7 day trip on Bilikiki.  Outstanding.  Sam and Kelly were the manager team,
chose the sites- coral gardens, aquariums, walls of never-ending giant
fans, pelagics in current, wrecks, tunnels . . . and they were really
down-to-earth friendly and aimed to please.  Solomon Islander's crew was
extremely helpful and well-mannered, service was exceptional at all times,
and the food was plentiful and good.  Some of the sites- such as Two
Tunnels and Mary's Island- were unbelievable in the amount of fish life and
coral growth. Most of the fish were aquarium to fusilier size, beautiful
and the count had to be in the millions! We also saw one hammerhead, a huge
school of 2 foot barracuda, and multiple huge schools of good size jacks. 
At Barracuda point there had to be thousands of them swimming through the
coral cuts just below us like a flowing river- absolutely mesmerizing- and
I have the video to prove it! The Karamulon night dive introduced us to
some crazy creatures!  Almost every dive site had it's own unique nature to
it.  This trip was exceptional and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
