Comments Joined a group from Bluewater Travel for a photo workshop. This was my first live aboard outside of So Cal and I didn't know what to expect, had a wonderful time on the boat. The managers, Tina and Olli, did a great job making sure all were happy. The boat is very comfortable and the food was plentiful. Some of the easiest diving I have ever done. The crew takes you out to the dive site, usually under 5 minutes from the boat, drops you in and picks you up wherever you surface after the dive. The crew handles your gear with much care and you never have to lug anything. We were able to do 5 dives every day with a great variety. Make sure you go on the village visits, they are very interesting and you'er able to purchase some great wood carvings. I will definitely dive with the Bilikiki again. I flew into and out of Honiara from Nadi Fiji, on Fiji Airways and back on Air Niugini, both flights were comfortable and I encountered no hassles with luggage.
