Comments Weather good - breezy but not uncomfortably rough, cloudy but with plenty of sun. Boat excellent - one of the most spacious and comfortable liveaboards, photographs do not do it justice. Excellent crew and the Management (Monty and Michelle) could not have been more helpful and professional but with a relaxed approach to experienced divers. Many magnificent corals in pristine condition and a great variety of reef fish of all shapes and sizes with many good macro opportunities.Barracuda Point must be one of the best dives in the world for those who like to be with large shoals of Barracuda,Rainbow Runner,Trevally and Dog Tooth Tuna. Only large pelagics were absent. The political situation in the Solomon Islands is much more settled now that there is a multi national Peace Keeping Force there but Honiara has little to offer so take the advice of Biliki Cruises and minimise your time there. I felt the diving, boat and crew well rewarded the cost and effort of getting to the Solomon Islands.
