My family reunited aboard the Seven Seas for a two-week dive trip around the Forgotten Islands, in celebration of my father’s 70th birthday and his retirement from a 50-year career in marine conservation, much of which was spent working in the waters of Indonesia and the Coral Triangle region.
Pulau Nusa Bun… Dawera… Nila… Nil Desperandum… Teva… You can roll these island names around your mouth like luscious lollies. Never heard of them? Neither had I until I joined The Seven Seas liveaboard for the dive trip of a lifetime.
In these desperate days of dying corals, it is always uplifting to see vibrant coral communities. We certainly found these in many of the places we dived and snorkeled during our recent Forgotten Islands trip aboard the Seven Seas.
