This custom-designed liveaboard was built with divers in mind to bring you the very best diving holiday experience possible. Previously, sailing the stunning dive sites of the Solomon Islands as Taka, this steel-hulled vessel boasts an experienced boat crew, dive team and chefs to ensure the highest standards of service.
M/V Solomons PNG Master features 12 cabins allowing comfortable accommodation for up to 20 guests. These are categorised into one en-suite premium double cabin, five en-suite premium double/twin cabins, four standard single cabins and two standard twin cabins with shared bathroom facilities.
An incredibly spacious lounge and dining area is located on the main deck of the boat providing plenty of air-conditioned space to unwind and enjoy the phenomenal on-board cuisine after an exciting day of diving. This deck also boasts a dedicated camera area for our photographer guests as well as an expansive dive deck area which leads perfectly to the dive platform from which much of the diving will be done. Each station has plenty of space and storage for your dive kit. This space also provides individual toilets, freshwater showers and rinse tanks for your equipment.
If you would prefer to relax in the stunning sunshine, the large sun deck comes complete with comfortable loungers to lie back and enjoy the breath-taking sea views.
