Winter Wonderland at White Island

Postby tara » Mon Jul 12, 2010 11:09 pm

the trip report is coming - but a few words first ....

John Baker of Baker Marine Charters - awesome skipper! He looked after all of us a treat.
Great dive companions - Tony, Ben, Brent, Veronika, Francois and Jono.

How do I feel now - totally knackered and completely happy. Have uploaded a little video and a couple of photos to Facebook but the trip report is in progress.

Next steps - boat is booked for Labour Weekend 2010.

Brilliant trip thanks Tara. I'd have to agree with your assessment of our skipper, but would like to add that our deckie 'Dylan' went above and beyond the call of duty splashing ashore in the dark on our behalf.
As to knackered, know the feeling.
