Solomon Islands safari 7 nights

A Solomon Islands safari or the Solomon Islands for 7 nights is a fantastic experience. You will dive and visit the Russell Islands, Mary Island and the Nggela Islands, also known as the Florida Islands. You will dive and experience the amazing reefs in these areas. The trip also includes a visit to a village where you can see and feel traditional song and dance. Here you can also take a walk to see traditional life up close.

  • Exciting diving and visits on land
  • Russell islands & Nggela (Florida) islands
  • Wrecks and corals

This tour is sometimes also called the “Taste of Solomon”. The tour is sometimes done as well, but then with more focus on the wrecks that are here in the region. That tour is then usually called WW II wreck week. The Battle of Guadalcanal has an incredible amount of history and many wrecks, including aircraft and submarines are still here today although most of them lie at very great depths.

En live board to Solomon at some point during your diving career will bring new perspectives to your travels. It's a long way to go but worth the time and you'll experience a lot above the surface too. Contact us for questions and booking and we will help you put together your diving trip and adventure but a safari in the Solomon Islands or the Solomon Islands or in combination with another destination.

Russell Islands
  • Clay Cut
    A channel back to Leru Island forms a beautiful reef formation. When you dive at the right time of day, you have amazing light rays and great photo opportunities. At the end, you can see the vine-clad rocks and jungle before descending to emerge on a steep wall of gorgonians and soft corals.
  • White Beach
    This dive site is a former American base from World War II. Trucks, bombs and ammunition were dumped in the sea here. Both a fascinating historical dive and a fantastic macro site in an unusual mangrove site.
  • Mirror Pond
    A stunning pond that mirrors the jungle above. Outside the reef is a steep wall where snappers and tuna hunt. Here you also have pygmy seahorses hiding in the wonderful gorgonians. In shallow water there is a fantastic coral garden where crocodile fish, squid and anemones live.
  • Karumolun Point
    The chief of Karumolun Island has banned all fishing and gathering at this dive site for five years. It has created a local marine protected area. This dive site has amazing soft corals, a large shoal of jacks, barracudas and lots of sharks. Eagle coats are often seen here as well. The macro life at this dive site is also fantastic with disco clams (electric clams), nudibranchs, octopus, crocodile fish and ghost pipe fish among the things seen.
Mary Island
  • Divers often refer to Mary Island as the "best" dive of their dive trip. It is an uninhabited island with an amazing amount of hard corals and a rich fish life. The schools of fish are amazing here, especially when joined by sharks, turtles and bumphead parrotfish. You usually stay here all day.
Nggela Islands (Florida Islands)
  • Twin Tunnels
    This large seamount, in the middle of the channel between Guadalcanal and the Florida Islands, has two tunnels that drop vertically straight down from 12 meters and open into a cave of 35 meters. When you swim out of the cave to the steep wall there are shoals of fusiliers. Gray reef sharks often cruise by here and create a pleasant atmosphere. There are also fantastic corals, various squid and mantis shrimps as well as schools of snapper, tropical fish and an amazing variety of anemone fish.
  • Devil's way
    The best place in the Solomons to dive with manta rays. A channel between two islands leads the water to very strong currents and this is an adrenaline filled dive. You drift along the top of the reef, duck and quickly swim down under the upper part of the reef wall and then watch as up to a dozen manta rays swim close in formation to feed. They are often joined by sweetlips, jacks and bumphead parrotfish.
  • Maravagi Bay
    A macro diver's paradise! This is a quiet sheltered bay that offers all sorts of great macro objects such as nudibranchs, demon stingers, scorpionfish, waspfish, various pipefish, squid, juvenile batfish, various anemonefish, shrimp and crabs. Plus some giant clams and a small wreck packed with batfish.
  • Japanese Mavis seaplane
    A Japanese seaplane sunk during World War II and sitting upright on the bottom at 30 meters. It is an impressively large, mostly intact plane. This location is also great for macro items. Here you will find, for example, various ghost pipefish, twin spot gobies and spine check anemone fish.
