This was the second trip to PNG for my mother and myself, organized by
Uncommon Adventures in Southern CA (who organized prior trips to PNG and
Galapagos / Jim,, very knowledgeable).  Initially booked on Peter Hughes
boat then which was in for repair and so changed to liveaboard The
Febrina...what luck.  Usually liveaboard has been on larger boat i.e. Mike
Ball.  The boat had 8 guests including ourselves (could hold 12-14, AC and
showers worked well, we had owners suite and cabin adjacent. The personal
attention from the crew and captain, combined with the superlative diving
found in PNG made this an unforgettable trip.  I could not recommend the
boat more.  

One could dive up to 5 times a day for 6.5 days on a 8 day trip from
Wallindi Plantation to Rabual.  Hugely diverse coral, fish, photo ops, you
name it.  We included trip to Highlands at Ambua Lodge on this trip,, the
year prior to Carrawary Lodge on the Sepic,,  both a 'must do' if you are
schlepping this far. This trip we started in Australia for a Minke Whale
trip with Mike Ball.

Again,, go on the Febrina and check if captain Allen is going to be on the
trip,,,  unforgettable.
