Has anyone looked at this dive report or is it futile to have a report on this site that leads you to another web site? Is it too much to type out the link? Here's a few pics anyway.

All the best,
Caymaniac

Hi Caymaniac,

I saw your report the other day. Very nice pictures, and it is certainly going to be useful to people traveling to that area. Thanks for posting!

Always post one up.

I know many will benefit from a photographers point of view about dive operations. Even if one is already posted different points of view are great.

Thanks for posting and I loved the cuttlefish face shot.

Hi Caymaniac, yea i think it would be a lot easier to just copy and paste your report here. I know its a pain but for people with slow uplinks it takes a long time to chase things around the web.

The photos you posted here look great, especially the anemone and shark face

I did a similar trip on the Stardancer a few years ago. This brings back memories. Did you stop at Dicky place?

A big thanks for putting a direst link in place instead of my (URL) quotes.


Yes, I believe we did stop at Dicky's. I'm not sure we'll see better diving than we did on Star Dancer.
Anyone that has been to PNG and Palau, are there big differences?

Thanks,
Caymaniac

Are you planning to stop any places on the way to PNG or on the way back?

Haven't decided. I would really like to photograph the Sea Dragons in Australia. Not sure if November is the right time.

That would be in a more southern part of Australia? We have dove on a 4night liveaboard out of Port Douglas in late June, plenty Minke Whales, sharks galore at Osprey as well as flashlight fish at night, huge Cod off Lizard Island.
