Vast quantities of colorful, strange and exotic critters.  Hard and soft
corals were very healthy, colorful and varied.  Not many pelagics, but
heaps of smaller fish on every dive.  This area has many fish that are
hardly seen elsewhere: frogfish, ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorses, leaf
fish, crocodile fish, cardinalfish.  Many small ornate crabs and shrimp,
octopus, cuttlefish, etc.  The dive operations was run very well with
helpful friendly staff, boat crew, divemasters.  Really liked the
Indonesian food.  There were 4 - 5 dives every day of the week.  Nitrox
available on boat, which really helped for so many dives.
