RELAX OR EXPLORE

Located on the western fringe of Australia’s Pacific North East, this pristine paradise boasts breathtaking beaches lapped by the crystal-clear waters of the Coral Sea, renowned for their abundant marine life. With its rich culture and history, these islands are widely considered the South Pacific’s best-kept secret.


Stop in at a local resort where you can grab a drink and take a cooling dip in the pool or take a short walking tour of Honiara before you sail off on board MV Taka.


Discover the tiny island of Kovahika and enjoy a guided snorkel to check out the reef fish, turtles and coral gardens; or just relax on the pristine beach.


Visit the village of Olevugha where you’ll spend time at the local school, meet the local community and enjoy traditional music and dance.


Explore the old WW2 wreckage in the shallows, on either a stand up paddleboard, or with your dive/snorkel gear.

Watch a traditional dance, with a special appearance by a bamboo band, then splash around in canoes with the local children.


Dive and explore the remarkable Mane Bay, where rainforest meets reef. This is a truly beautiful and breathtaking spot.


Explore the island’s famous crevasse – Leru Cut. Snorkel through the stunning inlet surrounded by rainforest and shimmering, sun-dappled sand.


Explore Honiara and the National Museum and Art Gallery. Following a final stop at a local coffee shop, it’s time to say farewell, until next time.

The people who know best

Had such an amazing trip on Taka. The food was delicious and plenty of it; the bed was comfortable; the hot showers after being in the water (on amazing dives/snorkeling) were fabulous and the crew were all lovely. Can’t wait to book and go again

Taka was better than I imagined. The photos did not do it justice. It’s an amazing boat that’s super comfortable with an excellent crew. They were knowledgeable, up for an adventure and looked after us without hesitation. Looking forward to my next adventure.
