A LITTLE CROWDED IF ALL DIVERS ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS, BUT THE CREW WAS PUTTING
SOME THOUGHT INTO BETTER ACCOMODATING PHOTOGRAPHERS. NO E-6 PROCESSING,
WELCOME TO THE DIGITAL AGE.

THIS IS THE MOST COMFORTABLE BOAT THAT I HAVE HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE TO DIVE
FROM.  FOOD WAS GOURMET, WITH THE PRESENTATION OF A FIVE STAR RESTAURANT.
STAFF WAS SUPER FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.  DIVE CREW UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF
TH  ONE AND ONLY LARRY SMITH WAS TERRIFIC. OF COURSE DIVING WITH LARRY
SMITH IS AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME. HE CAN ALWAYS FIND THE MOST UNUSUAL
AND SURPRISING CRITTERS. I MOST CERTAINLY SAW CRITTERS THAT I HAVE NEVER
SEEN BEFORE AND PROBABLY WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN.
OUR TRIP LEFT FROM BALI AND TRAVELED THROUGH KOMODO AND ON TO KUPANG ON
TIMOR WHERE WE LEFT THE BOAT AND FLEW BACK TO BALI. THE ONLY DISAPPOINTING
ASPECT OF THE TRIP WAS THE FISH BOMBING DAMAGE IN WHAT WAS ONCE THE
PRISTINE REEFS OF SUMBA AND SAVU. MY ONLY REGRET WAS THAT I COULD NOT
CONTINUE ON AS THE BOAT MADE ITS WAY TO RADJA EMPAT IN IRIAN JAYA. PS THE
BALINESE ARE GREAT AND THEY ARE WANT THE AMERICANS BACK. DON'T GIVE IN TO
THE TERRORISTS.
