The world's largest archipelago with countless islands, some even unnamed . . . .
Scuba diving in the South Pacific enjoys the reputation as being the very best in the world. Exotic marine life, including turtles, sharks, rays and whales, and a stunning seascape with corals, walls, drops offs and wrecks galore make the South Pacific a diver's paradise.
Top destinations are Papua New Guinea with its pristine dive sites, wrecks and marine life. Fiji is famous for its coral reefs and tiger sharks. Tahiti's beautiful turquoise waters and oceanic drop offs attract large pelagics, especially sharks and rays and vase schools of tropical reef fish.
Dive with Humpbacks at Tonga and remember the world famous Chuuk (Truk) Lagoon, home to the entire Japanese 6th fleet, sunk in 1944.

Bilikiki Cruises, Solomon Islands
Added: 20th April 2013 by wjurewitz
OK, we didn't dive, but we did stay on the Bilikiki for 8 days on a medical mission to Makira Island, southeast of Guadacanal.
The Australian dive management couple were superb hosts to the volunteer medical team. The ships's crew was excellent.
I have delivered boats now for twenty years...
