Silversea Expedition Cruises A DOBU ISLAND

DOBU ISLAND

Dobu is a small island in the D’Entrecasteaux Group next to Fergusson Island and Normanby Island. The island was formerly feared because of black magic and the local “witch” doctors cursing the healthy or treating the sick. An anthropological study was done by Reo Fortune in the 1930s which resulted in the book “The Island of Sorcerers”. The island is also part of the famous Kula ring. View more

Participants in the exchange system pride themselves with mwali and soulava (armbands and necklaces) that are given and received still today and it is interesting to see how the traditional objects have been adorned with modern paraphernalia. A stroll through the main village on the northwestern tip will show the school and church and trails leading along the shore passing traditionally thatched houses and gardens.

Excursões em DOBU ISLAND

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

After a wet landing onto a white sandy beach, you willl witness a welcome ceremony to Dobu Island. After this you are welcome to explore the island on your own, maybe purchase some souvenirs or enjoy a day of swimming or taking one of our Zodiacs out to the snorkelling platform.


Visit Dobu, a small island next to Fergusson Island in the D'Entrecasteaux Islands in the Pacific Ring of Fire. Explore the rich culture of the island, where the Kula Ring system of ceremonial trade is still practiced by exchanging mwali (armbands) and soulava (necklaces) throughout the Milne Bay region and among thousands of people. Hear from a Kula trader how Kula objects are traded among the islands in the ring.


Stroll through the main village on the northwestern tip of the island. See the historic church built by the London Missionary Society. Dobu was chosen because of its reputation for the use of what was seen as black magic and "witch doctors." The once feared islanders have gone on to hold key roles in government and business in independent Papua New Guinea. Walk the trails along the shore to see traditionally thatched houses and gardens.


Experience local life on the grounds of the Dobu primary school, including a cooking demonstration of a local dish which you may choose to sample.
