How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
The reefs here are still pretty pristine, and hard and soft corals are numerous in the lagoons, and around the islands and reefs. There is diving for every level of experience, deep reefs, shallow coral gardens, walls and of course WWII wrecks. The main diving areas are Madang for coral and Hansa Bay where you will encounter many shallow wrecks. Tufi has the fjords of Cape Nelson and Wlindi has sone of the most spectacular pinnacle and reef diving. There are also many live-aboard boats that visit the Islands and coral atolls. A lightweight wetsuit or lycra suit is advisable as protection from abrasion etc. The wet season is from December - April but diving is all year round.

"Closer" Note: This was the only shot taken. I only took one shot because I could see that the turtle was uncomfortable. I think close range flashes on Turtles, especially at night, are very disorienting for the animal. Something to consider...
