Okay .. I have booked in two trips with Vidar for next year, one in
May and the other in September. No firm prices yet but think about
$3500 for 8/9 days

Trip one. Terennganu leave 10th May back 18th ...... all news stuff
for us and a few new marks for Vidar to check out, they came from
Jamie so should be good.

Trip two. Kuching leave 3rd Sept back 11th ...... A lot of the these
wrecks we have done before but yet again Vidar is sniffing arounf so I
expect a few interesting dives to be had.

regards Baz

Just got this info off Vidar for the trips ... regards Baz

Terengganu 10th May to the 18th May 2011

The following wrecks are planned to be dived on this trip

Nitchiei Maru, 10,000 ton tanker 30-50m
Dutch sub O-20,40m,
Tairyu Maru ,
Maybe the Tottori Maru in 78m,
Also quite few other known freighters,
We also have 2 undived, but confirmed sonar hits offshore Terengganu,
one maybe a Jap minelayer, and small Jap tanker in 60m.
Further north into the Gulf I have another 6 new marks worth taking a
look at. 60m general depths.

The actual route will be planned once onboard. Too many to choose
from !!

Kuching 3rd September to the 11th September 2011

From Kuching, first diving day would be the wrecks not far out from

Jap destroyer Sagiri, 20-28m and,
2 Marus, the Katori being the biggest and best, 9-20m. next would be
the d'artagnan, for one or two days,

We then have 2 options

Northern route, 30 hours steam (0ne day off) to huge tanker "Caribica"
34-76m plus an optional small freighter near the Caribica.

Following that, choice of 2 wrecks, one being a cargo ship carrying
logs called "Nagarit" 60-82m or an old steel cargo ship, which I have
personally have not dived max depth 93m, bit collapsed.

Then on to the Sincere in 48-72m, Probably direct back to Singapore,
or stop along the way and dive the Aur a tanker, or the Sara D. Can
be done in 8 days, but 9 best

Southern route, with no day off going via the Jap destroyer,
"Shimotsuki" 62-73m,
The a new site the "Humanity ace" upright small freighter to 68m,
Nippo Maru (ex-ningpo) 28-43m.

An 8 day trip, easy
