Tufi Dive Resort

Fishing

Venture into Papuan Black Bass country. Reputably pound for pound the best fighting fish in the world. The Musa and Kopwei Rivers will test your angling skills. Guided by experienced resort staff and local inhabitants these trips can be arranged at short notice. For the enthusiastic fisherman overnight at a traditional Oro village and catch the early morning action.

Bushwalking:

Tufi Fiord (Eastern Ridge) and Mt Trafalgar Hike
A great walk to the top of the Tufi Fiord (eastern ridge) some 1 1/2 hours walk one way from the Tufi Resort, the people are very receptive at the village at the end of the fiord, particularly with fresh cool coconut juice.

This village is perched at the very end of the fiord with panoramic views of the entire coastline. The walk is quite breathtaking and about two thirds of the way Maclaren Harbour and Tufi Fiord nearly meet, the distance between both fiords would be no more than 20 feet with sheer drops both sides of about 200 feet. At the village are two old bunkers used by the Americans during the WW11 for anti aircraft gun emplacements.

Bushwalking Continued:

En route we encountered numerous Kokomo's (Horn Bill), parrots and cockatoos. The nesting season for the Kokomos is during the wet, November through to March. Sea Eagles also are common and can be seen majestically souring in the up draft from the wind currents in the fiord below.

From the village we can walk to the base of Mt Trafalgar some 3 hours solid walk one way. This track is not well used and would be a trifle difficult for the less experienced. At the base are a wide variety of bird life including Birds of Paradise. The butterfly season is also during this period when the vine they both feed and pupate is more prolific. At this time a wide variety of butterflies can be seen including, if you are lucky the Alexandra Birdwing, the largest butterfly in the world.
