Chea

The actual process of packing up the business and personal household and moving it  to temporary quarters in nearby Chubikopi took 6 months.  In January, 2014, one full year after accepting the invitation, we moved finally into our permanent quarters on lovely Kahaini Island.  Our brand new guest house, owned by the Amos family and operated in cooperation  with Solomon Dive Adventures offers three guest rooms, comfortably accommodating six guests.

The advantages of our move to Chea are almost too many to name, both from an operator’s standpoint and from what we are able to offer our guests.  Our transportation problems have virtually disappeared; Seghe airstrip is a quick thirty minute run through the lovely lagoon, saving our guests valuable holiday time and approximately $4000 SBD in transport costs.  HMMM- that’s a lot of diving. For those who have the time to take the island ferries, they all stop right here.  We have phone service, a real store for when we run short of basic supplies,safe harbour for our boats no matter the weather and are closer to medical facilities.

Our biggest concern, obviously, was the quality of the diving we are able to offer our guests. We needn’t have worried.  To our great delight, as we explore the virgin diving in the area, we are finding magnificent diving- plunging walls, endless hard coral reefs that simply dazzle the senses, underwater valleys and ridges teeming with sharks and big fish, massive fans and sponges and a whole new world of animals.

A 5 minute paddle  from Chea, Kahaini Island, though small, is rich in life, both above and below the sea.  It boasts the most beautiful snorkeling imaginable, offering hard corals, seaweed gardens, sand beds busy with blind shrimp and their bulldozing gobies and ethereal mantis shrimp, and mangroves to round out the variety. Clown fish and their Spine Cheeked cousins abound. The super easy beach  diving, though shallow, features a fascinating system of “patch reefs” with a host of unusual characters, including colonies of the coveted mandarin fish.

Relax on the deck, or walk to the point, and enjoy the many birds that make the island their home, from the noisy parrots, to the mournful Kuru Kuru and the ever cheerful Willy Wagtails.

As we settle into our new home, we are anxious to share our new world with our diving friends.  We look forward  to having you with us.
