It’s was only 100 or so years ago that adventurers first thoroughly explored the island of Papua New Guinea.

This relatively unknown speck of the planet had been pretty much by-passed due to it’s extreme geography. Yet the soaring mountain ranges and inhospitable terrain have preserved one of the world’s most prolific eco-systems.

Beneath the waterline, lies a vast range of incredible reef systems. These sit firmly inside the Coral Triangle, the area regarded as the marine world's most bio-diverse. Little damaged by man or nature, these reefs are highly prolific.
