Papua New Guinea is a hard and difficult place to travel. Its capital, Port Moresby, is a dangerous place to be, according to many people. But still, dive shops can be found everywhere, whether you want to do day dives or live-aboard cruises. For the latter however, a boat doesn't leave when not enough people and often it is wiser to arrange this beforehand.
The reefs near Port Moresby are accessible throughout the year, with water temperatures ranging from 24 degrees in August and September up to 26 degrees in March and April. The rainy season is from December to March, with temperatures 28 degrees all year round. Best time for diving is therefore November. The Eastern Fields excursions are possible from November until December and in April and May. Because these waters are PNG property, no Australian boats are allowed here.
More than 170km south west of Port Moresby, we have some of the more famous reefs such as Eastern Fields and Portlock, which are only accessible by live-aboards.
