Comments The quantity and diversity of the fish on all the sites just blew us away. We had just come from the Solomon Islands and thought the diving there was great, but this was even a notch better!

From the efficient pick up at the airport, transport by tinnie to the island, to easy check-in and orientation on the island - everything was so smooth the entire week we were there. For most of the week, we were the only ones diving, so we left when we wanted, and dove the sites they recommended (or by the end of the week, the ones we preferred).

What airline route can we take from the USA to get there?

Renee, your best bet is to contact Dietmar. He's well traveled and can give you good advice. We were already in the South Pacific on an extended trip, so we just made our way to Port Moresby from the Solomons. My guess for you might be LAX or SFO to Sydney then PNG.

Nice report! What was the overall cost of your stay there, accommodations, meals and diving? THX
By report author: Lisa Jabusch and Steve Nieters in TN, US at Jun 29, 2018 18:35 EST  
We paid about $3800 for two us to stay 8 nights (meals included), 6 days of 2 tank dives (plus one extra afternoon dive for my husband), roundtrip boat transfer to airport, recompression chamber fees, and tips.
