      Great dive trip! Crew was outstanding! Special thanks to Jan, Susana,
and Dewa. Great weather except for rain the last two days. Boat layout in
common areas was good, but below deck guest quarters were cramped. The boat
did spring some leaks once it started raining. Try and book the owner's
cabin (we did). Good and plentiful food and fabulous service. All drinks,
including alcohol and soda, are included. This is a trip to see fantastic
soft and hard corals as well as tropical fish and small unusual critters.
This is not the place to go if you want to see big stuff. We saw all kinds
of beautiful nudibranchs and flatworms, harlequin ghost pipefish, pigmy sea
horses, mantis shrimp, leaf scorpion fish, frog fish, every imaginable
scorpion fish, demon stingers, harlequin shrimp, huge Spanish dancers with
their imperial shrimp, arrow crabs, shrimp gobies with their very colorful
shrimp, sea apples, sea cucumbers, coleman shrimp and zebra crabs on fire
urchin, white eyed eels, snake eels, blueribbon eels, stargazers, mimic
octopus, etc etc etc. It truly was unbelievable and a must trip for all of
you that like beautiful coral and small critters. Also, spend some time on
Bali. Their tourist trade dropped close to zero after the Kuta bombings. We
had a wonderful time. We bought all kinds of great stuff at good prices.
One last thing--bring stuff for the crew. Simple stuff such as hats,
t-shirts, shorts, old dive equipment are genuinely appreciated. The crew
really work their butts off for you and make the trip a great experience.
