What did the guests love most about their time spent in the Solomon Islands?
It’s difficult to narrow this down as every day uncovered unique, first-time experiences for all the guests. Skull Island, an ancient burial ground for former chiefs was a particular highlight. Here, old sculls, obtained during the headhunting days of old create a fascinating yet eerie display. Walking in Rendova Island village was also an engaging experience. The clients felt fully immersed in the culture as they were warmly welcomed by the local people who taught them about their way of life, history, and even put on a spectacular display of a traditional war dance.
Throughout the Solomons, there are constant reminders of the part these islands played in World War II. You can dive excellently preserved wrecks and visit the islands US President John F. Kennedy was based at during the war. There is a multitude of history at every step and one that blends ancient civilisation with modern-day warfare and now tourism. Guests were left amazed and somewhat pensive after snorkelling the wreck of a US fighter plane near Double Island. The helicopter ride to find these two remote islands was also spectacular, as were all heli flights throughout the trip.
