Fiji Bommie

Fiji is the home of outrageously colourful and lively reefs. This is a wide angle view of the top of a coral bommie – a vertical, slim pinnacle that rises up from the sea floor. In parts of Fiji, these bommies are encrusted with both healthy hard corals and gorgeous soft coral gardens. Add to that beautiful scene swarms of orange and pink anthias, and you find yourself dropping your jaw a bit (hopefully not so much that your regulator falls out ;^) and just hanging there, sucking in the view.

This bommie was captured on a live aboard trip on the N’aia, one of the nicest boats we’ve had the pleasure to dive from. This picturesque site is in the northeast part of the Vatu-i-Ra waters – the strait between the large southern island of Viti Levu, and the large northern island of Vanua Levu.

About Judy G Diver

Born and raised on the west coast of Canada, I have always felt a strong connection to the sea. But for many years, I stayed on the surface, afraid of what lurked down deep. When I was in my early 30's, with three young children (aka the P's), my husband (aka Mr G) signed us up for a SCUBA certification course, as a surprise. Although I had my fears, my stubbornness prevailed, and somehow I made it through four murky, frigid, cold water dives in Vancouver to successfully pass the course. Soon after we went diving off the west coast of Mexico, in the Sea of Cortez, where my eyes were opened to the beauty and other-worldliness of the life down under. And the rest, as they say, is history. I currently have well over 2000 dives under the belt, and I have been fortunate to travel and dive in Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Fiji, Palau, Philippines, Galapagos, Costa Rica, Hawaii, California, Egypt, Mexico, several islands in the Caribbean, and here in British Columbia. In addition to this blog and my personal website (Awoosh.com/Directory), which is linked at the top of the blog, my stuff has been published in a variety of magazines and websites, including a regular monthly feature for Scubadiving Magazine for several years. All links to this work can be found in this blog.
