Diving in Papua New Guinea
The waters of New Britain are home to prolific and diverse marine life and reef structures. Pristine and colourful corals are home to a variety of fish, crustacean and invertebrate life and many of the reefs have resident schools of barracuda, tuna and jacks. A range of shark species are regularly sighted, including hammerheads and silver tips, particularly on the offshore reefs.
Kimbe Bay is located along the shores of New Britain Island and is huge marine protected area with an amazingly bio-diverse ecosystem. Immaculate reefs are home to over 800 species of reef fish and 60% of the coral species found in the Indo-Pacific area! The occasional sightings of orca, pilot whales, whale sharks and other marine life passing through Kimbe Bay and West New Britain waters always delight both guests and staff.
Milne Bay in the Bismarck Sea is located at the far eastern end of Papua New Guinea. During the war Milne Bay became a huge naval base through which hundreds of thousands of servicemen passed. The area provides not only airplane wrecks from WWII but superb muck diving, stunning drop-offs, colourful coral gardens and towering pinnacles.
