Paradise - - Traveller -

Al­ba­tross Pas­sage, New Ire­land Prov­ince The sig­na­ture dive site in Kavieng is Al­ba­tross Pas­sage, which is the first pas­sage be­tween main­land New Ire­land and the is­land of New Hanover.

At an in­com­ing tide, this nar­row water­way is like fish soup. Ea­gle rays, mob­ula rays, big dog­tooth tuna, bar­racuda, plenty of grey reef sharks and loads of other fish can be seen here on al­most ev­ery dive. The wall it­self is over­grown with big fan corals, black corals and sponges, and this is the home for small crea­tures like nudi­branchs, leaf scor­pi­onfish and pygmy sea­horse.
