Don't delay, come to New Guinea now...

Located just south of the equator and just off the northern coast of Australia, the country of Papua New Guinea is perhaps the most isolated and yet most rewarding dive location on earth. Formed of New Guinea and Papua, the nation is known as PNG to westerners, and Niugini to its people. We like the name Niugini, so we always call it by its pidjin name or in English: New Guinea. It is home to the world's fourth largest surface area of coral reef ecosystem  (40,000 km2 of reefs, seagrass beds, and mangroves in 250,000 km2 of seas). The underwater diversity is quite something. and It has 2500 species of fish, corals, and molluscs. There are so many dive sites that we don't know about. Only recently one of our ex dive masters, Rebbecca Mayoll found a Mitsubishi Zero in 18metres of water. Yes she really found it herself. The best bit is that dive centres are so far apart that there is only ever one boat at any dive site. Never confuse New Guinea with the Indonesian Province of Iriyan Jaya, sometimes called West Papua. The diving and the welcome and services could not be more different. Nothing in Asia, compares with Niugini. Kam hariap long niugini and find out why!


The six million inhabitants of this nation of mountains and islands are spread over 463,000 km2 of mountainous tropical forests, and speak over 800 different languages (12% of the world total).  As the map below clearly shows, this nation is a combination of the third largest island in the worldand 160 other islands and 500 named cays. The contrast of the mountainous peoples of the west and the river dwelling Sepik tribes is again in contrast to the waterborne communites of the Islands. In the 1930's Australian Gold prospectors came over a pass into a valley and found 1 million people who were hitherto unknown to the outside world. New Guinea really is that special and it really is worth going there once in your life. 

In order to best explore PNG, we have tailor-made itineraries to the best dive resorts in New Guinea. These are  Lissenung Resort, Walindi Resort, Tufi Resort and the Live Aboard MV Febrina. We can also organise any other dive resort on request. In addition to this, we have cultural trips, Highland sing-sings, and most impressive of all, expeditions in a dug out canoe down the Sepik River.

We have all been to Papua New Guinea and our guidance is based upon actual experience; we only promote what we have done.  Using our expertise and local knowledge, we create the best possible  trip for you. We  match the right resorts to your needs. We can also organise Port Moresby stop-overs. You pay the same rates as if you booked directly with the different resorts, hotels, and operators.
