Rob Warner was exceptional in his handling of all the curve balls I threw at him, starting with a change of ship then cruise line and finally assisting with obtaining a credit from Royal Caribbean due to a booking mess up of my fault. We are using Rob for our Caribbean cruise next year and Alison and Noel are also using him. Cannot recommend Rob highly enough."

The Vitu Islands are located in the Bismarck Sea north of New Britain, a part of Papua New Guinea in the SW Pacific. The islands are volcanic ocean peaks arising from very deep water and fringed with reefs, hence not atolls. Formerly called the French Islands, they are also known as the Witu Islands. Garove (Vitu Island) and Unea are the largest islands. Garove village is nestled inside the crater of a volcano, complete with sheer cliffs on all sides, with an opening to the sea on the south side. The group was once the chief copra centre of Papua New Guinea, although cocoa is now the main crop harvested.

Prior to WWI the islands were part of German New Guinea, whence the island group plantations were acquired by the shipping company Burns Philp which traded in copra. The islands were occupied by Japanese during WWII. Following the war the plantations on Vitu were taken over by the Coote family. Richard Doyle purchased the Langu plantation in 1993 (and his daughter Tania won Miss PNG a year later). He was a key personality and developed the plantation of copra, cocoa and timber that cover much of the island. He also hosted visitors to this wonderful diving destination.

Yachts also are attracted by the calm mooring of the island's volcanic crater. The canoes made here are sleek, smooth and beautifully carved, and well worth examining. Nutrient rich currents frequently waft across most reefs and as a result there is a profusion of life. Schools of pelagic fish abound, and you will find a great diversity of fish and invertebrates. As there is very little knowledge about these reefs, it is possible to discover new and exciting things on nearly every dive.
