Had a day to spare in Honiara and it's not really the most attractive place and not a lot of options. Tulagi Dive provided snorkelling gear and a brilliant guide (Thank you Andy Mamata!) who took us 12km but a whole world away from Honiara....More

To be fair we did not go snorkling, only visible sign from beach area is old stack so little to see. To get value out of this visit strongly recommend take a longer tour to snorkel.

Two great shipwrecks to go and dive on. If you want to snorkel you can but you will miss most of the wreck. B1 goes down to 56 metres and B2 about 35. Not too long a drive from the capital. Trust me you can...More

Two fantastic World War II wrecks, suitable for advanced open water divers. Parts of the bow of the Bonegi II are visible from the surface and suitable for snorkelling. The downside of diving in the SI is the price - expect to pay upwards of...More
