Solomon Islands Nature & Wildlife
The Marovo Lagoon is the largest saltwater lagoon in the world. The waters are calm and the sea-life abundant. Turtles, dolphins, rays and the occasional whale, magnificent coral gardens and prolific tropical and pelagic fish life abound, all surrounded by magnificent beaches and rainforest. Sea kayaking is an ideal way to get back to nature, to discover this stunning environment, while also sampling genuine Pacific Island hospitality and culture whilst staying in Eco-lodges within villages dotted around the lagoon.
Our Sea Kayak Expeditions are based at the fabulous Uepi Island Resort situated on the magnificent Marovo Lagoon.
Uepi enjoys an international reputation for world class scuba diving & snorkelling, romantic honeymoons, exciting cultural & nature tours, 'Get-A-Way' relaxation & genuine Pacific Island hospitality.
The kayak expeditions commence in the outstanding environment of the Marovo Lagoon; about 90 kms long & 6 kms wide, bounded on one side by a tropical barrier reef & on the other by two mountainous islands. The tours may extend to Nono Lagoon or outer ocean areas.
Paddlers travel the lagoon, experience its great reefs, beaches, islands & forests, meeting the friendly Marovo people & learning about their culture.
