Our expedition to Papua New Guinea was one of the greatest trips I have had in my 50 years of globe trotting. The quality and quantity of fishes and corals was truly world class.

The chance to interact with the villagers and school children was wonderful. As usual, GDA provided a terrific experience both above and below the water. It was a most memorable time.

Where else can you dive pristine reefs, experience unbelievable marine life, and come across a B-17 that ditched during the war off a remote Island.

Then take an afternoon tour in one of the most culturally diverse lands with 850 indigenous languages spread out among almost as many small societies.

In all my expeditions led by Ridlon and Carin, PNG remains the most memorable. The breadth and depth (no pun intended) of what you experience is absolutely amazing.

Getting There – Papua New Guinea

Getting to Papua New Guinea is not hard but it is long. By far the easiest way is to fly to Brisbane then to Port Moresby. Qantas is currently the only carrier that has a direct nonstop from LAX to Brisbane (BNE). If you want more options, you will fly to Sydney first which is a longer and will normally involve an overnight.

Qantas/Air Niugini or other carriers through Sydney

1. Fly to Brisbane or Sydney

2. Fly to Port Moresby (POM)

. Fly to Alotau

Your final will depend on which part of PNG youll be diving. If you head to Tawali you’ll fly Air Niugini to Alotau from Port Moresby.
