Non plus ultra for dedicated diversVerified review

This was my second trip on Febrina having participated earlier on a Vitu islands trip previously. The route we followed was the less visited South New Britain itinerary and we have not met a single diver apart from the ones on board Febrina. This I particularly liked compared to top divesites elsewhere with occasional congestion of divers on popular divesites ( I find this an increasing problem in the rest of the coral triangle). The crew is a precise and enthusiastic group of professionals led by Captain Alan who has unmatched experience in the area in picking the best divesites for the conditions you might encounter and a really entertaining companion for your dinners on board. Diving is simply top notch. This comes with guidance coming from Digger and Zebulon tirelessly pointing out critters you think reside only in guidebooks for specialized scientists. It is a rare occasion to see animals behaving around you in an undisturbed way when diving; we have witnessed a group of squids laying eggs at arms reach... well, we have been fortunate being among the 24 divers a year visiting this area. Febrina remains an unfading classic.
