My mate and I were in Vila for a month so decided it was a great time to learn to dive. Pretty soon we felt like an adopted part of the Nautilus family. Leanne made everything seem like it was not a trouble in the world while Kim got us going in the water. Kim was a fantastic instructor! Mature... More

I have tried to get my diving organised with Big Blue, another dive business in Port Vila. They come across a bit flaky and unorganised. It's not that we have a month time in Vanuatu, we are only going for a week and I need my diving sorted upfront. I contact Leanne from Nautilus. She is precise to the dot,... More

Had a great experience with a very professional and fun to be with dive company. We arrived from the cruise ship on time, 5 of us advanced divers, and were taken out to the wreck in their dive boat with 2 guides and a driver. Professional all the way. They couldn't do enough to make it the highlight of our... More

We have just returned from two weeks in Port Vila, staying at and diving with Nautilus. We were worried that there would be limited facilities due to cyclone Pam, but found everything pumping!! We were really comfortable in the accommodation above the dive shop with magnificent views of the water and the dive crew couldn't have been more helpful. They... More

I did two dives with the Nautilus team in Dec 2015 and it was such a great experience! The team was super friendly and accomodating and myself and a PADI open water student had the whole boat to ourselves. Freddie was my guide and he was a fish in the water and very knowledeagle re corals and fish. We saw... More
