This private charter of M/V Bilikiki offers a rare opportunity to
visit this exotic destination in comfort and the company
of fellow lesbian and gay travelers.
The eleven-night itinerary allows for a true exploration, with a visit to Marovo Lagoon planned.
The Solomon Islands, situated between Papua New Guinea
and Fiji, offer some of the most pristine diving in
the world. Expect to see huge anemones, schools
of pelagics, brilliantly colored tropical fish, giant
sea fans, eagle rays, and sharks.
This unspoiled paradise is one of diving’s last
frontiers - there is no industrialization and the islanders
live in a subsistence economy. Our neighbors for
the trip will be visiting villagers in their dugout
canoes. You will not see any other dive boats, or very
many people. These islands are lightly populated and
reflect a simpler time.
We’ll sail in air conditioned comfort
aboard the M/V Bilikiki. This huge ship offers plenty
of room to spread out, and cabins with private bath
and daily maid service. Due to diving off of tenders,
topography and currents, this trip is for intermediate
and more experienced divers. DAN or another dive medical
evacuation insurance is required and is available through
