The Arnavon Islands lie midway between Santa Isabel and Choiseul of the Solomon Islands. Amidst a paradisiacal setting of white beaches, lagoons and coral reefs lives an extraordinary diversity of marine animals. The islands are one of the most important rookeries in the western Pacific for the endangered Hawksbill Turtle. They also support commercially prized animals such as beche-de-mer (sea cucumbers), trochus, black and gold lip pearl oysters, and giant clams. The area's cash economy has traditionally relied on harvesting them based around three villages, Kia, Posarae and Waghena.
In the 1980's when prices for shellfish went way up, they were overharvested and the stocks were depleted, one by one. In order to stop this, and to try to allow turtle and shellfish populations to recover, a no-take marine reserve was created with an alternative sustainable deep-water fishing plan to provide the communities with food and income while taking the pressure off the marine invertebrates. Six community conservation officers - two from each village - monitor the project. Visitors can travel ashore to see how the conservation efforts are helping rejuvenate the island before enjoying snorkelling and glass bottom boat tours.
Currently we have no major cruise ships visiting Arnavon Islands in the 2016-2018 seasons.
Future sailings will be shown here as they become available, and alternative ports in the region can be viewed at South Pacific Cruises. Please contact one of our cruise specialists today on 1800 121 187 if you require further assistance.
