Great snorkelling

B1 and B2 are great for snorkelling and diving. Definitely worth doing in Honiara. Snorkelling the wreck you see hundreds of fish and good coral too.

Gaving read reviews on trip advisor about the wrecks we decided to take the trip out there. From the ship there is a free shuttle from the ship to ouside the port where plenty of taxis are... More

These two sites offer a great opportunity to snorkel (yes, snorkel, not dive) right off of the beach. The sunken ships protrude from the water and make a great experience for non-divers. The beach, however, is isolated, no life guards, no facilities to shower afterwards. When the seas are a bit rough, it can be a bit scary to snorkel... More

Two sunken Japanese ships beached in the Second World War- reclaimed by the sea, covered in colourful coral, and home to a myriad of tropical fish. The snorkelling is fantastic but calm seas are a must as high swells can move you over the ship and churn up the water reducing visibility.

Normal western honiara stone/volcanic beach. Good shade and parking easy. The wrecks (snorkel/dive B2 and B1) are the main attraction. Otherwise some of the beaches closer to Honiara as just as good. Be prepared for a fair bit of plastic rubbish washed up on the beach. Wear thongs or sandals except when in the water as there is some broken... More

I took friends to snorkel both wrecks. It was the highlight of their South Pacific tour. Cost approx $65 each. Pick up 7:30, drop off 1pm. Kinugawa Maru was the highlight. Both of these were huge transports, reduced to rubble. However snorkelers loved this second wreck as they could see more of the boat, fish, thousands of the, and varieties... More

On our war tour our driver stopped at Bonegi 2 for a snorkel. My wife and I were the only people there (Admission fee applies) it was a bit choppy but small swell that day we were there. I went in by myself as it was surging near the wreck located off shore. I was filming with my Gopro through... More

Beautiful location, great for diving/snorkelling....the only downside is a bit of litter lying around the beach!

I have dived these wrecks many times and they are worth doing just for the fish life. Mating cuttlefish can be one of the highlights.The wrecks are in poor condition but can be a lot of fun exploring the remaining rooms. Make sure the conditions on shore are flat as this beach is steep and it's difficult to exit when... More
