We were disappointed as far as seeing pelagics, only a lone shark or turtle
showed up. The macro was very good however. The sea fans and soft corals
are magnificent. We used reef hooks on several of the strong current
dives....what a great way to watch the huge schools of jacks, tuna and
barracudas! We searched repeatedly for the pygmy seahorse but didn't see
one. I was lucky to see the elusive shrimpgobie on a dive at White Beach.
 The crew couldn't have been better which compensated for the age of the
boat. Meals were plentiful and satisfied the needs of the health conscious
eaters as well as the picky ones.
 I'd go back to PNG before I'd return to the Solomons, however, better
cluck for the buck.
