Despite the occasional malfunction or breakdown, the 360 discovery is the flashest permanent vessel in the Solomon Islands…
It runs from Honiara to Auki (in Malaita) every weekday, and once on the weekends… Buying a ticket means wandering down to the docks by about 7:30am and waiting until a car pulls up. Trade is done through the car window. You can risk buying a ticket early from the office, but this is an unreliable method at best.
Of course obtaining a route map or schedule is exceptionally difficult. Solomon Islands hate to disappoint you… so when we were told the 360 would definition come back and pick us up from Tulagi on Saturday afternoon, it was out of kindness (not deliberate misinformation).
Be warned! The 360 does not got back past Tulagi on Saturday afternoons!!
