Diving the Astrolabe Reef, Kadavu, Fiji - ScubaBoard

Hi all,

I flew back in from Fiji to Auckland this morning and already miss the awesome diving and time I had in Kadavu.

I was relaxing in the hammocks by the beach looking over the bay and about 60m out a 2m bronzie was chasing a ray. All I could see was the top of the shark really motoring and then the ray would JUMP out of the water at right-angles to the shark and head of only for the bronzie to turn around and go again. I presume it ended in tears for the ray as the shark suddenly stopped the chase and then headed out to sea. Either that or the ray managed to hook him with his tail. Pretty awesome and this was from a hammock!!!!

I didn't put this into the main story as some non-divers get put off by bronze whalers banging around the beach. . .

I have put the rest on my website complete with photos or just read the text here if you're interested.
