Colorful coral reefs, azure water, and two unspoiled dive sites await, so get creative and you could win a trip to Papua New Guinea.
As any passionate diver will attest, exploring a newly discovered underwater paradise in a faraway place that reveals mysteries of the sea is the ultimate experience. In Papua New Guinea, two pristine sites, near Tufi Dive Resort and Walindi Plantation Resort, navigated only by a rare few, await exploration and an official designation.
So now is your chance to win a trip and potentially have the honor of assigning these aquatic playgrounds with a memorable title. “The Name Your Own Dive Site” contest runs through August 31st and if you win, you and your dive buddy will receive a free trip to Papua New Guinea for the naming and ribbon-cutting ceremony. And, undoubtedly, some quality dive time in the 83-degree crystal clear water. Papua New Guinea’s vibrant reefs sport an incredible diversity of marine species from Pygmy seahorses to magnificent whale sharks.
Distinguished marine scientist, Prof. Charles Veron, recently inspected the reefs of Kimbe Bay on behalf of The Nature Conservancy and enthused “The coral reefs of Kimbe Bay take me back forty years, to a time when corals grew in lush profusion, untroubled by the problems that beset them today. A short boat ride from Walindi Resort and I am diving on reefs that have half the coral species of the world, all awaiting those rare photo opportunities that come only with the clearest water. I am hard pressed to think of anywhere on earth that has this combination of vibrant health, diversity and beauty.”
Beyond the spellbinding diving, there’s also plenty to see and experience above water.
*Contestants for the Sweepstakes must be from the U.S. or Canada. The prize will include round-trip airfare from Los Angeles to Papua New Guinea, five night’s accommodation with meals at either Tufi Dive Resort or Walindi Plantation Resort and, of course, diving with an underwater ribbon-cutting ceremony announcing the new site name!
