[None]It rained 7 of 10 days. One needs to be accepting of the adversities
attendant to adventure to travel in PNG. Despite the weather the diving was
excellent. In my opinion the operators did everything they could to see
that there were good diving opportunities every day. They accepted
suggestions about dive sites from the customers. The fellas that worked on
the boats were excellent in everyway. They were fantastic at locating the
strange small creatures (if you want to see evolution run wild this is the
place for you), they were very helpful with the equipment and they were
kind and respectful with anyone who needed assistance.The whole staff is
very customer friendly. The resort itself is sited in a beautiful remote
spot. In all honesty, I'm not sure I would return there (only because I'm
not that interested in muckdiving and the little animals), but, I will
always cherish the memories of our trip there.
