The Korumolun Island dive site is made up of several wall ledges where a huge variety of colourful marine life make their homes. There's a rock wall and several interesting rock formations overgrown with corals.

Nearby dive site, Mirror Pond, is more famous for its occasional visiting salt water crocodile than for its fish, but there is still plenty to see (when the crocodiles haven't scared all the bigger fish away.

The Solomon Islands are well known for their Japanese WW2 wrecks, including ships and several planes.

Shallow water stretches quite a long way off shore in this region creating the prefect habitat for pipefish and shrimp gobies. Visibility is generally very good and warm oceans mean there is good diving for most of the year.
