A chain of dormant volcanoes form the scenic boundaries of Kimbe Bay, on the north side of the island of New Britain, encompassing hundreds of submerged reefs and more than a dozen islands.
Near Walindi is Mahonia na Dari, a research and conservation centre where scientists identified 860 species of fish and 350 species of corals during one survey alone. 70% of all coral species in the Indo-Pacific region are found in and around New Britain, and no other dive area in the world can boast such diversity.
World famous dives with names like Emma, South Bay, Inglis Shoals, North Emma, Christine’s, Susan’s Reef and Restorf Island are only a few of the 200+ reefs and dive sites sprinkled throughout Kimbe Bay. All are pristine and undamaged. Although best explored by liveaboard, divers can enjoy a number of fantastic dive sites from a land-based holiday option.
