P.N.G. is a 1 to 2 days of travel time. watch your luggage weight.Traveled
with Blue Horizion Dive shop out of Philadelphia P.A. Nick and Beth put on
a spectacular trip and did a fine job with travel arrangements.The weather
was warm and the seas relatively calm.The Fabrina is an older boat thats
well maintained. It is 75 ft. long. The accomdations are not 5 star (Dancer
Aggressor) but the crew and phenomenal diving easily compensate for any
lack of ammenities. The boat hods 18 but was comfotable with 12. Captian Al
(owner) is an Aussie who has been in P.N.G. for 20 yrs. and is very
knowledgable.He also is a salty dog so the meek and easily offended so stay
home.We started muck diving in Rabul at the pier,lion fish ,octopus and
lots of small strange critters.We srent the next 6 days traveling down the
coast to Walinda. Along the way we dove walls,some shallow reefs and
bommies which are pinnicles.The variety and volume of fish and corals was
astounding when compared to the Caribbean. Everyone had the fish books out
Large schools of baracuda,jacks,batand bait fish.Also saw a whale ,sharks
and dolphins.
