Tom takes a trip or two each year, to dive and film for productions or for library stock. Sometimes there's space for friends and website visitors to join on these expeditions. If you'd like to join Tom, stay tuned to this page, and join his mailing list.

Expedition Papua New Guinea, Milne Bay, Aboard the MV CHertan

Two back-to-back trips:  October 3-16 and October 17-29, 2018

Milne Bay, where the Chertan cruises along the stunning Papuan coastline, is one of Tom's favorite places in the world to dive. A rare, unspoiled underwater wonderland in the middle of a tropical paradise, the clear, calm waters have provided Tom with some of the best footage and photos.

Tom has chartered the Chertan, owned and operated by Rob van der Loos, many times. Rob has over 35 years' experience in this area and knows all of its secrets! A great feature of Chertan diving is that you aren't restricted to how many dives you can do each day! 

Whether you like nudibranchs or manta rays and anything in between this is the trip for you!

Here's a link to the vessel:

The Chertan has 3 levels of cabins:

Standard base cabin (lacks en suite or head)

Middle deluxe cabin (includes en suite head)

Double executive cabin (full en suite)

Both trips have been fully booked for over a year. However, some medical emergencies recently occurred that have forced a few people to cancel. Therefore, we have some openings:

As of today, January 13, 2018, we have one opening, for a male diver, in the standard cabin for the first trip, Oct 3-16

A middle deluxe cabin is also available for two people, preferably a couple, for the first trip, Oct 3-16.
