Thanks for all of the info. everyone! It will all be very helpful.

I won this trip to Lembeh. So, I guess we kinda got a trip for two @ 1/2 price.

Next year we will most likely book a trip to Bali for our "real" 10th anniversary (July 3rd). We are actually only in our 9th year of beating each other up. lol

Until then, seeing the rest of the world cant be all that bad. :)

I'm confused more than ever now but, anyway ....

Found out recently that the Maldives is out of the question. Long story.

Looks like Lembeh is our only option.

We're staying @ The Lembeh Resort.

Could somebody who has been there give me the full scoop on things .... including alternate excursions?
I can be happy with just muck diving and shooting things around the resort, .... but my wife, she would like to do something besides watch my z240's create backscatter. lol

Best time of year? Water Temps, clarity? Any wide angle opps? How are the guides?
Volcano tour-worth it? Sunsets, .... should I bring any topside gear (i.e. pano, gnd,)?
Flight time from Houston, Texas?
Do's & Dont's?

Thanks for all of the opinions so far. :)

In Topic: Lembeh - NAD Lembeh

Overall, Lembeh is a great destination. NAD is a good lower cost resort. You should know what kind of diving you are going to be doing before hand. As diving in low vis and garbage, may not sit well with some.

Could you elaborate a little more on this? Thanks

In Topic: Flooded bodies

There are parts that shouldnt get ruined in a flood, that can be removed from the body and listed on ebay for others to use as repair parts- if you have the insurance check in hand, I wouldnt sweat that level of effort- step back about 15 feet from a garbage recepticle and see if you can nail a free throw!

Pretty much what I did.
Tokina would cost $400 to repair ... not. Cant trust the 7D anymore so it's done too ... along with batt. & CF card.
