Papua New Guinea - a diving and cultural paradise

click on PNG map to enlargeIs there another country anywhere with so much diversity? The six million inhabitants of this nation of mountains and islands are spread over 463,000 km2 of mountainous tropical forests, and speak over 800 different languages (12% of the world total). Papua New Guinea occupies half of the second largest island in the world and 160 other islands and 500 named cays.

Located just south of the equator and to the north of Australia, PNG is a diver's paradise with the fourth largest surface area of coral reef ecosystem in the world (40,000 km2 of reefs, seagrass beds, and mangroves in 250,000 km2 of seas), and underwater diversity with 2500 species of fish, corals, and molluscs. There are more dive sites than you can shake a stick at, with many more to be discovered, and barely a diver on them. The dive centres are so far apart that there is only ever one boat at any dive site.

It is one of the few places left in the world where a diver can see macro critters, pelagics, and big stuff, as well as fantastic soft and hard corals. The often misused and abused adjective “pristine” is actually appropriate here, due to low fishing pressure in the area in comparison to other areas of the Coral Triangle, no dynamite fishing, and thanks to a system implemented by dive resorts whereby local reef "owners" receive a small fee for every diver that visits "their" reef. As a result elders make sure that the reefs are not fished.

Best of PNG creates tailor-made itineraries to the four best dive resorts in PNG, Tufi, Lissenung, Loloata, Walindi (and the liveaboard FeBrina), as well as cultural trips, Highland sing-sings, Sepik River mini-expeditions, outrigger safaris, bird watching and mountain treks. Using our expertise and local knowledge, we endeavor to create the perfect trip for every client, matching the right resorts to individual and group desires. We organise all your internal travel arrangements and Port Moresby stop-overs as well as flights from Brisbane, Cairns, Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Nadi and Honaria. You pay the same rates as if you booked directly with the different resorts, hotels, and operators, but to just one company. You can also  pay the resorts directly.Called “the land of a million different journeys”, PNG is one of the last places remaining off the tourist radar with less than 10,000 visitors each year.
