We went out on the Perfect Day boat. even though i only snorkelled not scuba it was incredible. I saw so many beautiful plant and fish life. On the way we saw a giant sunfish lolling around. I want to go back definitely.

We went to the Poor Knights dive sites as they are rated some of the best in the world. My husband and I are both professional divers and have worked in Fiji. We were a little disappointed as there was not much marine life around and both dives were just big kelp gardens really. I think we have just been a bit spoilt in Fiji but I would have expected a lot more from a ton ten dive site. It was however a different experience for us and we haven't dived anything like it before but we wont be going back in a hurry.
