Dive the Solomons Islands by Livaboard
Diving Solomon Islands
Solomon Islands comprise 992 islands, of which only 147 are inhabited. Situated to the southeast of Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands are one of the most peaceful and beautiful areas of the Pacific. They also have some of the most pristine dive sites in the world. These are filled with innumerable unspoiled hard and soft corals because of the remote location and the limited number of divers. Indulge yourself exclusively in diving with pilot whales, various kinds of sharks, mantas and huge shoals of fish, right down to the macro wonders such as pygmy sea horses, nudibranchs and ghost pipefish. The marine diversity in Solomon Islands is hard to beat!
Wreck fans will get a thrill out of our special wreck itinerary. A significant number of Japanese and Allied Forces’ ships and planes ended up on the bottom of the Iron Bottom Sound near Honiara during WWII. Encrusted in corals and surrounded by a plethora of marine life, these wrecks are silent witnesses of some of the fiercest battles that took place in WWII.
Solomon Islands are THE destination for the real diving fan looking for a change of scenery, completely off the beaten track. You will also find: wrecks, caverns, wide-angle reefs and large sea fans. Solomon Islands rival any other Indo-Pacific dive travel destination for coral reefs, marine life and diversity but without the tourist numbers.
