Waiting on an extension for 3 weeks beyond 4 months.
Inside the reef at Foa. No whales yet today.
Left Neiafu at 3.00am. No wind. Then slowly picked up to 10 N till 10.00 when it went S 10. Whales everywhere. Almost collided one. About 10m off the bow when he dived.
Now in Ha'ano. Whales coming right out of the water as we came in. Then one huge mother and calf sat within 50 metres of us at anchor for about 3 hours.
Caught one wahoo maybe 20kg. Freezer full.
Pete n Lou.
Heading for Hanao tomorrow. 3.00am. Looks like a very gentle SSE??
Waiting for northerly to head to Hapaias.
We soon head back down through the Ha'apai to nuku'aloka. Should leave Neiafu early September and be ready to leave nuku'aloka early October to head back to Opua.
Will need fuel at nuku'aloka but the fuel company will only bring the tanker if you want 1000 ltrs. We only need 600 ltrs.
If any other boats intend leaving nuku'aloka around 6 October and want fuel could you contact us. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
