We didn't want to dive that much this year. Right, here we go for trip number 2, again with the Raja Manta. It was good to meet some familiar faces on board again! Our trip took us to Kalimantan's East Coast from Tanjong Batu to Sangalaki, Kakaban and Maratua - all mysterious names promising epic diving adventures. We got our fair share of ripping currents, a Jelly Fish Lake, schools of barracudas, Oceanic Black Tips, Whale Sharks and even Thresher Sharks. We missed out on a few potential other sightings but were rewarded with some spectacular visibility in some spots allowing for great wide angle shots. Fantastic trip.
