What to do in Manus.

We have the best game fishng in the world with a record five black marlin caught and released in the space of two hours less then five miles from the Pontoo club. Bottom fishing, spearfishing, snorkelling and scuba can be arranged.
Relax after your flight with a cold beer and lobster on the pontoon and watch the crocs fed in the enclosure. then either sleep in the bungalow over the sea if tired or take a trip to the island to stay overnight. Costs K100.00 per night including a meal and guide. Rent a boat or kayak and explore the surrounding reefs and catch your nxt meal. or, explore the rivers looking for wild orchids, spot crocs and observe nature in a tropical setting this can be done in a package tour for K800.00 per week or plan your own trip with guide at the same rate. (costs may differ with petrol purchases and amountper group.)

night life in Lorengau

Every friday and saturday night the young islanders oogie dow on the ponton club for the weekly dances. a mixture of island music, popular rock and local reggae gives the night a uniqe flavour. beer and spirits are cheap and the bouncers ensure that its hassle free. take a drive to the local waterfalls the next morning and refresh in the cold waters then on to the manus interior for a visit to the culture that you didnot know existed.

Just get here to the last untouchedparadise onthe planet before its gone.
