2009 - Simon Darker and Harry Hunter (Think Pacific )
The idea to create Think Pacific began almost a decade ago, as Simon and Harry left Heathrow for the farthest corner of the globe.They embarked on our own adventure of a lifetime, covering thousands of miles to the outer islands of Fiji.
After months of planning and poring over maps and guide books, we were leaving home with the strange anticipation and buzz of excitement you could only get from venturing into the unknown. Their experiences from then on were immense, and beyond anything they could have imagined. They became part of a way of life so unbelievably different from what they were used to that, at the end of their stay, they were very reluctant to leave.

They've been exploring this remote island paradise ever since; volunteering, teaching, coaching, diving, sailing and immersing ourselves in the Fijian way of life. You could say they're the Pacific professionals, the specialists of the South Seas, an authority on archipelagos or the connoisseurs of castaway island life!
Think Pacific was born out of Simon and Harrys passion for the culture, customs, islands and people of this beautiful corner of the earth. Their aim was to create a small and personal company, an organisation which works with Fijian partners to achieve ethical, responsible and sustainable development in the poorest islands of the South Seas.
