Up to 40% off the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea with blue o two



UK-based Tour Operator blue o two are delighted to announce an incredible new special offer to one of the Pacific’s best kept secrets, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.

Fishing was banned in the Solomon Islands over 20 years ago, allowing marine life to flourish and reefs to thrive, earning the Solomons Islands their enviable worldwide diving reputation. Boasting an abundance of WW2 history, there are over 200 ships, 690 aircraft carriers and countless barges to explore, many within recreational diving limits.

Papua New Guinea is bursting with wildlife, and is arguably one of the best diving destinations in the Pacific. Nicknamed as the ‘underwater photographer’s paradise’, sightings often include hammerhead and whale sharks, dolphins, pilot whales, turtles, sea snakes and plentiful macro life. Dive through coral atolls, sea grass beds and barrier reefs in this tropical oasis.
