Over the years there have beeen posts asking how to do this.
It is fairly simple to cross with locals in an outboard boat (sometimes referred to as a banana boat), from Bougainville to either Choiseul or the Shortland Islands. However in the last couple of months, two foreigners have been arrested in separate incidents in Choiseul after making the crossing without border clearance. Someone who made the crossing legally to Shortlands recently has passed on this advice about where to acquire the…

Gizo Island

We are stopping off at Gizo Island for a day as part of a cruise in October. Does anyone know if there is good snorkelling close to the port or do we have to book tours? Is snorkelling good at Gizo?

Is it possible to travel to Vanuatu ( or even Fiji )by sea either from Honiara or Santa Cruz ? I read there were sailors who provided similar services in the past but can't find any contact, Honiara yatch club wasn't equally helpful ? Thanks in advance !

Hi,
does anyone know of a public boat going between Munda and Seghe?
I can find the connections from Honiara to Gizo, stopping in Seghe but not in Munda it seems? And of course there is the boat between Gizo and Munda. But is there really no interconnection between Munda and Seghe by boat??
If not by public boat, does anyone have an idea how much we would have to pay for a charter and which guesthouse in Munda could organize it?

I'm planning a 3 week itinerary through the Solomon islands and was…

Thought I´d share our experience on our recent visit to the Solomon islands October 2016. We visited Gizo, Munda, Marovo Lagoon and had a day in Honiara before and after.
As some of you may know; the Solomon islands is expensive - fuel costs and domestic flights will dig into your pockets, - but if you are after an exotic place few ventures, love the sea, and where everyone seems to know everyone, - then it´s well worth it. Weather was mostly sunny, some overcast days and some rainshowers…
