We can now add Hayley to our family of Ratu Kini PADI Rescue Divers. Congratulations on completing the course and getting your certification Hayley! Maciu was volunteered as the terrible diver that she had to constantly rescue. As Hayley found during the course, if the mouth to mouth doesn't work there are always other ways to revive the unresponsive diver rescue 1 rescue 2 rescue 3

Awesome diving this afternoon at Turtle Patch with Smitty. The turtles were out in force today. At least 4 different sightings at different points on the dive, but definitely not the same turtle each time. Water is still a beautiful 29 degreesC and the vis was around 15m but expect it to keep getting better as the week progresses.

Congratulations Kateryna!!

Super awesome effort by our newest PADI Open Water student Kateryna who finished her course this morning! While doing her course she managed to see Grey Reef and White Tip Reef Sharks, Spotted Garden Eels, Anemone Fish and the other 100's of tropical fish in the clear waters that we dive here. Also had Snorri and Heiddis out with us to The Supermarket checking out the sharks. Awesome to dive with you guys. Come back soon!

We love our sharks!

Here at Ratu Kini we love it when we see sharks on our dives. The grace and beauty of these underwater predators is just something special. The opposition to shark finning has been growing in the previous few years, but we can still do more. Let us know what you think.
Join the dabate: The world's population of Sharks has decreased 50% in the past 15 year due to Shark finning. Why is this still legal? Give us you opinion

Well done to Grant our newest PADI Open Water diver! Had a brilliant last dive at The Supermarket seeing Grey and Whitetip Reef Sharks and a cute little Green Turtle. You have another sport to keep you busy now whenever the waves are not pumping. Hopefully the break between coming back to Mana will not be as big as last time.
