There is little variation in temperatures in Papau New Guinea so you can dive here any time. Water temps vary between 28-30 degrees, matched by the air temperatures. 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.
The emphasis in Papua is on the big fish you can find with plenty of shark species, pelagic and schooling fish and turtles. That said, there is also substantial macro life and 2nd World War wrecks.

- Barracuda, tuna & trevally schools
