Solomon Islands - Oct. 19-29th, 2019

Join shop co-owner, Jonathan Eddy, for an adventure to the remote and fabulous Solomon Islands. Jonathan was there in March of 2017 and knew he had to go back. The Solomons' are a group of over 900 islands extending just south of Papua New Guinea, over 1,000 miles, to the southernmost island of Guadalcanal. Only approximately 140 of the 900 plus islands are inhabitated and most of those have only subsistence fishing villages.

Join shop co-owner, Jonathan Eddy, for an adventure to the remote and fabulous Solomon Islands. Jonathan was there in March of 2017 and knew he had to go back. The Solomons' are a group of over 900 islands extending just south of Papua New Guinea, over 1,000 miles, to the southernmost island of Guadalcanal. Only approximately 140 of the 900 plus islands are inhabitated and most of those have only subsistence fishing villages.

Due to their remote location, and the lack of development, the Solomon Islands offer some of the most pristine diving the world has to offer. The reefs start in as little as a few feet of water and are covered in beautiful soft and hard corals which are teeming with marine life in every direction. Many islands are ringed with deep walls which start at the shore's edge and drop off to below sport diving limits. These locations offer an opportunity to see deep ocean marine life such as schooling pelagics.

After landing at Henderson Field on Guadacanal, we will be transportated to the Taka, our liveaboard dive boat and home for the next ten days. The 100' Taka was built as a dive vessel in 2004. She is very comfortable and has 13 air conditioned cabins. We have reserved six cabins on the second deck, each with a large window and ensuite bathroom. The Taka has a well laid out dive deck with special tables and a rinse tank for camera gear. Also on the dive deck are five heads with showers making it easy to rinse off between dives without having to go back to your cabin. Due to the underwater topography most of the diving is done from the Taka herself. A very large swim platform makes getting in and out of the water very easy. There is also always an inflatable in the water to retrieve divers if needed.

The meals and snacks onboard are very good and plentiful. Meals feature a selection of fresh local fruits and vegetables, often purchased from the islanders who paddle up in wooden dugout canoes when the Taka anchors for the evening. Dinners consist of fresh fish, chicken, beef or pasta and homemade breads. Special dietary needs can be accomodated with advanced notice.

In short, don't miss the opportunity to dive this beautiful and remote part of the wold. The price based on double occupancy is only $4995.00 (list price is $5730.00)
