Comments It was the first live-a-board trip for my son and I. I can't imagine it being much nicer. The boat was much more comfortable than I expected and the food was good, plentiful and with good variety. My son who is a vegetarian would have liked more creativity. Karl and Linda, who headed the trip were great. Very helpful spotting creatures and fun to be around. The quality of the coral and the variety of small tropicals and strange creatures was beyond anything I would have imaginaged. There were a couple spots where currents were very strong. Possibly a little more info during the briefings, would have made things easier. The trip to Rinca to see the Komodo Dragons was great. We were able to go ashore on several islands when not diving and hike around. This added a nice variety. We saw a few sharks and barracuda, but the stars were the small critters and a wonderful group of Mantas at Manta Reef. This is a great trip and I am now hooked on live-a-boards and am looking forward to their trip to Irian Jaya.
