Diving Kimbe Bay with Walindi Plantation Resort
Overview

Choose where you sleep

  • Walindi Plantation

Kimbe Bay sports an incredibly diverse marine habitat. World famous dives with names like Emma, South Bay, Inglis Shoals, North Emma, Christine's, Susanne's and Restorf Island are only a few of the more than 200 reefs and dive sites sprinkled throughout Kimbe Bay. All are pristine and undamaged by a rigid policy of 'Look but don't touch.'

70% of all coral species in the Indo/Pacific region are found in Walindi's waters. Few other dive areas in the world can boast such diversity. Walindi management policy is committed to supporting this unique ecology, both below and above water. To this end, the resort is supporting the establishment by the European Union of a Nature and Marine Research Centre within the resort grounds, which will continue to monitor and research all aspects of the ecology in Kimbe Bay and West New Britain.

The coral reefs around Walindi are extraordinarily rich. Over 400 species of reef building corals have been recorded in Kimbe Bay. This is more than half the total number of known coral species in the world. Over 900 species of fish have been recorded and this number will continue to grow as more research is done.

The coral reef communities around Northern New Britain have remained largely undamaged by human activity and Walindi is working hard to ensure that remains the case, using moorings where possible to reduce damage from anchoring.

Walindi Diving has approximately 25 dive sites which are visited regularly using shore-based dive boats. The nearest dive site is a short 5 minute boat ride and the furthest is only 75 minutes from the jetty.

Walindi's burgeoning reputation as one of the world's prime photo spots has inspired the development of Walindi Photo, a full service photo centre offering daily E-6 processing, camera rentals, a well stocked retail shop and all levels of photo instruction.
