MV FeBrina itineraries and diving
The MV FeBrina dives the areas of Kimbe Bay, the surrounding waters along the northern coast of New Britain such as the Witu Islands to the north west and Fathers Reefs to the north east, the channels between New Hanover and New Ireland (Kavieng area), Rabaul and South Coast New Britain. For selected departures, MV FeBrina also travels to other dive areas in Papua New Guinea.
The areas FeBrina dives are home to prolific and diverse marine creatures and corals. Each area has it's speciality, and as most of our cruises cover at least two and often more destinations, we can offer many different types of diving in the one voyage.
Most diving is from FeBrina's very well laid out dive deck, with easy access via the water level dive platform.Some of the reefs are current washed .... without current the spectacular marine life would not be there, however, the wide range of dive sites in each area means that it is not necessary to dive at a site if currents are unmanageable at the time.
The Witu Islands, to the north west of Kimbe Bay, are a remote group of islands with a wide variety of dive types to visit. The islands and reef are of volcanic origin and rise from very deep water. Garove Harbour is actually a submerged volcanic crater. Nutrient rich currents frequently waft across most reefs and as a result there is a profusion of life. Schools of pelagic fishes abound on the world renowned Lama Shoals, a sea mount rising to within 15 feet of the surface from the surrounding deep waters.
Fathers Reefs, to the north east of Kimbe Bay along the northern coast line of New Britain, are a series of off shore reefs, which are the sunken remains of a huge extinct volcanic caldera. The reefs have interesting topography with swim throughs and arches adorned with soft corals and other sea life. Being offshore, these reefs attract many pelagic species including shark, tuna, barracuda, turtles and rays, which all come in to feed off the prolific reef fish and other invertebrate species that have settled here.
Rabaul and the South Coast of New Britain are a critter lover's heaven. White sand beaches and uninhabited tropical islands stretch along the Southern coastline of the island of New Britain, with rainforest coming right down to the waters edge. There are some drift dives in the channels created between the islands, however the speciality of this region is the amazing variety of rarely seen and unusual critters.
