Nai’a Live aboard – Mar 14-21, 2020; Volivoli 21-28(+), 2020
We start from Home on Thursday 3/12 from FLL to Los Angeles (LAX) and continue later the same day to Nadi, Fiji. Airfare LAX-NAD is included at group rates. Business upgrade is available – but expensive. We spend the morning in Raffles airport hotel. We get picked up by Nai’a by van at 1 pm and board the boat mid afternoon. After a week of live aboard diving – Saturday 3/21 - we will go by van to Volivoli. That resort is completely rebuilt. We have all ground rooms – no hikes up the hill to get to your room. Next Saturday 3/28 – we will stay at the resort until it is time to take a van to the airport for our flight home; back in US early afternoon Saturday 3/28. When all transfers are by van there is no domestic luggage surcharge. We are traveling a little earlier in the season to get warmer waters than the last two times (2008 and 2015).

Signup Window - The primary signup period ended 8/31. If you signed up by that date the club will cover any potential “single supplement” – and we are extending that offer until we sell four more boat spots or until we can no longer add Fiji Airways seats. Note: unsold spots on Naia will be cancelled by Sept 10 - though we may get a "hurricane extension" from the boat. So if you are interested please act fast. We are holding 12 seats from LAX to Fiji – also only until 9/10.
As always, when you sign up for a trip, please consider trip insurance, especially since we do a boat payment on Sept 10 – that becomes non-refundable after that.
