Comments ]Everything about this dive trip was top notch from the rooms, the food, the dive prep area and the dive crew. The boats were a bit old and well used but not unsafe. The soft coral was the healthiest and most colorful that I have ever seen! I am not very good at estimating visibility but the clarity was like a glass of drinking water!! The fish life was abundant; huge schools. There were so many kinds of reef fish that it was almost easier to name the ones you didn't see. The Manta Ray dives were astonishing! The Misool Manta Project seems to be very successful as the rays are always sighted. I adopted one and will be notified when it is sighted again at the cleaning station.
The island is so isolated and unspoiled that you get there on a 4 1/2 hour boat ride which is a little wearing but as we all know the more difficult it is to get there the better the diving.
