One of the most incredible trips ever taken.

We traveled to forty dive sites over 9 days that were among the most beautiful in the world. The Balikini is the only liveaboard with permission from island tribal leaders to dive in their waters. The coral reefs were unbelievable and protected because of limited access. The concern about protecting the reefs is notable and the beauty of the reefs is impressive because of the limited access by divers.
