- Madang (region) — Volcanic islands and good diving
- Manus — Remote island area
- Milne Bay — The eastern region. Many fascinating islands
- New Britain — Still many visible ruins from WW2, above and below water.
- New Ireland — Land of the country’s first human settlements. Fishing, diving, sailing and surfing, plus interesting culture.
- Central and North — Covers the National Capital District of Port Moresby and the Central and Northern provinces. Starting point for all visits to Papua New Guinea
