Perhaps the last thing a traveling diver ever thinks about is bedbugs, so you can imagine Laurie McNeill's (Longmont, CO) surprise when which she discovered that the critters infested three cabins aboard the Komodo Aggressor in December. She is now on a three-month diving trip traveling throughout Asia, and says she "can't get rid of them." Not a trip souvenir we'd like to bring home. Anyhow, she said the crew, the food, and the diving were great.

If you're looking for a Caribbean land-based operation with good diving, consider Blackbird Caye Resort on Belize's Turneffe atoll. Our readers have always sung its praises, and S.D. Jackson (Orem, UT), who was there in December, reports "It is under new management, which is investing in new cabanas, equipment, etc., and have assembled an impressive team, all experienced, skilled, and with a friendly attitude." And, he liked the diving. "We saw large eagle rays on most every dive. Stingrays and rough tail rays were common. Large white spotted file fish, hogfish, and parrot fish were plentiful. The stars were the spotted toadfish, bur-fish, and mating squid. At two dives at Lighthouse Reef, we had some of the best diving in this hemisphere: exceptional, pristine coral reefs with plenty of wildlife including large, inquisitive gray reef sharks.
