I was fortunate to be able to spend several weeks based at the Tufi Dive Resort in the Oro Province of PNG as part of a project I was doing with them.

It really is a tremendous location and one of my favorite places in PNG. The main wharf has some interesting critters, plus there are the remains of two PT Boats down at 50m. The "fiords" are actually Rias but saying you have been diving in a tropical fiord sounds a lot cooler...

There is some really great diving on the offshore reefs and the local villages offer some terrific cultural experiences - all in all, a great location.

I have finally got round to updating my site with a comprehensive set of pages on all there is to see & experience in the area and if you follow this LINK it will take you to the starting page and an overview of Oro Province. Then just follow the links at the bottom of each page to see the rest of the pages.
