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

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.. :(

The Konanda wreck dive was great and we were lucky enough to have hung out with a mother dugong and her pup towards the end of the dive. Reed, our guide was lovely and great company! Would highly recommend for any one visiting Vanuatu to book at dive!

This was my first ever experience scuba diving. The Nautilus staff were awesome. My instructor was experienced and very reassuring. I fully enjoyed doing my open water dive certificate with them. The pool sessions were a great lead up to the open water dives. I always felt safe and would recommend this dive centre to anyone.
