In Topic: Lembeh vs Anilao

23 September 2013 - 07:56 AM

Thanks for all the replies. I read one and think Anilao. I read anothe and think Lembeh. I think I'd rather go back to Lembeh, but it's such a pain to get there...

THE ARENUI! I went to Komodo on the Arenui last year. Really good macro, reefscapes, mantas, even a few sharks. Plus you get to see the dragons.

This boat is the best liveaboard I've ever been on, and I've been on several. It's beautiful. The dive operation is excellent. The food ans service is the best I've ever experienced. I can't wait to go back!

In Topic: Tiger Sharks Bahamas

I've just got back from a trip to Tiger Beach with Mr Stuart Cove. I stayed at the Bahama Bay Resort and motored out each day in the fast Newton. We had fresh bait each day and did not come back stinking of fish. (I did get bitten twice by a tiger and once by a lemon shark) Then I went on the the new hotspot that is the Great Hammerhead Dive.attachicon.gif_FFF5923.jpg


Wait what? You got bitten?! I've do a fair bit of shark diving and have only rarely hear of this, especially not twice by a tiger and once by a lemon. Were you right by the bait? I'm off to,tiger beach in August and hope they haven't developed a taste for neoprene crusted humans :)

I use the Sola 800 as well and couldn't be happier with its performance. I especially like the red light option, which makes it easier to sneak up on unsuspecting fishies like Mandarin fish.
