Wow! Have we got a deal for you! Diviac is currently offering a generous 50% off liveaboard cruises to the Solomon Islands aboard the Taka.

This special deal is available on certain cruises through mid-September.

If you’d like a 7-night liveaboard cruise, you can apply this deal to either the August 9th or August 30th departures. Both of these dive safaris sail the Central Province route, which combines the Florida Islands and the Russell Islands into one amazing cruise.

If you’d prefer a 10-night liveaboard cruise, you may apply this 50% off deal to the August 16th and September 6th departures. Both of these sail the Central and Western itinerary which allows you to visit the Florida Islands, Russell Islands, Mary Islands and the world-famous Marovo Lagoon.

These liveaboard trips are incredibly popular, so don’t hesitate to book. We aren’t sure how long space will be available on these last-minute departures.

MV Taka

The MV Taka is a mono-hulled dive vessel measuring 100 feet (30 meters) in length. Built in 2004 and refurbished in 2015, she is spacious both inside and out with roomy cabins and plenty of common area space.

There are 13 cabins onboard falling into four different categories. These range from quad share cabins to a master suite. The budget cabins have shared bathrooms, while the upper deck rooms boast en suite bathrooms. There’s a space for every budget on the Taka.

Furthermore, the large and open dive deck is a great base for exploring the underwater world of the Solomon Islands. For photographers, there is a designated storage area and plenty of charging points. As an added bonus, the majority of the diving takes place from the dive decks rather than skiffs so that the crew can offer more dives per day.

When you’re hungry from all that diving, the chef has prepared meals that combine the best of local cuisine with western comforts.

Diving with the Taka is a well-rounded experience for this wishing to explore the Solomon Islands.

Solomon Islands

Amazingly diverse, yet wonderfully uncrowded, the Solomon Islands offer a wide range of tropical dive environments. These include caverns, reefs, wrecks, large sea fans, steep walls, soft corals and muck. The marine biodiversity is stunning and the WWII history found in the wrecks leaves divers to wonder about years gone by. Furthermore, the reefs have remained healthy due to the lack of pressure incurred through tourism. All of these factors combined, create a dive destination that is out of this world.

The major dive areas can be defined as Guadalcanal, Tulagi, Munda, and South Marovo Lagoon. Guadalcanal and Tulagi host a wide variety of WWII wrecks as well as many other shipwrecks. Munda and South Marovo Lagoon feature beautiful reefs, sheer walls, muck diving and some sites that attract a number of pelagic species. While most of the reefs begin just off shore, the wrecks might require a bit of a swim or a boat ride. Some of the wrecks can be quite deep, reaching 213 feet (65 meters) or more. There is something for every level of diver in this South Pacific nation.
