How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
There is diving for every level here, with reef and wall diving along with numerous wrecks. There is endless opportunities for the underwater photographer. Brilliant soft corals, huge sea fans and hard corals, along with turtles, shoals, manta rays and the occassional hammerhead.

Wrecks are most prolific on the seabed in Guadalcanal, and Gizo also has many wrecks. The wet season here is November to April when severe storms can arrive, but diving is available all year round although the best time is from April - October.

For protection against sharp coral etc. a lightweight wetsuit or lycra suit is advised.
