Join Mark for a 10-night magical cruise on our exclusively chartered live-aboard boat. The Solomon Islands in the South Pacific are a hotspot for some of the most fascinating whales and dolphins on the planet, as well as magnificent coral reefs for snorkelling and diving.
• Travel past far-flung tropical islands, enjoying the scenery, and taking our time to watch dolphins, whales and seabirds.
• Fabulous chance of seeing a wide variety of cetaceans such as Bryde’s, sperm and dwarf sperm whales; pilot, pygmy killer, melon-headed, false killer and killer whales; Cuvier’s, Longman’s and Blainville’s beaked whales; rough-toothed, Fraser’s, Risso’s, Indo-Pacific bottlenose, spinner, spotted and striped dolphins.
• A very special and exciting highlight is the chance of seeing the rare Omura’s whales (aerial photo above) and Deraniyagala’s beaked whales (illustration above)., which occur in very few locations.
• Snorkelling on some of the world’s most spectacular reefs, with opportunities to scuba dive.
• A small group of just 16 passengers.
• An exclusively chartered boat, the MV Bilikiki (all cabins are ensuite and air-conditioned) with highly experienced crew. Because we have an exclusive charter, we can take as much time as we like to investigate wildlife sightings and enjoy a flexible itinerary. We are in no rush!
• Lots of species of seabirds and land birds, including many endemics and regional specialities – everything from boobies and frigatebirds to Solomon Island sea eagle and eclectus parrot.
