The Pleasure Sport is one of the nicest dive boats that I have been on and
PNG has some of the best diving I've seen. Coral, sponges, reefs and walls
are in excellent shape. Lots of fish both large and small. The downer is
getting there.  Because it takes some extra effort, it keeps the less
serious divers away. If I would have known beforehand, I would have taken
some pencils, crayons, books, magazines, fishhooks and line, etc  for the
natives that came to the boat every night after we tied up.
