This custom-designed liveaboard was built with divers in mind to bring you the very best diving holiday experience possible. Previously sailing the stunning dive sites of the Solomon Islands as M/V Taka, this steel-hulled vessel boasts an experienced boat crew, dive team and chefs to ensure the highest standards of service.
Solomons PNG Master features 12 cabins allowing comfortable accommodation for up to 20 guests. These are categorised into one en-suite premium double cabin, five en-suite premium double/twin cabins, four standard single cabins and two standard twin cabins with shared bathroom facilities.
An incredibly spacious lounge and dining area is located on the main deck of the boat providing plenty of air-conditioned space to unwind and enjoy the phenomenal on-board cuisine after an exciting day of diving. An expansive dive deck leads perfectly to the dive platform, and also boasts a dedicated camera area for our photographer guests. Individual dive stations provide plenty of space and storage for your dive kit. This area also provides individual toilets, freshwater showers and rinse tanks for your equipment.
If you prefer to relax in the sunshine and fresh air, the large sun deck comes complete with comfortable loungers to lie back and enjoy the breath-taking sea views.
