We did the 7 night cruise aboard the Taka Liveaboard and visited the Central Province in the Solomon Islands this August.

We were highly impressed by the very attentive and friendly crew on board the Taka, they ran the boat very well and clearly focused on customer service and safety.

The dive sites were really great and we visited a number of different sites per day which kept things new and exciting.

I was hugely impressed with the Taka liveaboard for so many reasons.

The boat was clean, well-organized and well-serviced. The food was so delicious and there was plenty of it to go around. The dive sites were pristine with beautiful corals and stunning scenes for any budding photographers such as I am.

I also enjoyed getting a chance to learn some of the local culture.
