(Wicked Diving Komodo) We arrived late in the first afternoon via a charter as we missed the connection. This boat trip was spectacular, the water was clear and glassed off.After arriving we had a briefing of what was what on the boat. We also had the couples cabin which was great as we were the oldest on board, good to see we still have some seniority rules in place. First dive was manta cleaning station, spectacular with 5 large mantas and a great array of sea life.After this dive we had some faster drift dives which pumped up the adrenaline. With only 20 dives under my belt i was a little cautious but was totally accounted for with amazing dive masters and his and her students looking after me. I felt very safe. This was then followed up the next 2 days with a great pre dive briefing explaining the site and its conditions. This was critical for me as i then had total confidence in what i was going to expect. Sass, Freddie and Max were great. After been a surfer for many years and living on top of the water you have a real struggle accepting been under,this trip helped me overcome that experience. I cannot tell you how good it is to feel comfortable during a dive. Thanks wicked.
