No visit to the Solomon’s would be complete without a visit to the islands of Gizo and Uepi, wowing divers with a combination of reefs, walls, wrecks and marine life.

Isolated Uepi Island, situated at the edge of the world’s longest lagoon (Marovo) offers a unique paradise experience and first class dive sites, conveniently located just off the edge of the island or a short boat trip away. Waters are often very clear and tidal currents make the deep water passage adjacent to the island (The Slot) a prime habitat for colourful corals and sponges as well as reef fish and pelagics.
