Comments I have been to Indonesia before but not to Raja Ampat. It lived up to its reputation and more. The coral is very healthy and did not appear stressed. Lots of color for photography. Tons of schools of small fish, but only a few sharks and turtles. Water temps were around 83 -84.

The Raja Ampat Aggressor is a first class operation. The crew treated us like royalty. I tend to be a air hog so they equipped me with a 100 cu ft tank. When it did not fit my "travel BCD" they found another more suitable replacement. And then my Scubapro fin tore son they came up with another pair. They did this with no extra cost. We all dove our own profile and most dives were over one hour. They did require we surfaced with our buddy and with a surface sausage. Several of the dives had strong currents and required reef hooks. However, by far, most were relaxing and with no current.

We had such a good time our group booked another trip to western Indonesia with the Aggressor. There are many dive operators in the area that I am sure are nice but I can't give our crew enough praise.

Showers had lots of warm water. 4 dives a day.

UW Photo Comments This trip was a photographer's dream. Both macro and wide angle. I took over 2000 pictures. I took an extra housing and Canon camera that came in handy when my friend accidentally flooded his. Lots of work stations for camera set up. Had both 220 and 110 outlets.
