Papua Explorers, Raja Ampat, Indonesia, 03/2017
Raja Ampat is a series of islands at the western end of West Papua and as such is about as remote as you can get. However, it's the epi-center of the world's coral reef diversity and as such a must-go-to destination for every diver. Most prefer the liveaboard solution but it's possible to be island based too. Our reader visited Papua Explorers and reckons it's worth the time and expense of getting there. You can read-it-for-free in this month's   Read more >

Editor's Pick of the month

Shark Bytes Shark Bytes
by John Bantin

John Bantin, who writes often, wittily and thoroughly about diving for Undercurrent, just had his second book published -- Shark Bytes, his personal stories and first-hand descriptions and anecdotes of over 30 years of diving with and photographing sharks. "I don't offer myself as an expert regarding sharks," Bantin says. "I simply offer myself as a shark witness, and in Shark Bytes, I delve into the way my own attitude to and understanding of sharks has developed during the intervening years. It's about how I grew to love diving with sharks."
