Had a day to spare in Honiara and it's not really the most attractive place and not a lot of options. Tulagi Dive provided snorkelling gear and a brilliant guide (Thank you Andy Mamata!) who took us 12km but a whole world away from Honiara....More
2 well preserved WW2 freighters with some relics still visible (mostly salvaged in WW2 and the 70s).Each is almost 2 seperate dives, the top is more reef like, heaps if colorful fish (eg 4 types of clown fish ) antheas, clouds of Sgt majors etc....More
We did not dive or go snorkeling on Bonegi but it a perfect introduction to the rich marine life of the Solomon Islands. Excellent variety of soft corals, and an impressive diversity of fishes. There is a small charge for admission and for car parking...More
The Bonegi 2 wreck is situated about 20 minutes out of Honiara on a well signposted beach.
Currently the land owners charge SGD30 for access per person. Parts of the wreck are visible above water but it is a short 50m swim from the beach....More
Easy drive from Honiara and some excellent wrecks just off the shore. Fascinating history just off the shore. You will need to rent tanks in town or go with a guide from Tulagi dive and pay an entry fee to the landowners. Good easy dving...More
The Bonegis, especially Bonegi I, are great dives. Hit them on a good day and you won't find better in the world - I've done over 1200 dives around the world, and I just love diving in the Solomons. It's warm, good dive shop in...More
We didn't have enough time to dive so we decided to go snorkeling on Bonegi II, a perfect introduction to the rich marine life of the Solomon Islands. Excellent variety of soft corals, and an impressive diversity of fishes ! not to be missed if...More
Two great shipwrecks to go and dive on. If you want to snorkel you can but you will miss most of the wreck. B1 goes down to 56 metres and B2 about 35. Not too long a drive from the capital. Trust me you can...More
Two fantastic World War II wrecks, suitable for advanced open water divers. Parts of the bow of the Bonegi II are visible from the surface and suitable for snorkelling. The downside of diving in the SI is the price - expect to pay upwards of...More
Hi there, Mbonege and Bonege are the same, it is the just the local spelling and the English spelling. There is Mbonege 1, 2 & 3, different beaches but in the same general area. Generally, Mbonege 2 is the better one to take... More
Hi there, Mbonege and Bonege are the same, it is the just the local spelling and the English spelling. There is Mbonege 1, 2 & 3, different beaches but in the same general area. Generally, Mbonege 2 is the better one to take visitors to, as the Japanese shipwreck is partly sticking out of the water and only about 5m from the shore, therefore it is really great for snorkelers but also brilliant for divers too as it does go a lot deeper down the back end of the ship. Lots of fish to see!! We generally grab two dive tanks each and do the shipwreck at Mbonege 1 and then jut drive 20m up the road to Mbonege 2 and dive there on the same day. You save on hiring the dive gear and entrance to the beach of $100 if you can manage the two dives. They are very easy dives (both are walk in from the beach!) so really good for novice and learner divers too.
