Our dive boat trips run every morning and afternoon, we leave straight from the dive centre along the Seawall and embark on a short boat ride before mooring up at one of Port Vila’s unique dive spots. For those who prefer to explore by star light, we offer regular weekly night dives.

Our dive trip itinerary is to gear up and jump in for the first dive, marvel at the wonders of the underwater world, climb aboard for a surface interval with fruit and refreshments, then delve into the blue once again for a second dive. We have an incredible variety of shipwrecks, including the 1874 Star of Russia, and coral reefs flourishing from Pango Point to Mele Bay.
