Du wärst einer der ersten, die hier tauchen!

Tag 2 > Tag 11

MUNDA: Shark Point: Eine 600 m hohe Wand mit der Möglichkeit von silbernen Spitzen und Hammerköpfen. Airacobra: ein kürzlich entdeckter P39-Jäger aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Haipe: Besonders gut für Nachttauchgänge. Es ist der einzige Ort auf der Welt, an dem biolumineszierende Schildkröten gefilmt wurden. GIZO: Toa Maru: 140 m lang - japanisches Transportschiff Grand Central: Meeresströmungen treffen sich vor Ort und füttern die Pelagiker. Hot Spot: Eines der schönsten Riffe mit Weich- und Hartkorallen. Auf dem Weg nach Vella Lovella in der Wilson Street besuchen wir Dörfer mit einer langen Geschichte der Kopfjagd und des Kannibalismus. Wir werden zu Gruppen von Fauro und Shortland Island fahren. Diese schönen, selten besuchten Inseln haben schwarze Sandstrände und sind das Tor nach Bougainville, PNG. Wir werden Scout-Tauchen entlang der Ostküste von Bougainville reisen. Es gibt praktisch keinen Tourismus und keine anderen Tauchaktivitäten hier, also werden wir unseren eigenen Weg gehen, während wir die Gegend erkunden. LAMASA: Auf der Insel Latangai gibt es sowohl den Einstieg in die Kimbe Bay als auch die Heimat des schönen, aber selten erkundeten Tauchens. Dieser vulkanische Kessel bietet eine erstaunliche Topographie mit vielen Schnitten und Höhlen. Kokopo im Osten von New Britain (Zweiter Weltkrieg) war eine wichtige Basis für die Japaner und von strategischer Bedeutung für ihren Eintritt auf die Salomonen. RABAUL: Der Hafen wurde gebildet, als eine alte vulkanische Caldera vor Tausenden von Jahren teilweise zusammenbrach und das Meer eintreten ließ. Es ist von mehreren kleineren Vulkanen umgeben, von denen die meisten ruhend oder erloschen sind. TUFI: Das Hotel befindet sich in den spektakulären tropischen Fjorden von Cape Nelson an der Nordostküste Neuguineas. Es gibt mehr als 25 ausgezeichnete Offshore-Riffe, einige gute Kreaturen unter der Tauchplattform und ein unglaubliches Flugzeugwrack.

Questo itinerario ha un carattere pionieristico ed esplorativo ed è adatto a subacquei di livello medio o altamente esperto. Questo è un viaggio verso l'ignoto, poiché nessuno ha mai fatto immersioni in gran parte della massa terrestre tra Munda, Provincia occidentale, Isole Salomone e Rabaul, Nuova Gran Bretagna, PNG. Saresti uno dei primi a immergerti qui!

Giorno 2 > Giorno 11

MUNDA: Shark Point: una parete alta 600 m con possibilità di punte d'argento e teste di martello. Airacobra: un combattente P39 scoperto di recente dalla seconda guerra mondiale.

Punto caldo: una delle barriere coralline più belle con coralli molli e duri. Sulla strada per Vella Lovella in Wilson Street visitiamo i villaggi con una lunga storia di caccia alla testa e cannibalismo. Guideremo a gruppi da Fauro e Shortland Island. Queste bellissime isole raramente visitate hanno spiagge di sabbia nera e sono la porta di accesso a Bougainville, PNG. Viaggeremo scouting lungo la costa orientale di Bougainville. Non c'è praticamente turismo né altre attività subacquee qui, quindi andremo a modo nostro mentre esploriamo la zona. LAMASA: Sull'isola di Latangai c'è sia l'ingresso nella baia di Kimbe sia la casa delle belle immersioni, ma esplorate raramente. Questo calderone vulcanico offre un'incredibile topografia con numerosi tagli e grotte. Kokopo nell'est della Nuova Britannia (Seconda Guerra Mondiale) era una base importante per i giapponesi e di importanza strategica per il loro ingresso nelle Isole Salomone. RABAUL: Il porto si è formato quando una vecchia caldera vulcanica è crollata parzialmente migliaia di anni fa e ha lasciato entrare il mare. È circondato da numerosi piccoli vulcani, molti dei quali sono inattivi o estinti. TUFI: L'hotel è situato negli spettacolari fiordi tropicali di Cape Nelson, sulla costa nord-orientale della Nuova Guinea. Ci sono più di 25 eccellenti scogliere al largo, alcune buone creature sotto la piattaforma di immersione e un incredibile incidente aereo.

    How old do you have to be to get certified?

