"The 90 meter three masted schooner 'Athena' spent several months in the beautiful waters of Fiji during 2010. She cruised far and wide in the group and the widely travelled owners rated one of their finest cruises to date. So did the crew!
Operating a large vessel such as ours in remote locations is never a simple task and there are many logistical challenges to overcome. We firmly believe that the team at Baobab Marine gave us the necessary back up, local knowledge, and above all the commitment to see things done correctly and done promptly. In an area known for its relaxed 'island time' pace it was nice to see that things could happen quickly when required.
We had some mechanical issues with our tenders when away from the main centres and Michelle and Brian and their team were instrumental in sourcing the necessary spares and arranging their transport to a remote reef in the Lomaiviti Group.
We eat well onboard 'Athena' and Dee competently liaised with our chefs to ensure fresh produce reached the ship when required. She also advised us on the various attractions and entertainments available in the villages.
As a superyacht destination, the Fijian Islands have now been discovered and should you ever want to experience a little slice of the south Pacific paradise then you would be hard pressed to find a better shore support crew than Baobab Marine.
