After two years back and forth to Japan, we finally got back on track with our dive expeditions.

This year’s location was chosen by Lynnie to celebrate a special milestone, the beginning of her seventh decade. What a fabulous choice it was. Manado, North Sulawesi had something to please everyone. From the tiniest shrimp to the ever present turtles, the ocean was full of life and colour.

The Grand Luley Resort Manado actively promotes coral conservation and we were lucky enough to join in their special event: the placement of the sea goddess statue in their existing artificial reef. We even got a chance to ‘plant’ some hard coral into the structure to help the reef grow.

The resort staff were friendly and helpful and food and services at the resort were fantastic.

Thanks to all our lovely crew, diving and non-diving, who joined us in Manado and made this an experience to remember. Looking forward to our next dive adventure……not sure where it will be just yet??? Stay tuned.
