure… Continue reading »
