This atoll rises up to about 13 meters with some vertical shafts that go down to 35 - 40 meters. The Western shaft boasts a small cave at the rear of the bottom end with Painted Crays inside, while the top is rich with soft corals, mushroom coral, cuttlefish, and crocodilefish. But before you dive, take a moment to reflect on the island's fascinating history. Occupied by the Japanese in 1942, Tulagi quickly became home to a fleet of PT boats and US Navy ships until 1943.

After that, cross the Mboli Passage to Anuha, a beautiful island with sandy beaches and many snorkeling spots along the seagrass patches. Keep your eyes peeled for seahorses and coral bombes swarming with fish.

The Mboli Passage itself is a must-see, located between Nggela Sule and Nggela Pile.

After your dive, head ashore to view the incredible carvings made by the talented locals. While it's not mandatory to buy anything, it's a great way to support the village's enterprising spirit by bringing a piece of their culture home with you.

Mane Island


Your crew will anchor your yacht in the bay, stern to, giving you the chance to dive into the crystal-clear water and try out some water sports in the surrounding islands.
