Deboyne Lagoon is located in the middle of the Louisiade Archipelago, in the Milne Bay Province of Papua New Guinea. The archipelago is a string of ten volcanic islands and coral reefs located SE of New Guinea, between the Solomon Sea to the north and the Coral Sea to the south. Deboyne Lagoon encircles both large and small islands including Panaeati, Panapompom and Nivani islands, and is triangular in shape 26 km by 12 km. The palm-edged islands with thatched huts are surrounded by sandy beaches and 30 deg.C. waters. Villages on Panaeati Island line the southern shore facing the lagoon.

Yachts are regular visitors to the Louisiade Archipelago, and the small island Nivani is a favourite anchorage. Most of the islands are uninhabited, but visiting cruisers are always warmly greeted by the locals in canoes. Activities include swimming, snorkelling, diving, and village tours. (Take a few footballs and school resources to give away to the children and school!) Take the opportunity to examine the local specialities of delightful shell necklaces, and clay pottery

The islands also offer shore expeditions with treks through the jungle, exploring the local exotic flora and fauna that form a significant part of the community's diet. Due to the lagoon's warm and crystal clear water, which allows visitors to snorkel for hours, you will undoubtedly want to snorkel just off the beach, over a reef with lots of fish, and then over a wrecked zero fighter from WWII, complete with propeller and an intact cockpit that lies in less than five metres of water. The Deboyne Seaplane Base was used (for 5 days) by the Japanese during the Battle of the Coral Sea in 1942.
