Once you’ve grasped the “Bula” way of life in Fiji, continue your trip by flying to the Solomon Islands and expand your diving horizons by getting up close and personal with true WWII relics. Fascinating battle sites remain virtually untouched, above and below the water. Hundreds of ships, aircrafts, and submarines adorn the ocean’s floor, creating an underwater museum, as shelter for myriad of marine life. But there’s so much more to Solomon Islands diving than just wrecks. Caverns and caves, sharks and other pelagics, incredible marine life and schools of fish, wall dives, it’s all here for you to enjoy.

Fiji – Wananavu Beach Resort and diving
Wananavu Beach Resort, the perfect 4 star accommodation to start your journey, is a boutique resort located on a scenic headland at the most northern point of Fiji’s main Island, Viti Levu. Experience the world renowned diving of the Bligh Waters, or explore the local snorkeling sites. Wananavu caters well to the adventurous souls who might like to try line-fishing, or experiencing a local village visit, as well as those who simply prefer to relax by the pool with a good book and a cocktail. Enjoy the feel of a true island paradise, with the convenience of being on the mainland. You will not find telephones, radios or televisions in the bures (Fijian for bungalow), giving you the chance to really connect with a peaceful slice of heaven. The magnificent views from the restaurant are unparalleled overlooking the nearby islands of Nananu-i-ra, Nananu-i-cake and Yanuca Island.
Solomon Islands – diving on the Taka Liveaboard
Continue this exceptional journey by flying to the incredible Solomon Islands and board Taka, the Solomon Islands’ Dive Expeditions’ newest liveaboard for a 7-day dive journey of a lifetime. Unspoiled because of the remote location, there are not many divers to put pressure on the reef and fish. Photographers will love the “open dive deck” policy, and tremendously photogenic dive sites such as Leru Cut, a volcanic cavern curtained in beautiful sunbeams. In addition, these reefs are dive-able year-round and the marine biodiversity is exceptional. Pelagics such as manta rays and sharks are common sights, and visits to remote villages are guaranteed to leave you feeling inspired.
