Superb Liveaboard Diving in the Solomon Islands
In the midst of the South Pacific, the Solomon Islands is part of the coral triangle and home to some of the best, least visited scuba diving in the world. There is an amazing diversity of marine life, dive sites and experiences just waiting to be explored. Bilikiki Cruises has been running liveaboard scuba diving trips and cruises in the Solomon Islands since 1989. The experienced crew know the best dive sites that the Solomon Islands has to offer. MV Bilikiki has 10 deluxe cabins, eight with a double bed and single bunk and two with twin single beds and no bunk (cabins #1 & 2). All cabins are air conditioned and have their own en-suite. There is a large sundeck, comfortable lounge and camera area and spacious dive deck. Her large size and a hull that was built for South Pacific seas are two main reasons why guests from around the world still say that "the Bilikiki" is one of the most spacious and comfortable vessels that they have travelled on.

    Destination Information

    Honiara

    Honiara is located in the Guadalcanal Province. It is the capital of the Solomon Islands and the gateway for international visitors to the rest of this beautiful tropical island nation. 

    Before the Second World War, Honiara did not exist as the town we know today. This bustling municipality was developed around U.S. military headquarters established during the Second World War. U.S. presence in the area boosted Honiara’s infrastructure, which triggered the British Government to name it the country’s capital after the war in 1952. The Solomon Islands was a protectorate of Britain from 1893 until independence was declared in 1975. This elected urban centre still thrives and is considered the primary hub for business and commerce for the whole country. 

    During WWII and the U.S. occupation of the area, American and Japanese troops clashed in Honiara during the Guadalcanal Campaign and the Battle of Henderson Field. America emerged as victorious and subsequently set up base in the area for the rest of the war. As a result, the area hosts a swathe of WWII sites, including abandoned military equipment and war machines both above and below the surface.
