Comments diving was very well handled in all areas,4 dives per day on most days of the 10 nite trip,Misool area had the best diving & above water scenery,all reefs were healthy with lots of fish-many with large schools of barracuda,jacks,red tooth trigger,various snapper,and tropical fish,several shark species,& mantas at Manta Sandy.& nudis & pygmy seahorses on most dives. Our dives often were 70 minutes.We visited a village & had a rock island boat tour & swim.Our twin bed cabin was roomy with lots of storage space,desk.chair.Food got boring very quickly.Breakfast was the best meal of the day.But to me it's really all about the quality of the diving & it made the trip half way around the world worth the effort.
