Explore Papua New Guinea
Conducted Group Tour aboard M/V PNG Master
November 18-28, 2022
Papua New Guinea -- Offering some of the finest diving in the Pacific, Papua New Guinea (PNG) should be on your bucket list. PNG dive sites are so pristine and remote that new marine species are still being discovered. Pretty much anything can be spotted: hammerheads, whale sharks, mantas, dolphins, and pilot whales. All this awaits you exclusively as there are almost no other dive operations around. For macro lovers, indulge in world-class muck diving. Vibrant coral atolls and walls, colourful barrier reefs, amazing WWII wrecks and abundant wide-angle subjects all make a great shooting for underwater photographers and videographers. Papua New Guinea has it all!
M/V PNG Master -- Serving both the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, the Solomons PNG Master is a custom designed diving vessel with 12 cabins accommodating up to 20 guests. You will be served by a crew of 12, including Captain, dive team, boat crew, and chefs. Inside, she boasts a huge lounge and dining area with DVDs, large TVs, a library, and a dedicated camera area for our photographer guests. All cabins are air conditioned for your comfort.
Tour Leader Tina Robinette-Miller -- Tina is Island Dreams Travel's manager. With decades of experience in the travel industry and a long-time love of diving, Tina will be there to make your PNG adventure seamless.

Air Travel to Port Moresby and Tufi Station -- Most North American travelers fly from Los Angeles to Brisbane, Australia, Singapore or Hong Kong. From these cities connecting flights to Port Moresby are on Air Niugini. Of these options, only Brisbane offers daily flights to Port Moresby. Singapore and Hong Kong are offered once a week. PNG Air flies between Port Moresby and Tufi Station on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Flights are limited, one of the reasons the diving is still so pristine. PNG Master departures coincide with flight schedules so that unwanted overnights are minimized, although depending on your choice of carrier in some instances an overnight may be required.
