This adventure starts with a night at Eastcape, the most eastern part of the Papua New Guinea mainland and the jumping off point for all the remote islanders travelling to and from Alotau. There is a small traditional; market here and plenty of beautiful walks along the water way in both directions.
Snorkelling on coral reefs is possible directly off the shore here is calm waters teeming with marine life.
On day 2, we head out to the islands and spend the next 4 nights at Nuakata Island and Yabam Island accommodation. Both are absolute beach front and offer snorkelling right off the beach.
We'll travel by local dinghies between the islands and reefs and also spend time exploring our hosts islands and neighbouring family units. The families here live a subsistence life, catching and growing pretty much their entire diet.
