Solomon Islands Discovery Cruises (SIDC) offers a dedicated, small ship adventure cruise programme designed to highlight two of the South Pacific’s truly unspoiled and culturally-rich regions – the Florida and Russell Islands archipelagos.
Operating ex-Honiara, SIDC has employed the 30-metre MV Taka to operate 7 night cruises, with local experts offering insight into the areas unique culture, history and environment plus the opportunity to experience the amazing underwater world.
Guests will have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in both region’s distinctive cultures, land and sea scapes. The cruise itineraries feature visits to remote villages along with plentiful opportunity to discover the region’s amazing coral pastures and abundant marine life with daily dive and snorkel options.
Both areas are also rich in WWII history giving passengers insight into the infamous Guadalcanal campaign in 1942 via the many wrecked US and Japanese aircraft, warships and relics which literally litter the seabed.
