UPDATE: 4/9/17

     Eric Kaye of New Paltz is planning a dive trip to the Lembeh Straits and Bunaken in Sulawesi during the first week of July 2017 for 8 nights plus flights.
The most likely time of leaving would be June 28, and returning July 8. We would be spending 4 nights at each place.

     Anyone interested in joining us? We’ve got 3 divers already likely.

     We are eally looking forward to Lembeh, and are dying to see all the cephalopods. Wonderpus, blue-ringed octopus, hairy octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish…

From Wikipedia: Fiji is an archipelago of more than 330 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of about 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Ono-i-Lau. The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of almost 860,000. The capital, Suva on Viti Levu, serves as Fiji's principal cruise port.[11] About three-quarters of Fijians live on Viti Levu's coasts, either in Suva or in smaller urban centres like Nadi (tourism)[11] or Lautoka (sugar cane industry). Viti Levu's interior is sparsely inhabited due to its terrain.[12]
Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific due to an abundance of forest, mineral, and fish resources. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange are its tourist industry and sugar exports.[2] The country's currency is the Fijian dollar. Fiji's local government, in the form of city and town councils, is supervised by the Ministry of Local Government and Urban Development.[13]
The majority of Fiji's islands were formed through volcanic activity starting around 150 million years ago. Today, some geothermal activity still occurs on the islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni.
