Wow, what an amazing resource you have put together on your site.  The images are fantastic.  I really like the way you captured specific behaviour. But it's not just images but explanation and education.  This should be the go-to starting point for anyone thinking of going to Tonga.  Very well done sir!


By the way, although I have been to Tonga many times for work, including Vava'u, I was never able to time a trip to go diving.  But I was extremely fortunate to swim with humpbacks in Niue which is not so far away.  So I second your endorsement of such encounters being a seminal experience. Thanks for bringing back those memories. 


Thanks a lot for the feedback and the comments - greatly appreciated!



In Topic: Atauro Island, Timor Leste - Location Guide

Hi Bart, thanks for the comments - I really enjoyed both trips to Timor Leste as the coastal sites around dili and to the east and west are good plus Atauro can be really good.


My big dissapointment with Atauro was that I did not see any of the big creatures underwater that migrate past the island - particularly so on the west coast. But I guess that's the ocean for you...
