Comments Loved the Anggun and the crew. The trip was twelve days without a repeat of dive sites except when requested. Diving was not particularly difficult. Service was excellent, food was good to excellent (and plentiful), weather was great. Tsunami was absolutely not a factor in any way. The after shock of late March also was a non-issue.

Some cold currents for several minutes during some dives. Take at least a 3 mil suit. A one night stay in Phuket after the trip would have been a good idea rather than waiting around to fly.

Word is that the Anggun is moving to Indonesia during the monsoon season. We would be return customers.
