Is it windy? That is kind of a silly questions don’t you think? Haha We are very very close to the northern tip of Australia and get the same weather, anyone can tell you that far north in winter it pumps most days and generally on the strong side. This area about as tropical as you can get, the waters are super warm and teaming with fish, reefs are lit up with coral and the lagoon are white with sand. There are no charts out here but under the guidance of the experienced Captain of the MV PNG Explorer with his crew of highly trained staff you are in good hands. Predominantly flat water & we could not promise epic waves like we can flat water, but if you are into both the I would be bringing my surfboard.
Imagine pulling up to an atoll or reef system in the middle of the ocean you chose from a Google Earth image only to find it covered with sand quays offering up butter flat water. Or kiting inside a lagoon with turtles and rays cruising below over beautiful white sand followed by as much fresh sashimi of Yellow Fin Tuna you can eat that'd been caught earlier that day. Top the day off with a bonfire on an empty island in one of the most remote places on earth. Take a dive in-between kiting, fishing and eating magnificent food prepped by the boats 2 chefs and you'll be in water that old time divers dream off. PNG is famous for it's diving and it's obvious why when you take the plunge. Don't have a dive ticket? No worries Craig will run through the Padi course on the trip. Truly amazing.
We've chartered the PNG Explorer MV to explore the outer reaches of the Louisiades archipelago off the southeast corner of Papua New Guinea. It's remote, unchartered and completely off the grid. The kiting possibilities are endless with hundreds of miles of reef dotted with islands.
The Cruise Package What we do
- KITE or WINDSURF - Explore remote untouched atolls, sand bars reefs and islands far off the grid.
- DIVE – This is one of the best scuba diving locations in the world. Why not make the most of it? The reef system up here was originally part of the Great Barrier Reef but has been less affected by human contact.
- FISH – Even if you’re not a dedicated fisherman like me, the fishing in this place blows you away. Continually hooking large pelagic fish like Spanish mackerel, Tuna and Sailfish as well inhabitant beasts like Giant Trevally and big Barracuda. We fish on a catch and release program unless it is something we are going to eat that night.
It is our goal to take people to places they might not necessarily think of going to. The great thing about these sorts of places is that for the most part they are untouched and see few visitors while the people in these areas are the real representatives of a nation and out here in the remote southeast archipelago in PNG the few people you do see are some of the warmest and most welcoming.
