Pelagic Dive Travel in collaboration with the Conflict Islands Papua New Guinea, would like to invite you on a SCUBA Dive Liveaboard with AMAZING DIVING while supporting the marine environment!
Choose either a seven-night or a nine-night liveaboard into the far reaches of MILNE BAY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA. This is not just an ordinary dive liveaboard, with awesome diving, it’s also about the local communities & marine conservation, to ensure their futures.
The vessel will travel into remote areas around Milne Bay, visiting islands in the Louisiade’s Archipelago. These islands are rarely visited and almost never dived. In these areas, the local communities are creating or have already created, Locally Managed Marine Areas (LMMA's). These LMMA's areas are special in the sense that they are protected with the goal to create a sustainable marine environment. With permission from the communities, we will dive these areas, see amazing coral & fish life. While on the Conflict Islands we will have the opportunity to meet the Turtle Rangers & visit the Conflict Islands Conservation Initiative Turtle nursery. We will see first hand the great work they are doing to help the endangered Turtle population in these areas.
Part of our responsibility is to maintain the pristine nature, so the diving groups are limited to a maximum of six divers each, with a local guide. In support of these communities and their environments, we pay a fee, per diver, to visit, called a Kastom Fee, and where we can, we will make a land visit to the community. (Each diver is asked to bring school supplies to pass onto the children in these communities).
You will also have Terry Smith from Pelagic Dive Travel for the duration of the trip. He will meet & greet you at Alotau airport, escort you to your embarkation point, support you throughout the trip until you depart. You will be looked after from start to finish.
THIS WILL BE A DIVE LIVEABOARD WHICH YOU WILL NEVER FORGET!
