M/V Star Dancer to Papua New Guinea
With many different itineraries, the M/V Star Dancer offers divers the opportunity to visit many times without ever repeating sites.
From January through March and during July and August, Star Dancer embarks from Rabaul, rich in history and protected from the southeasterly tradewinds by the Gazelle Peninsular. In the early months, Star Dancer leaves Rabaul for the South Coast of New Britain Island where divers enjoy some of the best critter diving available along with an exciting up-the-river trip to a fresh water blue hole for more diving. In July and August, the diving around Rabaul offers great variety from lovely fans and whips to sharks to frog fish and much more.
The rest of the year, Star Dancer embarks from Walindi Plantation located on West New Britain Island on the east side of the Willaumez Peninsula, offering a variety of itineraries which include Kimbe Bay, Father's Reef, Lolabau Island and the Witu Islands. On certain special itineraries Star Dancer also visits Kavieng on the northern tip of New Ireland.
