Living Colours together with Raya and Aventura gathered two groups in January – February 2014 for once-in-a-lifetime diving trips to Bunaken National Marine Park followed by liveaboard trip to Raja Ampat with Amira. “This trip was more than I dreamed of”, comments one of amazed divers Jaakko Julin.

Most of the divers in this trip were “Bunaken veterans”, but few people were in this part of the world for the fist time. One of them is Jaakko Julin, who heard about the trip in his friend's wedding.

- I singned in when I heard that marine biologist Markus Dernjatin is the trip leader and I haven't regretted my decicion once, Jaakko raves on Amira lieveaborad's deck on the last night of the three week trip.

Jaakko has been happy with the group, trip leader and of course dives in Bunaken and Raja Ampat National Parks.

- I've been diving around the world but when I arrived in Bunaken... Oh boy I was stunned!

Jaakko had just bought his first underwater camera and straight away he got to know the best tips from professionals.

- Diving with there “camera wizards” has opened my eyes. After I've been diving with camera I have understood how much there is to see in the coral wall! So many little creatures in every layers, Jaakko says.

Jaakko has just good things to say about the trip and it's leader.

- Dernjatin can tell so many details about the reefs we have been diving in. And he knows so many fish too! I can't imagine better trip leader. This trip is more than I dreamed of, Jaakko comments.
