Want to head to Savo or Florida Islands? Another great option beside a banana boat is Ripples Boat Charters. I’ve been on a few trips now with Henk who runs Ripples and can highly recommend the service.
The boat takes 12 adults comfortably and there are life jackets on board. Banana boats can be great, but for longer trips I feel much safer in a bigger boat and my backside has thanked me every time! Through Ripples you can organise transport for day trips, weekends away, fishing charters, diving trips, resort transfers, and even sunset cruises.
Exploring Solomon Islands from the water is a must do. On the last trip I did, we were surrounded by a pod of dolphins who cruised with us for a good fifteen minutes or so. Henk slowed the boat down and we were able to safely stand up to take photos and enjoy the magical experience.
The flexibility & friendly service Henk offers makes for an excellent break from Honiara. My friends and I will definitely be booking again!
