This area is a mix of pristine coral reef and muck, not a normal combo but it make sense ‘cause the muck is full of food for the reef and reef critters. Not yet an over used, worn out destination there is still a chance to see some pretty rare things like Mimic Octopuses, Merlot’s Scorpionfish and unusual pipefish and cuttlefish, there is even something called a Bugs Bunny Scorpionfish but I didn’t see one of those unfortunately. Lots of angelfish and scoripionfish varieties and a rays and eels too. Milne Bay is along Papua New Guinea’s south and most of the diving spots are to the north and through the centre so it’s a different vista from some of the more popular dives here. This is a good spot for night diving and most of the liveaboats will take you out through the passages in the evenings or along some of the beach dives - there are sharks though, so you have to be prepared to change your plans. The water is warm but you need a suit to protect from stings, you should also mind the current.
