    Roxanne, could you give me a little more information about this statement you wrote:

    "A gear bag (one with wheels would be great) to help you transport your gear back and forth from the dive shop area to the shore diving area or to your room."

    Having never been to either resort, I'm wondering what a wheeled gear bag would be rolling over when going to/from the room to the dive shop or from the dive shop to the shore dive area. Are there concrete pathways? Sand pathways? Grass pathways? I love my rolling gear bag but in some situations it doesn't roll real well...like on sand or gravel pathways. I want to make sure I bring an appropriate bag for this awesome trip.

    If we bring a rolling bag, can we leave it in a secure place in the dive shop? Unless my bag can levitate, I won't be taking it onto the boat since we need to walk through the water to board.:):)

    Thanks for all you're doing to get us ready for Fiji!

    You are very welcome!


    Wheeled bags are just a suggestion for those who don't wish to carry their gear. Any kind of gear bag would be fine or you can just put your BCD on and carry the rest of your gear in your hands. Once your gear is at the dive shop, you won't need to worry until it's time to go on to the next location.

    I like a rolling bag because it's easier on my back. So the terrain is condusive to wheeled bags?

    You'll find varying paths from wood, to concrete, to hard soil.
    I've also added the Resort Maps to the Initial posts.


    They accept either for their Christmas Fund (Tipping), no preference as long as it's cash.

    Thanks, Roxanne, for the info about the paths. From the maps, I couldn't discern whether the brown paths were soil or wood.
