There were a few large groups of fish. however i was told in Rangoria Aug/Sept/Oct s the time when fish appear in big groups. In...

    Early Jan. Anilao, PG and Palawan dive trip for 2 weeks need advice.

    Sangat Island Dive Resort: Home. Website to dive resort very close to the wrecks in Coron. I think they have a fast speedboat so it should only take 5-10 mins to get to the wrecks. If you stay in Coron town with teh other dive resorts , time to the wrecks is approx 60-90 mins

    Anilao Trip Review Oct 2014

    Have to agree about Anilao Pier night dive. one of the best night dives i have ever done and i am not a night dive fan. Saw many Mimic octopus & squid. One advantage of staying at Club O, the pier dive is not too far away for a night dive.

    Early Jan. Anilao, PG and Palawan dive trip for 2 weeks need advice.

    Should be ok.i would suggest the following in order 1.fly manila to Coron. Spend 5 nights in coron, 4 dive days. There are approx 7 main wrecks and normally the dive shops cycle dive spots each day. Therefore you can see 6 wrecks then have a dive day spare to dive barracuda lake or repeat wreck...

    Bangka/Lembeh solo in December/Jan?

    Do some more research regarding the weather. Lembeh is ok Dec/Jan , however Bangka & Bunaken area diving can be impacted by the weather during this time. One of the dive shops in Bangka normally closes at this time of year due to the weather (Lots if rain,wind & high seas).

    The most expensive cabin is approx $5000. However the cheapest cabin is approx $3500. PNG is just as expensive as Australia for diving. http://www.diversiondivetravel.com.au/welcome.html A good travel agent based in Cairns. I have used for several trips.

    Diver missing in the Bahamas

    During my trip , we use the lines a couple of times. Lines/rope of the back of the boat that you can hang onto if there is a bit of current. Normally used for 5-10 m mid water looking at reef sharks. My thoughts are with the family, friends and the crew of the shearwater. A difficult time for all.

    Solomon Islands or Eastern Indonesia

    Munda is a great place to dive, wrecks, reefs, sharks,rays, and lots of stunning coral. Topside islands are also very pretty with lots of war history. I really enjoyed Munda. I have travelled throughout Indo , including Ambon. The reefs are not as nice but bio-diversity of huge, lots of macro...
