Scuba Diving Holidays PNG

Because of the diversity of scuba diving locations for holidays near PNG, the GOLDEN DAWN has two rigid hull inflatables. One 18ft / 6mtr zodiac pro that is
powered by a 70 HP outboard, one 14ft / 4.5mtr inflatablescuba diving png powered by a 15hp outboard.

Meet your Captain and CrewThis allows us to anchor GOLDEN DAWN in a suitable anchorage and gives us the ability to move ten scuba divers around with great ease. This flexibility allows one tender to return divers to the comfort of the GOLDEN DAWN, while the other stays on station on the dive site awaiting the divers who generally have longer dives.

Often one of the smaller tenders is dedicated to carrying just cameras to avoid unwanted knocks from clumsy divers on holidays. When the dive site and conditions allow, the scuba diving is done from the GOLDEN DAWN with the divers either returning to the GOLDEN DAWN or being picked up by one of the dive tenders. Night dives are also offered for scuba diving lovers on those on holiday looking to do scuba diving with a twist.png scuba diving holiday

While there is now a DAN recognised recompression chamber in PNG, you should take particular care with deep or long dives. GOLDEN DAWN does carry large quantities of medical oxygen on board but we prefer to use it for making nitrox and not for treatment for the bends.

All divers are encouraged to use correct multilevel skills: start with the deepest part of your dive and finish with a Safety stop after
every dive. Craig will give full dive briefings on any dive requiring one and he or the other trained dive staff will be happy to assist with
scuba diving advice or suggestions concerning a dive or even guide you on the dive in PNG.

However divers will be free to plan and conduct their own dives. Please remember to bring your certification card with you. All divers must be certified in order
to dive. You may be requested to present the said card before being allowed to dive.

CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS All passengers must be formally certified.scuba diving holidays There are two good reasons for this: first, these trips
offer such excellent diving that the time involved in learning basics is wasted. The first several hours of Scuba Diving really demand
all of your attention to become familiar with the skills and the equipment being used. Second; many of the dive sites and conditions
we experience are of an advanced nature. The M.V Golden Dawn is a recognised IANTD training facility (the first in Papua New
Guinea). We offer a variety of courses in the use of NITROX and REBREATHERS to divers who are already certified (open water
diver minimum), and would like to experience the advantages of diving on NITROX and /or the silence of REBREATHERS. These
courses generally don't impede on one's diving or free time. (Read the training facility bulletin for more information)
