Solomon Islands
 

Solomon Islands is an island nation located in the southwest Pacific, 1,500 miles (2,400 km) west of Fiji and 1,200 miles (2,000 km) northeast of Australia.
MAP OF SOLOMON ISLANDS

Air travelers can reach Honiara, the capital of Solomon Islands, and the home port for the ships of Bilikiki Cruises Ltd. via Nadi, Fiji; Brisbane, Australia or Port Moresby, Papua - New Guinea. Visit our Downloads Page for current airline schedules.

The Ships
 

Both MV Bilikiki and MV Spirit of Solomons are 125 ft long, and have a 24 ft beam, making them very large and stable ships designed for South Pacific conditions. Both ships offer immense sundecks, plenty of covered areas and airconditioned accommodations.

Bilikiki offers 10 deluxe cabins, 8 with a full double bed and a single above and 2 with twin single beds and no bunk. All cabins have private showers and toilets.

Spirit of Solomons offers 7 cabins like Bilikiki's, and 6 additional cabins which have 2 single bunks, and share 3 showers and 2 toilets. These smaller cabins are often booked on a single occupancy basis. Please note we are not currently running Spirit of Solomons for diving charters but please contact us for long term charters or other uses.

Our Photo Gallery and Video Gallery offers you a selection of images to give you an idea of the ships facilities, or you may wish to Download our DVD.

MV Bilikiki operates from Honiara, on Guadalcanal Island, to dive sites in the Florida Islands, the Russell Islands, Mborokua (Mary) Island and Marovo Lagoon in the New Georgia Islands.

The Diving
 

The walls, reefs, pinnacles and coral gardens of Solomon Islands support an amazing variety and quantity of sea creatures. The varieties of fish are staggering. Within a few yards of each other, individually or in schools can be seen anemone fish, angel fish, butterfly fish, humphead parrot fish and other reef dwellers while just a short distance away schools of barracuda, big-eye trevally and other pelagics cruise in the blue waters.

Popular with underwater photographers and those with a keen eye for the small and unusual critters are "muck dives". The amount and variety of sealife is astounding. Manta shrimp, ghost pipefish, and pygmy seahorses are only a few examples of what you may find. For some vivid imagery of what you might expect to see be sure to visit our Photo Gallery and Video galleryand view photos and videos submitted by divers like yourselves, or Download our DVD.
