Given the current troubles in the Aceh province of Indonesia, does anyone know if the diving operations on Pulau Weh have closed down?

I don't think they've closed down, but it might be difficult to get there, as martial law is in effect. I was planning to go in July, but will wait until things calm down. I reccomend you email the Lumba Lumba diving centre on Gapang beach, lumba2@aceh.wasantara.net.id. The dutch owners are very helpful and friendly.

Just yesterday was something here in the news, that a german tourist was shoot accidently by the military and his wife was heavily wounded.

I woudn't go there and I'm not easy scared off.