    A PADI ‘Bubble Maker’ course can be completed from the age of 8 but to become a certified Junior Open Water Scuba Diver, PADI requires you to be at least 10 years old. 10 and 11 year old must dive with a certified parent, guardian or PADI professional to a maximum depth of 12 meters. 12 to 14 year old must dive with a certified adult. At age 15, the junior certification upgrades to a regular Open Water Diver certification.

    Marine park fees

    The Marine Park and Port Fees for our trips are dependent upon the country, itinerary, and often, trip duration. Some must be prepaid in advance of your departure and others can be paid onboard. Please check with our team for further information about your booking.

    The makeup of these fees vary across all of our vessels and itineraries and though they are normally referred to as Marine Park and Port Fees, or even simply Marine Park Fees, they are generally much more varied than that. These extra fees relate to expenses that are assigned by marine parks, local authorities, governmental agencies, or similar; and relate directly to costs assigned to each guest on-board at the time of departure.

    Official government costs might include obvious things such as park fees, permits/permissions, and local taxes. Less obvious elements may come in the form of more prosaic costs such as local village fees such as are paid in the Solomon Islands (commonly called Kastom Fees) and Raja Ampat. On top of this, the actual fees may be for several parks, regions, or villages in a single trip. Palau and The Philippines, for instance, will have at least three such separate fees built in on most cruises.

    Park fees and diving permits generally make up the majority of the extra costs, however, this is not always the case. In The Maldives, the fee is entirely ‘Green Tax’ and the fee in Truk includes a portion of the 5% sales tax due on an accommodation booking and sales made onboard (which many operators charge on top of any payments). Palau also has a ‘bed tax’ that is built into the fees.

    Our policy is such that our Marine Park and Port Fees are not extra income for the company. The fees are collected to cover the above per customer costs that are accrued on each trip for each client.



    Small print

    Guests are responsible for their own dive profiles and for obtaining suitable dive insurance to cover all diving activities. We respectfully request our divers to stay within the bounds of their training, follow dive computer guidelines and make decompression stops where necessary.

    Itinerary

    This itinerary is a sample only and featured dive sites may vary or the sequence may change.

    Day 1

    Transfer to the boat, Check in, meet the crew welcome briefing, assign cabins, prepare dive equipment, dinner on board. The diving day aboard the Solomons PNG Master is scheduled as follows: Light Breakfast followed by a briefing & Dive 1 Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing & Dive 2 Lunch, relaxation period, briefing & Dive 3 Snack, relaxation period, briefing & Dive 4, where possible Dinner. This itinerary has a pioneering and exploratory character and is suitable for the medium to the highly experienced diver. This is a journey into the unknown, as no one has ever dived most of the land mass between Munda, Western Province, Solomon Islands, and Rabaul, New Britain, PNG. You would be one of the first ever to dive here!

    Day 2 > Day 11

    MUNDA: Shark Point: A 600 m high wall with the possibility of silver tips and hammer heads. Airacobra: a recently discovered P39 fighter from World War II. Haipe: Particularly good for night dives. It is the only place in the world where bioluminescent turtles were filmed. GIZO: Toa Maru: 140 m long - Japanese transport ship Grand Central: Ocean currents meet on site and feed the pelagics. Hot spot: one of the most beautiful reefs with soft and hard corals. On the way to Vella Lovella on Wilson Street we visit villages with a long history of headhunting and cannibalism. We will drive to groups from Fauro and Shortland Island. These beautiful, rarely visited islands have black sandy beaches and are the gateway to Bougainville, PNG. We will travel scout diving along the east coast of Bougainville. There is practically no tourism and no other diving activities here, so we will go our own way while exploring the area. LAMASA: On the island of Latangai there is both the entry into Kimbe Bay and the home of beautiful but rarely explored diving. This volcanic cauldron offers an amazing topography with many cuts and caves. Kokopo in the east of New Britain (World War II) was an important base for the Japanese and of strategic importance for their entry into the Solomon Islands. RABAUL: The port was formed when an old volcanic caldera partially collapsed thousands of years ago and let the sea enter. It is surrounded by several smaller volcanoes, most of which are dormant or extinct. TUFI: The hotel is located in the spectacular tropical fjords of Cape Nelson on the northeast coast of New Guinea. There are more than 25 excellent offshore reefs, some good creatures under the diving platform and an incredible plane wreck.

    Day 12

    2 dives in the morning depending on guest flight schedules and the 24 hour requirement before flying.

    Day 13

    The boat docks back in Rabaul in the morning. Check out and disembarkation is between 08:00 and 09:00. Hotel/airport drop-off time is in the morning.
