Febrina is one of those rare nuggets of authenticity in a growing sea of fabrications.

The reefs are pristine and offer what I assume is diving as it was 100 years ago. The bonus was Orcas on the last day, something that I will not soon forget.

The coral reefs of Kimbe Bay take me back forty years, to a time when corals grew in lush profusion, untroubled by the problems that beset them today. I am hard pressed to think of anywhere on earth that has this combination of vibrant health, diversity and beauty.

Prof Charles Veron (Former Chief Scientist, Australian Institute of Marine Science)

Walindi is a beautiful hotel in a gloriously tropical surrounding. The diving is absolutely top class and worth the effort getting there.
