As a first time diver I was a little nervous, also being a bigger guy I didn't know if they would have the gear to fit me, the instructors soon put me at ease with their friendly attitudes and with their knowledge and kitted me out with everything I needed. The dive its self was amazing with constant supervision I... More

I was on the first cruise ship to return to Port Vila after the cyclone. We landed at Port Vila onboard the Pacific Dawn. The reception at the port was amazing. The smiles and friendliness was great and such a sight after what these folks had endured over the past month. The port was clean and there was very little... More

This was my first tour dive. Had a really friendly Australian blonde dive leader. The local boat driver was friendly too and in the end was pretty happy to chat (the vanuatu seem shy at first). I dived on the konanda which was amazing. Swimming through the hull and up through the rooms and bridge. Great dive for beginners and... More

A great experience for first time divers. The instructors put safety first & are always on hand & vigilant to ensure you are ok & are getting the most from the dive. We were lucky enough to meet an inquisitive Dugong on our reef dive which was a wonderful experience we won't soon forget! Well worth giving it a try... More

The team at Nautilus have done it again! Not only are they one of the most professional outfits in the South Pacific, their Dive Masters and boat crew ensured a fantastic experience. The site was spectacular, the water warm, the company friendly, and the operation safe. All the hallmarks of a company in this for the long haul. Dived with... More

Very well organized, excellent staff. From arriving, filling out the consent-forms, briefing, and gearing up, everything went like a breeze. The diveboat was excellent, and the staff was knowledgeable. I would come again. If it only was not on the other side of the globe.. :(
