"Bilikiki is much more than a great dive boat with a fantastic crew sailing the remote Solomon Islands and discovering new and beautiful dive sites; it's a social enterprise of sorts, providing seeds to locals who grow and sell fresh produce to the boat, simultaneously improving the health, nutrition, and economic well-being of villages while securing a source of high quality food for guests. Thank you Tina, Oli, the crew, and the people of the communities we visited."
"I can't think of a better way to spend 12 days than on board Bilikiki. It is absolutely spectacular diving amongst healthy corals, colorful fishes, stunning caves, cuts, WW2 wrecks, even muck diving with exotic species in sand and seagrass. Plenty of macro and adrenaline dives too, with sharks, mobulas and big schools of jacks and barracudas. None of this is possible without the most awesome, most hardworking crew, who seemed to know our every desire before we could ask, and a well-run dive op made even better by the goodhearted cruise directors, Tina & Oli. Top it all off with a comfortable boat, tasty meals from the chef and locally grown fresh fruits and veggies brought to the boat almost daily by local Solomon Islanders in dugout canoes, and you have the Bilikiki experience! Kellie, one of the boat's affable owners, joined us, finding time to dive, take video, certify crew in advanced dive training and point stuff out underwater after having already made our booking process so easy and accommodating. Our group was so enthusiastic by the end of our cruise, they were begging for more! Well, they say all good things must come to an end, and we left reluctantly, but we look forward to the day when Bilikiki once again becomes our home, even for just a little while."
"Just really, really, really enjoyed our trip!!! We really fell in love with Pato and Fernando. They did an excellent job guiding us! The crew is as good as it gets!!! Friendly and the hardest working guys. They made diving absolutely effortless.
The food was delicious and the beds were very comfortable. I’m so happy with everything. All in all absolutely wonderful!!!"
"I did my 1000th dive on my second trip on the Bilikiki. Last time was in 2005 and then I thought it was the best liveaboard I had been on. It still is. The boat is immaculate, all the crew know their jobs and go the extra mile with everything and the dive sites are memorable and in superb condition."
"Always a great time on the Bilikiki. Spectacular diving, excellent food and an amazing crew. One of the best laid out boats I've been diving on."
"My bucket list trip. Outstanding crew and service. Superb diving. Stable and comfortable vessel and accommodations. The chefs do a marvellous job, even catering to vegan and gluten free diets. Can't say enough good things about them. Just do it!"
"Just got back from a 10 day trip on Bilikiki with Tina and Oli. The whole Bilikiki team made our trip a memorable one, despite the temperamental weather. Tina and Oli's enthusiasm was infectious... ...Tina's determination to 'conduct' the fish life will remain long in the memory!!! Many thanks to everyone who made this dive trip well worth the long flights from the U.K."
"If I could rate them 6 stars I would!!! Amazing boat, crew, food and diving."
"Second time and still finding new sights to see! Wonderful trip well worth the effort....."
"I had an amazing 10 nights onboard the Bilikiki! The dive sites were so diverse and so beautiful, we had some amazing encounters with wildlife, the crew are phenomenal and have so much energy and enthusiasm for what they do, and lastly it is so well organized and run which allowed us to dive to our hearts content. The dive deck is spacious and well sorted making suiting up and getting back on the boat so easy. We will be heading back next year!"
