      [QUOTE="Dan, post: 8942725, member: 477433"]My last trip with them to Red Sea was also disappointing. That’s in December 2019, before the Coronavirus news came out. Now it would be even worse.[/QUOTE]

      Which Red Sea liveaboard operator would you most recommend?

        Well, I only went with Red Sea Aggressor, unfortunately. So, I still need to try others for comparison.

      Hello Dan, It looks very promising I will make the Oct. Tiger shark trip on the Dolphin Dream. Just a few questions though- What is the approx cost of the trip plus when & how much of a deposit is needed. Also is the deposit refundable? If you need to contact me- Here is my personal e-mail= jerry_dives@hotmail.com Thx Jerry Seawell

      When you were at Ramons, did you get the meal plan? My wife and I are trying to decide if we should get the meal plan
      at $75 a day per person. Or just pay at the resort and eat some meals outside the resort. Were most other restaurants open?
      Thanks,
      Russ

        No I didn’t. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance along the beach. I paid less than $75/day for the meal.

      Hi Dan,
      I got a message from Bradley Condo you were trying to reach me but got some odd message a service wasn't taking messages. I tested all my numbers and emails and all are functioning. Cell is 301-310-7232.
      Best regards, Greg Liquid Diving Adventures

      Hey Dan...what is your latest with Polynesia Master....I got an email from them this morning. My trip was rescheduled to December and they just said....hold off...dont book anything else yet. I of course, had already moved all my flights. They are closed now so don't know what this means and will try and call them late tonight. Thanks

      Hi Dan, I posted a thread earlier this year about Banda, and you mentioned at the time that you're were planning a dive trip there this fall. I was just curious how it was? Apologies if you've already posted a trip report somewhere. You seem to be an avid Indo diver, so just curious how it compares to Komodo and Raja?

      Hi Dan. I am seriously considering a trip to Malpelo in May. I have been reading the threads on here about Melpelo. Have you gone yet? I am experienced and have been to the Galapagos several times so while not being extremely concerned about current, I am a little. Also, the boat, Ferox, is not the type of luxury I'm used to. Any advice?
      1. Dan
        Dan
        Sorry for the delay reply. I usually don’t check my profile posts. Only check those in inbox. I haven’t been in Malpelo, but it’s in my bucket list & thinking of going there in 2021.

      Hey Dan_T, read your dive reports. Seeking your help as you appear knowledgeable abt Raja Ampat.

      1. Raja Ampat-Forgotten Island-Saumlaki aboard Blue Manta
      OR
      2. Central & Southern RA aboard Raja Emperor Laut

      I'm less fussed about the vessel as I believe both above LOBs are fine -- my dilemma is itinerary.

      Many thanks in advance for any help you can give!

        Sorry for the delay reply. I just don’t check my profile post. I am a bit of in dilemma in advising you on the choice since I have never been to Forgotten Island & Saumlaki, but it’s in my bucket list. I have been in RA 7x. The 8th one will be in January 2020. I would say you won’t be disappointed by going to RA.
