Bookings can be made through Enoch Bulunamur.

DÉNTRECASTEAUX ISLANDS ATTRACTIONS
The Kula Circle is a ritualized trading culture that exists within the Milne Bay islands.
Allow Kevin and Steven to explain this fascinating tradition and the significance of the Mwali (Armband), Soulava (Shell necklace) and the Kula Canoes. Even though this tradition is well written about and the canoes can be seen at the annual National Canoe and Kundu Drum Festival, there is something very special about sitting in a village listening to people that are actually involved, tell the history and meaning of this possibly 2000 year old practice.
Arrangements to visit can be made through either Waiyaki Nemani of Sibonai or through Gomwa Eco Guest House.
Should you wish to visit the Louisiade Archipelago area of Milne Bay, then Pala should be your first port of call.
Living in Bwagaoia on Misima Island, he has all the required local contacts to organize excursions out into the remaining islands of this rather remote area.
