Solomon PNG Master (aka Taka) is the newest liveaboard operated in the Solomon Islands. Join shop co-owner, Jonathan Eddy, for an adventure to the remote and fabulous Solomon Islands. Jonathan was there in March of 2017 and knew he had to go back. The Solomons' are a group of over 900 islands extending just south of Papua New Guinea, over 1,000 miles, to the southernmost island of Guadalcanal. Only approximately 140 of the 900 plus islands are inhabited and most of those have only subsistence fishing villages.
Solomon Islands are breathtaking above and under the water, full of green mountains and turquoise waters as far as the eye can see. The sunrise and sunset in the area are among the most beautiful you’ve ever seen. This will be your view for an entire trip when staying aboard the Solomon PNG Master (Taka) liveaboard and exploring the different Islands of this unique destination.

Solomon PNG Masters (Taka) is a 30 metre (100 foot) mono hull live-aboard dive vessel. Built in 2004 and custom designed for diving, the vessel offers the best liveaboard accommodation in Solomon Islands. She is very comfortable and has 13 air conditioned cabins. We have reserved six cabins on the second deck, each with a large window and en-suite bathroom.
The Taka has a well laid out dive deck with special tables and a rinse tank for camera gear. Also on the dive deck are five heads with showers making it easy to rinse off between dives without having to go back to your cabin. Due to the underwater topography most of the diving is done from the Taka herself.
A very large swim platform makes getting in and out of the water very easy. There is also always an inflatable in the water to retrieve divers if needed.
