SPTO Marketing Manager Alisi reignites her passion for diving with the Sharks

On November 12th, 2018 on a rainy and cold day in Suva, I drove up early to Pacific Harbour with my childhood friend Una who was on holiday from Australia. We were going to do the shark dive and it wasn’t the first time for the both of us. The weather that Monday morning wasn’t very promising and it seemed like there was going to be a mini-cyclone or somewhat developing into one. This was the usual Suva weather but then again we were into the cyclone season, so anything was possible.
