Since 2014 we stay and do our lab work at Ikari House. We also use their boat called 4X which is the islands largest fiberglass boat. Tababa is our favorite boat driver and we think he enjoys driving us around because he laughs at us a lot although he does not say much else. We have become friends with the owners and the staff of Ikari and we are always excited to see them again on each trip.
Before 2014 the team stayed at Dive Kiribati and dove on their boat. We are still friends with Anime, the owner, and continue to rent our tanks from her. The tanks are filled at a local aquarium fish business who we enjoy working with.
