We had a rather incredible honeymoon, spent in large part, under the waters in and around Komodo. This is by no means a full trip report, but for anybody interested, we stayed aboard the Archipelago’s Adventurer II, which had spacious cabins, incredibly friendly helpful crew, and delicious meals. If you are a diver, and are looking for a luxury liveaboard, I highly recommend this operation.
This was my first time in the waters of Indonesia, and it was really great. While I personally cannot say that the diving was so great that I’ll never dive the Caribbean again, I am thankful for this perspective, as Indonesia is a very long way from home!
There is a lot of life in the Indonesian waters. In fact, in the following picture, the black and green nudibranch (Nembrotha Cristata) was not even seen by me when I was taking the picture! That says something about the abundance of life in the waters, my abilities to spot critters and my abilities as a photographer (i.e., there is a lot of luck involved in getting a nice picture).
This is a Lion Fish, which is not endemic to the Bahamas, but is thriving there as a result of having no predators.
Welcome to the birth of what could quite possibly be the most important Blog in the history of man. Whether your choose to return or not, I hope you enjoy your visit.
This is a picture of a smooth trunkfish. Sometimes they are sold in aquariums. However, they make poor pets since they may excrete a toxin when under stress, and this toxin can kill it, as well as all the other fish in the tank. Of course, these beauties can be safely enjoyed in the open ocean by snorkelers and scuba divers alike! I strongly encourage anybody who is interested in diving to take up the sport.
