Roman, 22/08/2017

Forgotten Islands. Великолепный маршрут в отличных условиях. Сбалансированная программа дайвинга с 3-5 дайвами в день. Проживание, питание, условия для фото, дайвгайд и экипаж - всё на высоте. Даже массаж есть. На "северных" островах были эпические пейзажи, от которых не хотелось отрываться. На "южных" островах было всё и разное. Включая других дайверов, которых в первые дни не было вообще. Маршрут длинный. Отдельная история и спасибо - это антропологическая составляющая круиза. В описании я обратил на неё внимание, но не ожидал, что она будет реальной, а не для галочки. Общение с местными были ежедневными включая их на борту и нас на берегу. Нам даже обеспечивали перевод. Кормили замечательно. 3+ раза в день. Обязательная сиеста и обильный ужин после 8 вечера.
