Papua New Guinea | Dive Holidays

Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is a lost world surrounded by stunning blue seas, where only a liveaboard holiday can deliver that 'trip of a lifetime' scuba diving holiday. This really is frontier scuba diving at its very best and filled with nerve tingling encounters underwater. Step aboard our Papua liveaboard and leave the mundane behind you and let Scuba Travel help you explore one of the least dived corners of the globe. Papua New Guinea is the point at which 3 seas converge, carrying with them nutrient laden waters from the deep, which in turn lures in fish of all sizes. Due to its strategic location, there are also several Second World War wrecks which can be on the itinerary, including planes! The scenery is breath taking and untouched which makes Papua New Guinea a must see travel destination for all divers.

Traditionally Jan-March are the wetter months, April-June are the peak season as are September- November. July to August experiences the coolest air temperature but are good for big fish.

Scuba Travel Tips

Try to build a couple of nights on land into your itinerary to allow your self time to relax after the flight. Ensure your passport is valid for 6 months from your return date. Take along a few small items suitable for gifts as you will have a chance to go on land and meet some of the tribal locals that give permission to the boats to dive in their waters.
