Liveaboard Diving Cruises in Papua New Guinea, PNG

     We are pleased to offer to avid adventurer divers the new "hot" diving destination of Australasia: Papua New Guinea, which has in its waters some of the best and clearest dive sites in the world. With an amazing visibility of 30m plus year round and an interesting historical past (great wreck diving), the region is host to an extremely rich marine life, the ultimate source for underwater photographers and marine biologists.     With the second world war leaving its toll there too, some really good wreck diving can be done in pristine and rarely dived sites. According to recent surveys, the Coral Sea has some of the richest marine life in the world, and some species of nudibranches and other invertebrates can only be encountered here.
    Papua New Guinea was first discovered by Spanish and Portuguese navigators in the 16th century. PNG later came under Dutch control, and then German dependence until the British took a mandate from the League of Nations in 1920 and left the place under Australian administrative control. In December 1941, after Japanese invasion, Papua New Guinea became a Japanese stronghold, specifically the islands of New Britain and New Ireland in the east. Papua and New Guinea finally became a unified state in 1949 and PNG is today a constitutional monarchy and is a member of the Commonwealth.

     For all you liveaboard enthusiasts, we are proud to offer the services of the award winning vessel, the M.V. Telita.
     This vessel, completely refitted for luxury diving cruises, is one of the best liveaboard vessels in the world. She has gained recognition for quality and safety service with the most demanding surveys of international diving magazines.
