This is a first class vessel in a fantastic destination; once the journey's
out of the way it's very relaxing! Full service diving & boat.

Diving is mixed (variety not in quality) good fish life, great reefs, walls
and some of the best coral gardens around, manta cleaning stations etc.
Numerous macro oppportunities from numerous pygmy seahorse of different
species (bargibanti, denise, pontohi) xenocrab, blue ring etc; would
personally prefer more muck dives but those we did were excellent - 6
frogfish on one night dive along with Raja Epaullette shark, flamboyant
cuttlefish & many other (un)usual suspects.

See website for details - previously with Peter Hughes then Dancer Fleet -
now just become an indendent operation.

This was our third trip on board - one other in Raja & the second
around Sulawesi. Will be booking again in 2012 & 2013 - can't recommend
more highly. The service is exceptional, great cabins, sundecks &
