Comments This was my third visit here and the diving was fabulous. Large schools of fish, beautiful nudibranchs,worms. Coral reef is in excellent condition, sponges are large and colorful. Huge turtles found on many dives, as well as shrimp, lobster,cuttlefish,ghost pipe fish, fans. There is more to see here than anywhere I have been diving. That's why I continue to visit the Solomons.

Food and drink simple but tasty. Fresh vegetables and fruit is purchased
from locals who come up to the boat in canoes to sell their goods.
Beautiful wood carvings can be purchased from locals on island stops.

Lots to love here and the currents are generally mild although I have
experienced strong currents there from time to time. I will be go back
on this boat again!
