Due to the COVID-19 situation, I was unable, as planned to travel to Magical Munda and complete my SSI Speciality Diving certifications. However, Belinda was able to guide and assist me (in her incredibly helpful, engaging, experienced and professional way) to navigate the required dive theory components, leading to me successfully gaining all the required specialties. Thank you Belinda for your virtual support and expertise. Hope to see you in person again and to dive with you in person too, one day soon when the world reopens. Thanks again to Dive Munda. You are AWESOME :)

My partner and I recently went on a holiday to Munda and what can I say what an amazing experience. Even though it rained most of the time we got to explore the magical reefs and saw my very first Hammer Head. With most dive sites within 30-45 mins of the shop we spent a lot of time in the water and logging around 60 mins on each dive. My only advise would be to pack sting go or something to stop the itching after a misquote bite. But apart from that we had an amazing time and enjoyed meeting the new managers :) After already being home for a week we are looking forward to returning next year.

This was our second trip to the Solomon Islands and Dive Munda. Belinda and her team are outstanding. All staff go out of their way to give you the very best dive holiday. We unfortunately went while there was a big rain event happening. However, there are so many different spectacular dive sites that they could always give us a fabulous experience. From wall dives with awesome macro possibilities seeing sharks and schooling Barracuda along the way to diving on WWII plane wrecks and a US dump site with heaps of shells and ammunition, Dive Munda kept us well entertained. Surface intervals were really nice with lots of yummy goodies and in different interesting places. Sometimes we stoppedat beautiful tropical islands where we could have a swim or a snorkel. We also went to a lovely traditional village on Sasevele Island and were warmly greeted by the local children. Another time we went to the island where John F Kennedy was based during the war. There is a memorial there and a small museum. The owner of the island gave us a lovely and informative tour. Dive Munda gives you a magical insight to the underwater world of the Solomon Islands. Can't wait to we return.

It was another fantastic trip to the Solomons. Dive Munda made it a special weekend with two days of diving. Where else can you see more beautiful fish than you can count and WWII planes and ships. Truly a unique experience. While I expect great diving in the Solomons, it’s really the people who can determine what kind of experience it is. Belinda’s positive energy is infectious gets you off on the right foot (speaking of, she also treated a small wound on my foot). It was truly a pleasure diving with Euna. She is knowledgeable, patient and kind. It was her attitude that gave me the fond memories that I have of that weekend. I can’t wait for my next trip to the Solomons and Dive Munda.

First time diving in the Solomon Islands, my teenage son and I chose Dive Munda and we had a brilliant time. The guides were lovely, my son deemed the boat drivers as extremely cool dudes, one took the time to teach him to crack a coconut while the rest of the group watched on fascinated. The water was warm enough to not need a wetsuit, the coral and fish life was plentiful, Jack the dive master was very professional and i felt complete confidence in his decision making and leadership. We had an excellent week and were sad when it was over, a fabulous holiday and we definitely want to come back.
