          excellent place to stay - I was there for a month broken up by trips and best beds, clean rooms, friendly staff. Also booked loads of trips through them and they honestly looked out for best deals and discounts.

Waked over to the ferry terminal, it was a lot busier than we expected. Got out tickets then went and got on the boat, managed to get upstairs even though we it was packed.

          ... vi upp och hyr(!) kamera-utrustning. När TAKA lägger ut från Cairns hamnen någon timma senare är vi och all vår packning med. Vi färdas norröver hela kvällen och natten för att vara framme vid första dykstället på morgonen. Ombord på båten är 28 dykare och 11 personal från hela världen - Australien, USA, Nederländerna, Frankrike, Belgien, Storbrittanien, Irland, Tyskland, Japan, osv. Stämningen är god och alla ser fram emot riktigt bra dykning.
