A Great Trip

Bilikik offered two great adventures on land to visit the WWll memorial and a day hike to the waterfall with lunch in a jungle lodge. Not only that we were offered the opportunity to meet with the local villagers, be a part of the floating markets, and given the opportunity to see local dances from a village. The boat and its crew made diving enjoyable and easy. The food was great and there was plenty of hot water. Plus, the boat managers and guides were some of the best leaders I have experienced while diving. It was a fun trip !! The only downfall was the weather.

The 3 best things were the Dive Guides, the boat crew, and opportunity to visit with the Solomon Island people.

One of the most incredible trips ever taken.

We traveled to forty dive sites over 9 days that were among the most beautiful in the world. The Balikini is the only liveaboard with permission from island tribal leaders to dive in their waters. The coral reefs were unbelievable and protected because of limited access. The concern about protecting the reefs is notable and the beauty of the reefs is impressive because of the limited access by divers.
