    Dive guiding at its best WALINDI - Kimbe Bay - Witu Islands - WALINDI, Papua New Guinea in December

    Febrina has a sort of cult status among divers interested in taking pictures of creatures rarely seen. Let me just say that I have the top five photos of my "all time greats" collection after a single trip on Febrina. My camera was guided by Digger who accompanied me one to one during some of the dives fellow divers were not enthusiastic about. Yes, we dove some of the sites more than once, but you are bound to miss something on each dive, so I found this an advantage when planning the best possible photo/video shots. Digger's experience is matched by the enthusiasm of divemaster Jocey creating a lively atmosphere on the boat and in the water. She even has a divesite named after her... Considering the price the boat is OK, the food is fine and divers move in and out of the water using a comfortable platform at the end of the boat, so even the physically challenged feel safe. What you really pay for is the unbelievable variety of species coupled by some of the best guides I ever went under with. Febrina is frequented by returning divers for a reason, and I will join them in the future.
