Its been 2 yrs in the making, and the reality of what we are about to embark on is upon us. Fiji, i can honestly say there is no place on earth like it, the people make the place. Time is not checked on your watch, it's dictated buy the sunrise and sunset, midday notifies the body with a rumbling stomach.
In 3 weeks time i will set of on an adventure like no other. Heading deep into Pacific the Lau group Fiji Archipelago. Where most fish haven’t seen a lure or heard an engine, where footprint-free sand bays and tropical jungle meet one another.
My last experience of this region was nothing short of mind blowing, the amount of fish patrolling the reef edges, the coral reef and the pacific jungle palm trees that line the untouched beaches, a paradise, a gift from The Mataqali (Clan) of Dakuicake to co owner Chad of Oceansouldiers.
This is where OceanSouldiers will have a base camp, a place we call home.
Amanzi -Wai (the camp) will begin construction late May 2016 we have 4 months to construct our little piece of history in the making, it will eventually be a fully sustainable eco operation, running on solar and natural water sourced from a well, with some of the best fishing on the doorstep. Mixed in with two life-long mates and their skills, setting a plan to make it a world-class sport-fishing operation.
We have a few very exiting projects in the pipeline when it comes to giving back to the community, a high-end sport-fishing training facility to enable local Fijians kids to follow their passions just like we have, the opportunity to travel and become some of the best sport-fishing guides in the world. A solid conservation program to enable the sustainability of this land and the ocean in which we operate, so we can preserve it for centuries to come and a bad ass sport-fishing operation run by the OceanSouldiers.
As we embark on this amazing adventure we will be doing an OCS Recce with weekly blogs and video-logs to keep you up-to-date with the progress and the action going on.
Stay tuned Cpt. Chad
