Experience the remote Solomon Islands by liveaboard on board the luxurious M/V Bilikiki, the only liveaboard currently operating in these waters.

This luxurious 40 metre liveaboard departs Honiara on seven, ten or 14 night adventures (Mar-Dec) to explore the Florida and Russell Islands, Mborokua (Mary) Island and Marovo Lagoon (10 & 14 nights).

Accommodating 20 guests in ten air-conditioned, en-suite cabins, the boat is spacious and comfortable. Facilities include sun decks with shaded areas, a photo room, a salon with large screen TV/DVD, and an extensive dive deck with ample storage space for equipment. Surface intervals between dives are often used to visit the island villages close by, and experience some of their extraordinary hospitality and colourful culture.

Up to four dives a day are offered, most from the accompanying tenders. The nutrient rich waters support a wealth of marine life from colourful tropical fish to huge schools of barracuda. Expect to see an amazing diversity of macro life as well as tuna, sharks and manta rays. The underwater topography includes sheer walls, pinnacles and caves as well as huge fans, coral gardens, mangroves and wrecks (ships, trucks and planes). There's so much to see and photographers will have the chance to shoot with both a macro or wide-angle lens. Water temperature is a warm 28C year round and visibility can be up to 40 metres. The trips include some wreck diving and snorkellers are welcome. Nitrox is available.
