  2. I have finally finished updating the location guide to Tufi in Oro Province, Papua New Guinea. Less well known than Milne Bay and Kimbe Bay, Tufi is actually one of my favorite locations in PNG as it offers really good diving at certain times of the year combined with spectacular above water scenery and, for the more adventurous, some quite special village culture and homestays. I have updated all the pages in the Tufi guide and added new ones based on recent trips - included is an overview of Oro Province and diving Tufi plus there are dedicated pages on Tufi Wharf, the PT Boat wrecks, the really great offshore reefs and diving in Cape Nelson's Fiords. There are also dedicated pages on the B17F Black Jack wreck on Cape Vogel that can be dived from Tufi and the B25 "Pistoff" Mitchell Bomber wreck in Collingwood Bay. I have also included a dedicated section on the quite special village culture around Tufi with pages on village homestays, cultural demonstrations in the villages, the facial tattoos of the Tufi area and the Puri Puri (loosely translated as Black Magic...) men of Tufi.

  3. I have just completed revising and updating the location guide to Milne Bay in PNG on my site. I have updated all the pages and added new ones based on my most recent trips. Included is an overview of Milne Bay province, an overview of diving Milne Bay, Tawali dive resort, overview of the north coast dive sites, Dinah's Beach and Deacon's Reef at Lauadi, the famous Milne Bay manta cleaning station Giants@Home and what is probably the best aircraft wreck in PNG the B17F Black Jack plus links to the various articles I have written over the years. I have been visiting PNG regularly for over 15 years now, so this has kind of become a labor of love.... Don
  4. I have finally finished revising and updating my location guide for the Port Moresby and Bootless Bay area of Papua New Guinea. Most divers traveling to PNG try to get through Port Moresby (which is still the only international gateway in to the country...) as quickly as possible because of its bad reputation for raskol gangs and random violence, but there is actually some excellent diving to be had. Port Moresby is also not the hell-hole it is often depicted as - "gritty" and potentially dangerous yes, but manageable with a modicum of common sense in my opinion. My guide provides an overview of Port Moresby, plus links to what else to do there and where to stay. There are overviews of diving in Port Moresby and the main dive sites, Loloata Dive Resort and my two favorite dive sites Suzie's Bommie and the wreck of the Pacific Gas. Don
  5. It is just so great that after having done 5000 or so dives in my life, I can still come out of the water from dives like this and have no words to desribe the beauty I have just witnessed. On this trip to Milne Bay last year, I let my friends do the talking and I just pushed the record button and filmed what I saw. The trip was organised by my friend, Douglas Seifert, onboard Craig De Witt's MV Golden Dawn and the legend, Dinah Halstead, was our dive guide. I can't wait to go back and film more.
