This must be the best dive trip report ever posted on MUW!!!

Thank you so much for the write up and the photos!! I'm sure it must have taken ages to upload.

Every shot was telling a story...absolutely amazing...loved it!!!

May be easier to get there from Perth??? I hope!!

You are very welcome nanda666. This is my first post in MUW. I normally post my dive reports elsewhere.


I might post some of my other interesting dive trips to places off the beaten track here later.

Less than RM9k. Domestic flights in Indonesia are very expensive.

This is my wife doing the "Matrix leap" to avoid the whale shark. We were told that the whale sharks would avoid us and that is why my wife didnt move.... its like playing chicken with the whale shark as it swam on a collision course with u.
