Papua New Guinea – Kimbe Bay
29 July – 6 August 2017
Kimbe Bay is a world-renowned scuba diving hotspot, supporting an incredibly diverse marine habitat – coral reefs, mangroves, seagrasses, deep ocean waters and seamounts. Over 900 species of fish have been identified here and the bay is home to 76% of the world’s coral species. The coral reef communities have remained largely undamaged by human activity and the area has become important for marine science research, with a long term conservation strategy in place to protect the precious environment.
Whales, dolphins and sharks feed and breed in the bay’s waters. World famous dives sites like South Emma, South Bay, Inglis Shoal, North Emma, Christine’s, Susan’s, and Restorf Island are only a few of the more than 200 reefs and dive sites sprinkled throughout Kimbe Bay. All are pristine and protected by a rigid policy of “Look but don’t touch”.
Walindi Plantation Resort is an intimate dive resort that has been welcoming scuba divers since 1983. After a 90 minute plane ride from Port Moresby, followed by a 50 minute drive from Hoskins Airport, you will arrive at Walindi Plantation Resort which is surrounded by tropical rainforest and opens onto picturesque Kimbe Bay.
The resort has previously been voted “The Best Diving Resort Anywhere in the World” by reader surveys. Photo-journalists from all over are attracted to Walindi and many award winning underwater images have been taken in the region. Good company, great food, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere provide the perfect background while you enjoy the delights of Kimbe Bay.
