Comments Peter Hughes just moved boat to Milne Bay. The itinerary is best suited to photographers interested in small critters.Diving was not as impressive and diverse as New Britain and New Ireland for me. Boat is a little tired and could use more than a short stay in dry dock.That said the staff was great and very accommodating. Lunch was plentiful and tasty,dinner was served but small portions and generally over cooked.
