Wonderful diving across the board this trip! Good conditions, and plenty to see, big and small. Being the Christmas trip, finding the rare and elusive Santa Claus Pygmy Seahorse was an absolute must. We managed to find a whole bunch of them, as well as the other three species of pygmies we have in Raja Ampat – the Bargibanti, the Denise and the Pontohi. Slightly more substantial stuff as well; Grey Reef Sharks on several dives, Wobbegongs of course and massive schools of fish pretty much everywhere. Plus, we had some of the best Manta dives ever on this trip! At one of the cleaning stations we enjoyed 20-25 huge rays playing around, using the ”cleaning” bit more as an excuse to socialize by the looks of it. What a show that was!!
