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.
