Hitching A Ride To Makogai Island?



A long shot but it canít hurt to ask ...
Will be in Fiji for a week from January 23, 2018 and would love to visit the old leper colony on Makogai, in the Lomaiviti chain. Unfortunately, a private vessel is the easiest way to get there.
So ... if youíll be in the area then and fancy a day trip to this fascinating site, my boyfriend and I would be very keen to tag along.
Weíre more than willing to offer some financial incentive and/or help with costs. Am also happy to organise the permits and provide the required sevusevu.
For more information on the island and its history, check out this Cruise Of The Ladybug blog post.

We were there a few weeks ago and unfortunately most of it has been destroyed by the last hurricane. There is nothing to see except for the graveyard now - not sure it is worth a trip.
