Solomon Islands Diving
Take the plunge into the deep and explore the vast array of marine life on offer with visibility that can stretch to at least 30 meters. Rich in history from WWII, including the famous Battle of Guadalcanal, makes Solomon Islands a wreck divers dream. Hundreds of vessels and aircraft littering the ocean floor provides divers with a unique opportunity to explore the spectacular variety of marine and coral life that has formed as artificial reefes.
Boasting the largest saltwater lagoon in the world, Solomon Islands have become a marine life haven where divers encounter colorful coral gardens, turtles, stingrays, octopus, giant clams, sharks, manta rays and more species of fish than most dive spots in the world. There is no need for a wetsuit as the waters are generally tepid at a warm 27-30 degrees. Diving is available on several live-aboard vessels departing from Honiara and Munda as well as at various resorts that can provide days full of underwater adventures.
