You can’t deny that snorkelling is just as exciting as diving when you’re in an exquisite paradise.
Pull on your fins, demist your mask and prepare to explore from the clear waters of the Buka Passage in Bougainville to the huge variety of coral, fish and wartime wrecks of Manus. Snorkelling off the coast of Papua New Guinea is enchanting.
- Snorkel in the exceptionally clear waters and delight in the abundant fish and beautiful coral in the fiord-like rias at Cape Nelson (Oro Province).
- Marvel at the flat coral beds at Submarine Base at Tavui Point where Japanese subs pulled right up to the edge of the reef (East New Britain). The drop off is eerie but spectacular.
- Glide by war wrecks, big fish, coral and sharks around the stunning group of islands in New Ireland.
- Retreat from Moresby on a day trip to Lion Island, off Bootless Bay. Tours include snorkelling gear, shade, and light refreshments.
- Brag to the divers in Kimbe Bay about the huge coral and fish life you saw snorkelling at Walindi.
Always ask your accommodation or guide where the currents are.
