THE WORLD FAMOUS BIKINI ATOLL SHARK PASS:
HOW DO I GET THERE?
Bikini Atoll is located approximately 600 miles northwest of Majuro, the capital. Bikini is serviced weekly by AIRMarshall Islands which uses a twin engine commuter aircraft.
The current flight schedules allow you to depart Honolulu for Majuro Monday mornings on Continental Micronesia's Island Hopper. As the Marshalls are across the date line, you will arrive in Majuro Tuesday afternoon. After a night's rest, you will board the flight to Bikini Wednesday morning. The return flight from Bikini is scheduled to arrive back in Majuro by 3:00 p.m. on the following Wednesday. The flight out to Honolulu would be on that same evening.
Marshalls Dive Adventures will book your tickets on Air Marshall Islands and have them waiting for you when you arrive. The flight allows you to bring a total of 32 pounds of luggage. Weight restrictions apply so if you have excess baggage (over 32 pounds), please let us know at the time of your booking, so we can arrange the space which will be invoiced at check-in at additional cost.
WHERE DO I STAY?
On Majuro, we recommend you stay at the Hotel Robert Reimers which is conveniently located adjacent to the Marshalls Dive Adventures dive shop.
