Comments Everything about our trip was really first class. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and were treated royally (as was everyone there). The staff was as friendly and helpful as they could be whether dive related or to do with food or room. The place is beautiful, the boats were large and spacious, and our dive guide, Dollar, was the best. Dive briefings were done on a dry erase board. For each dive Dollar drew the entire topographical layout of the reef structure and described the dive wonderfully. The only thing that might change would be the direction traveled due to current direction. It was all very free and easy. Coral and fish life was terrific. Saw a lot of lion fish,
scorpion fish, map puffers and others, and of course all the beautiful butterflies, angels, and clown fish.Saw very many flat worms and nudibranchs, turtles on almost every dive; tridacna clams; pygmy seahorses; and so much more.
If we could pack up now we would be back to Wakatobi as soon as we could get there. Thinking about our next trip and how we could work in a week on their live-aboard the Pelagian and a week at the resort.
