The Solomon Islands offer extraordinary diving opportunities; crystal clear waters with prolific marine life home to an amazing varieties of fish and corals. In addition, these islands were the site of many WWII battles, as a result there are some outstanding wrecks to be seen. A small sample below:
The USS Aaron Ward
The Aaron Ward can be found in 60 -70m of water, sitting upright and
still largely intact. She is 348 metres long so even with the depth of the water; a couple of dives will allow you to see the wreck comfortably. The Ward is a world-famous wreck and very high on the ‘wow factor’. The visibility around the wreck is generally 20-30 metres.
USS John Penn
The Penn lies on her starboard side, 35m to the upper hull and 58m on the bottom. Due to the consistent currents passing through the area the wreck is has turned into pelagic city, boasting barracuda, tuna, kingfish, trevally and sharks. There are still many in situ artefacts including a very photogenic two ton truck.
