Rolling in the Deep – Papua New Guinea

by

The Rolling in the Deep series takes us to Papua New Guinea. One of the last unspoiled diving destinations left on earth.

The ‘Rolling in the Deep’ underwater series continues. This time taking us to Papua New Guinea. This amazing destination is not for the casual tourist. This is a trip that will separate the tourists from the travelers It is very expensive and difficult to get there. But the diving is most certainly worth the effort. We were staying in the Milne Bay area, which is eastern Papua. This area is well known for its critter diving, but to my surprise, it has the best reefs that I have ever seen. There are few divers here, so the damage to the reefs is less than any other destination I have been to. There aren’t too many dive sites that have world class macro diving and wide angle in the same site. The most difficult thing is trying to decide which lens to put on.
