TRAVEL FROM KWAJALEIN ATOLL TO BIKINI ATOLL ABOARD THE WINDWARD:

The voyage from Kwajalein Atoll Airport to Bikini is 215 nautical miles, 65 miles in the sheltered waters in the lee of Kwajalein Atoll and 150 miles of open seas from the northerly point of Kwajalein to Bikini. The open seas leg is around 18 hours and the sheltered leg is 7 hours.

The entire trip takes about 25 hours depending on sea conditions and current. There is an option of breaking the ocean crossing at Wotho or Rongelap Atoll for a wall dive on the way to Bikini Atoll. WothoAtoll is about halfway to Bikini from the top of Kwajalein and only a small deviation from the direct route. There is the possibility of a wreck dive in Kwajalein Atoll on the first morning in some instances if we have guests coming via Guam and Hawaii on the same trip and the Guam guests have to stay overnight to wait for the Hawaii guests.
