In Topic: diving in papua

09 February 2010 - 01:55 PM

I was just in Raja-Misool-Kri-etc in December 2009....most definitely take the liveaboard route. This area is too massive to only experience a small portion of it. I had the opportunity to look at several of the R4 eco-resorts which all seemed very nice, but I am very happy I dove from a liveaboard and thus was able to experience many more areas of West Papua.


Thanks for the advice. Any recommendations on liveaboards would be appreciated!

The fifth picture from your first post is great! You really got the colors to pop.

Hi, great photos!
Was wondering about the pygmy seahorse - you didn't use a macro lens, did you? has canon added a supermacro button?
Cheers,
Margaret

In Topic: Salt water crocodile attack at Blue Water Mangroves

As long as divers are made aware of the 'risk'... I don't think i would jump in the water with a croc around (they would smell my fear!), but a lot of other divers would. The more people go off the beaten track, to Misool and beyond, the more we are likely to hear about attacks like this. The animals have no where left to go :good: (ie BBC reports of tigers killing illegal loggers)
the croc is part of the eco-system there... who are we to take him out.
