Raja Ampat

Hello all, I'm new to the newsgroup.

I want to schedule a return to Raja Ampat. I dove there last year and even
though the diving was beyond extraordinary, the boat I was booked on, MY
Pelagian, was over-sized for some of the tight accesses Raja requires, so
some exploration was missed (at least as explained by the Captain).

Anyway, I want to know if anyone here has been on Odina or Pindito. Both
have the beam and draft characteristics necessary for Raja, but I know
nothing about the crews or standards of service. If anyone here has been on
either boat, regardless of where the diving took place, I would appreciate
any info you could offer.

Feel free to e-mail me if you prefer.
