Papua New Guinea

A Divers’ and Explorers’ Heaven

Is there another country anywhere with so much diversity? The six million inhabitants of this nation of mountains and islands (more than 160 named islands and 500 cays) are spread over 463,000 km2 of mountainous tropical forests and speak over 800 different languages.  See the map

 

 

Reef shark, Tufi, Papua New Guinea

Located just south of the equator and to the north of Australia, PNG is a diver’s paradise with the 4th largest surface area of coral reef ecosystem in the world (40,000 km2 of reefs,seagrass beds, and  mangroves in 250,000 km2 d’of seas), and underwater diversity with 2500 species of fish, corals, and molluscs. There are more dive sites than you can shake a stick at, with many more to be discovered, and barely a diver on them. The dive centres are so far apart that there is only ever one boat at any dive site. It is possibly the only place left in the world where a diver can see macro critters, pelagics, and big stuff, as well as fantastic soft and hard corals, due to low fishing pressure in the area in comparison to places like Indonesia for example, and due to local reef "owners" receiving a small fee for every diver that visits "their" reef. As a result elders make sure that the reefs are not fished.

So, where to go? We spent five weeks travelling around the country to find the best places for our clients.
