There are some great wrecks in the Solomons I have wanted to dive for some time so I have done some research and come up with a list of what seem to be the best wrecks there working up to what I am sure has got to be one of the most appealing and least dived wrecks in the South Pacific, the USS Atlanta
Here is the list I've put together and plan to dive over a 9 day period with 2 dives/day Some of the dives are an easy shore dive with the remainder being a short boat ride.
USS Aaron Ward 70m
USS John Penn 58m
USS Kanawha 57m
Azumasan Maru 50m
Sasako Maru 58m
RNZS Moa 40m
USS Atlanta 120m
The group will be limited to 8 and preferably all CCR to keep the cost and logistics down but if there are some OC divers wanting to join us then you're welcome also. If you can't dive to the Atlanta there are plenty of options for you or you can dive as support for the deeper dives.
The initial plan is to go in May but it's early days and nothing is set yet so if there are some of you who can't make it in May but can sometime between April-July, I can't see a problem moving the dates to suit us.
If this sounds like a trip you'd like to do and you're suitably qualified and experienced put your name down and lets make it happen.
