The Solomon Islands offer extraordinary diving opportunities; crystal clear waters with prolific marine life home to an amazing varieties of fish and corals. In addition these islands were the site of many WWII battles and there are some outstanding wrecks to be seen. A small sample below:
When approaching the famous Bonegi 1 Wreck from the beach its hard to imagine a shipwreck of this magnitude resting right in front of you. Completely submerged just 30ft off shore, her bow just 10 feet below the surface, the stern at almost 200ft.
MV Aaron Ward
The Aaron Ward can be found in 60-70 metres of water sitting upright on the bottom, still largely intact. She is 348m long, so even with the depth of water, a couple of dives will allow you to see the entire wreck comfortably. The “Ward” is one of the world’s great wreck sites and very large on the wow factor – visibility on average is 20-30m.
A 6,500 ton Japanese transport lies upright from 20ft down to 160ft and is fairly intact near the stern. The fish in this area have been trained to feed from diver’s hands and this makes for an unforgettable experience and an opportunity for excellent photography.
