Our Top 10 Picks 

In early 2012, while staying at a glamping resort on a private island off the coast of Panama, my wife and I did a one-day scuba training session.

Within a few hours, we were diving in Coiba National Park, a UNESCO-protected marine reserve that forms part of the Tropical Eastern Pacific Marine Corridor. After years of snorkeling, it was an incredible introduction to scuba diving. We saw massive pods of dolphins and tuna en route...

Taking off just after 10:00 AM, we turned northeast...

Darwin, Australia

We all arrived safely, some a little later than expected, to a cool Darwin. The capital city of the Northern Territory was in the grip of what locals call a “deep freeze” with temperatures only 75ᵒF; usually it is 90ᵒF! Once settled into our rooms the excitement of what was ahead began to break through the fatigue of long-distance travel. A welcome drink and a shared dinner was our first encounter with fellow...

Cairns, Australia / Rabaul, Papua New Guinea / Embark Caledonian Sky

After a good night’s sleep in Cairns we flew to Kokopo airport, Rabaul. Splendid views of the Torres Strait below marked the northern edge of Australia and the southern coastline of Papua New Guinea.
