Bikini Atoll (Marshall Islands) Itineraries

Located in the remote Republic of the Marshall Islands near Micronesia, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bikini Atoll is one of the most famous places in the world for wreck diving - a true diver’s bucket-list destination for any serious wreck diver. After WWII, the United States gathered a mock naval fleet in order to test the effects of different atomic bombs on warships. Between 1946 and 1958 the US tested 67 nuclear bombs, most notably during ''Operation Crossroads''.

Nowhere else can you dive such a fantastic collection of wrecks, including battleships, submarines, destroyers, and most notably the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga. Over 60 years later, the nuclear ghost fleet (as these wrecks are best known), rest in crystal blue waters that have since become home to an abundance of marine life with thriving reefs and corals. Only since 1996 has Bikini Atoll been open to diving, making this destination a one-of-a-kind combination of spectacular historic wrecks in a remote and otherwise untouched tropical paradise. All divers must hold a technical certification as most of the wrecks sit at 50m or deeper.


Bikini Atoll - 11 Days / 10 Nights to 14 Days / 13 Nights
Located in the remote Republic of the Marshall Islands near Micronesia, Bikini Atoll is one of the most famous places in the world for wreck diving. After WWII the US gathered a mock naval fleet in order to test the effects of different atomic bombs on warships. Between 1946 and 1958 the US tested 67 nuclear bombs, most notably during ''Operation Crossroads''. Nowhere else can you dive such a fantastic collection of wrecks, including battleships, submarines, destroyers, and most notably the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga. Over 60 years later, the nuclear ghost fleet (as these wrecks are known) rest in crystal blue waters that have since become home to an abundance of marine life with thriving reefs and corals. Only since 1996 has Bikini Atoll been open to diving, making this destination a one-of-a-kind combination of spectacular historic wrecks in a remote and otherwise untouched tropical paradise.

As the wrecks of Bikini Atoll are only suited for extended range diving, there will be 2 technical dives offered per day. Divers will be responsible for planning their own dives, with the assistance of the Cruise Director who has dived the wrecks of Bikini a number of times already. For safety, the minimum surface interval between dives is 4 hours and it is mandatory to take an afternoon off mid-trip (optional land tour and beach BBQ will be offered instead of diving). Travel time between Ebeye Island and Bikini Atoll is 23-34 hours depending on conditions. It may be possible to dive the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen wreck near Kwajalein as a check dive before sailing overnight to Bikini Atoll.

Requirements: Technical diving certified - minimum PADI Tec 50 or equivalent with wreck diving experience and 100+ logged dives

Solomon Islands

Время для посещения: Дайвинг-сафари и дейли-дайвинг на Соломоновых островах возможны в течение всего года.

Климат: Поскольку Соломоновы острова расположены всего на несколько градусов южнее экватора, здесь царит субэкваториальный очень влажный климат. Сезоны выражены не четко, дожди возможны в любой период, но обычно длятся недолго. Муссоны с ноября по апрель приносят немного больше ливней. Среднегодовая температура воздуха варьируется от 26°С до 28°С.

Температура воды: Температура воды обычно колеблется в пределах от 27°С до 29°С.

Визы: Граждане РФ, Украины и Казахстана должны оформить предварительное разрешение на въезд, с которым можно получить визу по прилету. Гражданам Белоруссии визу на Соломоновы острова надо получать заранее.

Логистика: Международный аэропорт Соломоновых островов расположен в столице страны Хониара (HIR). Большинство международных рейсов прибывает сюда из Брисбена (Австралия). Есть также несколько рейсов из Нанди (Фиджи) и Порт-Морсби (Папуа - Новая Гвинея).

Валюта: Национальной валютой Соломоновых островов является доллар Соломоновых островов (SBD). Выдача наличных денег в банкоматах и оплата кредитной картой возможны только в крупных городах и на курортах (обычно с комиссией 5%). Для обмена валют лучше всего использовать доллары США (USD) или Австралии (AUD).

Форма одежды: На дайвинг-сафари идеальна легкая воздушная одежда, которая также предлагает защиту от тропического солнца. При посещении местных деревень желательна длинная юбка или шорты ниже колен.
