Comments [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.
