You can travel to Indonesia or PNG and (perhaps) see most of the same
critters, but in nothing like the comfort nor at the price of this
excellent resort

One of the very best resorts visited in 30 yrs of diving. Surprisingly easy
to get to via Philppines Airlines. Join Mabuhay Miles & Sport Plus
(online) to get major overweight baggage discount. Superb food served to
you at tables by cheerful, charming waitstaff. Many menu choices which
change every day and cater to meat eaters and veggies too. Casual
restaurant and bar with excellent sea view. Airconditioned large rooms, hot
water showers, hammock & drying areas. Shady pool and garden w/few
insects. Dive prep area is very large w/lockers and very helpful staff.
Nitrox and camera room. Multiple covered panga style boats; not too
crowded. Also 6-pack boat. Excellent house reef: sea horss, sea moths and
other weird critters. Most dive sites 5-10 mins. Island walls 20 mins away.
A great balance of top-notch resort and great critters. I will go back.
Also available: Local support for tech diving (stages, O2, helium,
rebreathers, training)by Matt Reed of Triton Tech Diving
