MV Taka introduced 2 new itineraries to the schedule:
• WWII Exploration: 2017 is the 75th anniversary of WWII. We will be offering four adventures through the year specifically focused on WWII historical diving. We’ll visit a number of locations including both American and Japanese WWII wrecks along with abandoned military installations and will even include several land tours to significant sites of strategic importance.
• Solomon Islands Dive and Fly – We have taken the very best diving in the Solomon Islands and included it all in this one special itinerary. You will spend 7 nights travelling one direction from Honiara through the most amazing diving in Solomon Islands to the far Western Province. Once there, you will spend an additional 4 nights in beautiful Munda exploring this unique village with an additional 3 days of diving before returning to Honiara by air (itinerary is also run in reverse).

Best of Solomon Islands – Central and Western Provinces

10 Nights / 36 Dives. WWII Wrecks, walls, cuts, caverns, coral, intense fish – this trip has it all.

This amazing journey gives you the very best of the Solomon Islands diving. You will experience the Florida Islands, Russell Islands, Mary Island and the incredible Marovo Lagoon.

We will begin our expedition with a westward cruise out of Honiara. One of our first stops in the Russells’ will be the iconic Leru Cut and Mirror Pond. Here you have the opportunity to dive among cuts and caverns and explore the beauty of these amazing volcanic islands. We continue west to Marovo Lagoon, the world’s finest double-barrier lagoon and a World Heritage Site. Known for the some of the world’s most biodiverse and healthy reefs, Marovo offers diving among coral gardens and along sheer walls. We loop back to Mary Island, properly known as Mborokua. which is notable for an underwater point that commonly hosts schools of barracuda and jacks. Occasionally divers are lucky enough to hear the rumbling of a nearby underwater volcano, Kavachi. We may spend a bit more time at the Russell islands before we finish our adventure in the Florida Islands with an exploration of Mbike and Sandfly Passage. The currents here mean manta ray sightings are possible. Tulagi, the main port, is also historically significant as a WWII base offers diving among WWII wrecks and artifacts.

Along the way, we stop at some of the smaller islands where you can enjoy some time on the beach or visit remote local villages. Come shop for produce for our meals or check out the local carvings.
