Welcome!

Papua New Guinea is a special destination for divers, birdwatchers and travellers ... and one of the very special places within PNG is Kimbe Bay, New Britain Island.

WALINDI PLANTATION RESORT nestles on the shores of Kimbe Bay and Max and Cecilie Benjamin, their family and staff have been proudly showing off the Kimbe Bay reefs to visiting divers for over 30 years.

Walindi Resort is also home port to the boutique liveaboard dive vessel, MV FeBRINA.  With Captain Alan Raabe at the helm, FeBrina has been exploring the waters of New Britain further afield from Kimbe Bay for over 24 years.

FeBrina Itineraries

Getting Here

Getting to Walindi Resort and MV FeBrina is a short flight from Port Moresby, PNG's International gateway, to Hoskins (Kimbe) airport, West New Britain.

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. I am hard pressed to think of anywhere on earth that has this combination of vibrant health, diversity and beauty.

Febrina is one of those rare nuggets of authenticity in a growing sea of fabrications.

The reefs are pristine and offer what I assume is diving as it was 100 years ago. The bonus was Orcas on the last day, something that I will not soon forget.

Walindi is a beautiful hotel in a gloriously tropical surrounding. The diving is absolutely top class and worth the effort getting there.
