Located on the shore of Kimbe Bay in West New Britain Province, Walindi Plantation Resort is an ideal destination for travelers wishing to dive dive dive. This area of Papua New Guinea is fed by the rich Bismark Sea in the Coral Triangle, which continues to prove itself as the center of marine biodiversity. Max and Cecilie, the owners of Walindi Resort, also established the Mahonia Na Dari Research and Conservation Center nearby which focuses on education of PNG school kids (among many other things) to help protect West New Britain’s unique marine & rainforest environments. It is no wonder that Kimbe Bay attracts some of the most renowned divers and marine scientists in the world, along with bird-watchers, NGOs and other nature groups.


The dive operation strives to create a personalized dive experience, proving that Kimbe Bay is truly different underwater. Whip coral gardens tangle with vibrant blue and orange sponges, sharks cruise along huge walls, and anthias dart in and out of the shallow hard coral fields.
