Papua New Guinea is a special destination for divers, birdwatchers and travellers ... and one of the very special places within PNG is Kimbe Bay, New Britain Island.

WALINDI PLANTATION RESORT nestles on the shores of Kimbe Bay and Max and Cecilie Benjamin, their family and staff have been proudly showing off the Kimbe Bay reefs to visiting divers for over 30 years.

Walindi Resort is also home port to the boutique liveaboard dive vessel, MV FeBRINA.  With Captain Alan Raabe at the helm, FeBrina has been exploring the waters of New Britain further afield from Kimbe Bay for over 24 years.

Our itinerary will include dives at Kimbe Reefs, Witu Islands, and Fathers Reefs, offering a stunning variety of walls, coral gardens, black sand diving, and even volcanic islands with dramatic reefscapes, arches and swim throughs. 

We have arranged for early arrival and late departure stays at Walindi Plantation Resort, with options to include daily diving or not. The travel time to New Britian is long and arduous so you may want to extend your diving a few days, or just stay at the resort and try some birding or sight seeing excursions. Pricing will be discounted from published rates, the details of which will follow sometime before you are able to book your air travel.
