The Solomon Islands are world-renown for their wreck diving and World War II history, not to mention the abundant marine life, pelagic fish, spectacular wall dives with superb visibility. The climate is tropical, with average daytime temperatures around 85 deg F (29 deg C) and high humidity. The water temperature averages 82 deg F ( 28 deg C).

Solomon Airlines flies from Brisbane to Honiara several times a week. The main point of entry into the Solomon Islands is at Henderson Airport on the island of Guadalcanal, situated approximately 10 minutes drive from the capital of Honiara. The town is situated on the northern coastline and includes a small, picturesque seaport at Point Cruz.
