Unfortunately we have been unable to get off ship and explore Island because of dangerous swell. Not safe to tender ashore 🌊🚢🛶. Very disappointing - were very much looking forward to adventure with white beaches and reef being so close to island beaches. Safety first though! Have had to settle with just pictures instead. Feel sorry for locals who had prepared a day of festivities and markets for us.
Gizo Island - Population 7177 (2009 census) - A slice of paradise steeped in World War II history. Gizo is a fascinating destination boasting impressive dive sites, a unique marketplace and stunning tropical scenery. Gizo is most well known for its World War II history when a young lieutenant by the name of John F Kennedy landed on what became known as Kennedy island after his torpedo boat collided with a Japanese vessel. Gizo Island boasts an array of reef and wreckage diving sites odd its coasts. A mix of stunning coral reefs, deep dives, WWII plane wreckage and dive walls make this Island a must see for enthusiastic divers. Gizo Island was named after an infamous local head hunter.

Rabaul - Located on PNG's northeastern tip, this province - blessed with natural beauty but plagued with an unlucky past - has literally risen from the ashes. The former capital of New Britain is a town with a colourful history and no stranger to rebuilding itself from the ground up. It's been destroyed by volcano eruptions in 1937 and 1994, as well as being all but flattened by aerial bombardment in World War II. Its kilometres of underground tunnels built by the Japanese during its occupation in World War II are a testament to its wartime past. Since 1994, Rabaul has returned to life and its harbour is still one of the most impressive in the entire Pacific basin.
