M.V. Bilikiki A Live-a-Board Diving Adventure to Remember
Bilikiki has an overall length of 121 feet. There are two immense sundecks, plus a completely separate dive deck with individual gear storage, and two other sheltered decks to help you stay out of the sun. With 10 double staterooms, all air conditioned, and all with private shower and toilet, Bilikiki offers plenty of room and comfort. The two saloons are large and comfortable. You can count on plenty of good food to help you to maintain energy levels for the fantastic diving. The BILIKIKI carries ample fresh water as well as a desalinator, so water will never be a problem.
For those who wish, diving can commence immediately upon arrival, or you may wish to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
Diving is done in the ‘mothership fashion’ with divers being shuttled to nearby dive sites in specially designed dive boats. The Solomon Islands offer reefs, straight walls, drift dives and large pelagic fish. Add to this the thrill of WWII wreck diving and you end up with the perfect diving holiday for everyone, especially photographers.
The Solomon Islands offer plenty of shelter. The boat will be anchored in protected waters and running will be kept to a minimum, with the average run being less than an hour between sites each day.
A full range of hire equipment is available and a full range of courses, from resort, open water and a host of speciality courses, including underwater photography, can be arranged with prior notice. Photographic gear is also available for hire when arranged in advance, and E-6 colour processing is done on board. Your hosts on BILIKIKI are professional diving instructors affiliated with either NAUI or PADI.
Special features of BILIKIKI are the photo room, with 110 and 220 volt charging facilities, a multi format video system that can play both U.S. and Australian tapes, and a boutique so that you can pick up all those little things you may have forgotten to bring or didn’t wish to carry with you.
