Bilikiki

Bilikiki large opt

In 1989 MV Bilikiki sailed as the first full-service luxury live aboard dive vessel in the Solomon Islands. She has 7 to 14-night world-class diving itineraries & she offers spectacular village visits.

"Bilikiki is very simply a grand classic.  She offers the highest standard diving with comfy accommodation & top-notch cuisine.  Not luxury standard but excellent nonetheless.  My time on the boat ... the unbeatable diving with amazing corals, intriguing critters, and sharks whizzing around us ... plus, the visits to islands where we bought the most outstanding wood carving imaginable ... well, it was simply breathtaking.  For me, this is nothing less than a "must-do" diving experience!     Dominick Macan

Bilikiki Interior Set

She's big, bold & beautiful

MV Bilikiki is 40 meters (125 feet) in length and has a 24 foot beam.  This exceptionally large size with the extra-wide hull which was built for South Pacific seas, are two of the main reasons guests from around the world still say that the Bilikiki is one of the most spacious and comfortable vessels that they have travelled on.  She was, by the way, also one of the first in the world to offer private showers and toilets in every cabin.

The sundeck is huge and you'll find plenty of covered areas for your down-time.   Everything is spacious, the dive deck, the charging stations and camera areas  And, you'll love the very experienced and enthusiastic crew.  The food is wonderful and fresh as much of it - particularly fruits & vegetables are bought from villagers along your route.

Photographers always appreciate the facilities provided and the space to store equipment and work with your artwork.   Power is 240V and Australia style 3-prong outlets but there are also American style 110V 60 outlets for charging cameras, strobes, divelights, etc.

Itineraries

7 night trips are usually within the Florida Islands, Russell Islands & Mary Island.  10 and 14 night trips often add in Marovo Lagoon in the New Georgia Islands.  The rule of thumb, however, is to keep rotating the sites visited to protect the dive sites and creatures we come to see.

The dive sites are suitable for beginners as well as well as advanced divers - with the exception of certain wreck dives.

You'll have the opportunity to access remote island villages which seldom receive visitors and you'll find the people immensely welcoming.   We always recommend that visitors bring gifts.
