The Solomon Islands are characterised more than anything, by the sea that surrounds it. The Solomons are located within the Coral Triangle.  Here, the waters have been nominated as one of Oceania's Seven Natural Wonders and described as the 'Amazon of the Ocean' for its huge diversity of corals and marine life.

Diving in the Solomon Islands

These reefs absolutely teem with life!  You’re sure to find titan trigger fish, green and orange neon slugs and amazingly coloured sea fans.  And then the whole way up the food chain with massive schools of jacks and barracuda, to the cruising grey reef sharks.  This is one of the top destinations for sightings of the pelagic favourites…from mammoth Napoleon wrasses to sharks, barracudas and several varieties of rays.

 

The Solomon's underwater realm provides spawning grounds and migratory routes for hundreds of reef fish species, dolphins, rays, sharks, and six out of seven of the world's species of marine turtles.

 

The Solomons also have one of the highest concentrations of WWII wrecks in the Pacific. Aircraft, ships and submarines litter the sea floor and now serve as artificial reefs attracting corals and fish life as well as sharing fascinating records of world history. From American oil tankers and navy destroyers to New Zealand mine sweepers and Japanese seaplanes, the diving is sensational and evokes vivid memories of WWII.

Deep Thought

This is almost as good as it gets for diving the Big Blue!!  Underwater photographers will be in awe of daily discoveries, both big and small.
