Comments This was an outstanding trip. The boat is quite stable and comfortable and the food was good. An excellent (and sizeable) crew of Indonesians took care of our every need -- including shoulder massages after every dive! The divemasters were very good about finding a pointing out leaf fish, ornate ghost pipe fish, frog fish, squat lobster, pygmy seahorses, etc. This is macrophotographery heaven. Bali was an interesting and lovely place with friendly people. You feel very safe there - don't let geopolitical concerns keep you from going.
