Solomons PNG Master is a liveaboard that previously operated on the Great Barrier Reef of Australia but has now relocated to the Solomon Islands

We are pleased to introduce the newest liveaboard in the Solomon Islands from Master Liveaboard Fleet.  Built in 2004 and known as MV Taka before,  Solomons PNG Master is a custom designed diving vessel with up to 20 guests and a crew of 13 including your Dive Team, Skipper, Boat Crew and Chefs.

Inside she boasts a huge Lounge and Dining area with DVDs, large TVs and a dedicated Camera Area for our Photography guests. Spend time sharing your photos from your adventure, reading a book from our library or just hanging out in air conditioned comfort.

Prefer to lounge outside, no worries, there is plenty of room.  Up top we have a large Sun Deck complete with loungers where you can catch some sun as the world goes by.  On our Second Deck, we have an expansive covered seating area where you can sit back and relax without any worry about UV rays.

Each air-conditioned cabin comes complete with bath towels, bedding, cabinets and storage available for use. Solomons PNG Master features 6 Upper Deck cabins all with ensuite facilities and 6 Lower Deck cabins with shared bathrooms.  All cabins are full air conditioned and come with reading lights, towels, bedding, charging stations, fire warning systems, and fire extinguishers.  Hair dryers and iPod docking stations are available on request. 

Guests will never go hungry on board the Solomons PNG Master boat with Australian, Italian and International meals 

Meals are always important when you are traveling and diving, so the galley staff do their best to produce quality and tasty meals and snacks. Three warm and hearty meals are served daily and snacks are always ample. The menu will include a selection of local vegetables, pork, beef, fresh fish (often caught right off the boat), chicken, pasta, rice, homemade bread, scones, biscuits and of course, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and all the usual condiments to complete the meal. Desserts are always yummy and there is lots of fresh fruit and fresh lime juice, called bush lime. Galley staff are also prepared to assist with special menu requirements, but we request notification of such needs well in advance of the departure date, to ensure that arrangements can be made and supplies obtained. We have a 'Ships-Only Bar' policy and we are fully stocked with spirits, beer and wine. Soft drinks are also available. There is a charge for bar drinks and soft drinks.
