Bonarua Island

off the southern coast of Papua

New Guinea

As we followed the coast of Papua New Guinea, the peaks of the dramatic Stanley Owens Range came into view. We arrived at the island of Bonarua in Milne Bay where passengers went onshore to view fishing and weaving demonstrations, and wander through the village, sampling local delicacies. Some went swimming. This was our final opportunity for snorkelling so we went on a zodiac with Criag to a headland. Whilst in the boat we were fortunate to see a pod of dolphins that we followed as they were riding the sea waves. We then went snorkelling and saw some interesting coral and sharks, but the current was very strong.
