The crew was superb the food outstanding, superb customer service. Stew dealt with the crew masterfully. The diving did not live up to the dive magazines hype or my prior experience in PNG. I don?t know if the sites selected were more baren or if all the fish are disappearing!! Variety of dives was interesting and the manta dive on the last day was my first encounter and redeemed the trip. Stew added great side trips to villages, the swim-through cave and the waterfall hike ? nice variety. The boat itself has an exotic appearance and is very well appointed and maintained. Tommy is a gem and should be rotated among the groups because of his superior underwater diving and guiding and creature finding skills. The trip was most rewarding, thank you.
