We were on holiday in Vanuatu and we're contemplating trying snooba, however instead our resort recommended trying an introduction dive instead and made a booking for us with nautilus. I was nervous about scuba, but did not regret trying it, we loved it. The instructor (Kimberley) did a great job of explaining everything and making me feel comfortable before and... More

I did the intro dive as part of a shore tour for a cruise we went on. I had a blast, the guys at nautilus were friendly and easy going. The instructor was Australian which made it easier for me and my wife(australians) as sometimes the language barrier can be difficult. We had plenty of instructions given to us on... More

Totally enjoyed my first dive in 30 yrs. Having dived a lot in my mid twenties as a PADI certified diver, I was a little nervous! But the nautilus staff were friendly and professional and their safe practices and skills refresher had me quickly excited instead of nervous. Lack of weight belt was quickly rectified. I still don't have the... More

As promised your dive has been registered on the PADI website, so what this means is that you can go to any PADI dive shop and they will be able to look you up on the PADI system. More

Recently visited Port Vila on a cruise. Did the intro to scuba day trip and it was fantastic. Why I waited 40 years is beyond me. Great team, professional, safe and great fun. My wife was stressing before hand but they were patient and went that extra mile to make her feel ok, thoroughly recommend Nautilus Scuba

Learning to Scuba Dive has been a desire for many years, so with a trip this year to Vanuatu, I wanted to do a course in the tropics. A computer search found "Nautilus" in Port Vila and from that, I discovered an on-line theory course through P.A.D.I. for the first level of "Open Water Certificate". When that was completed, I...

I had an amazing time learning to dive with the Nautilus Scuba team. Everyone was friendly, helpful and safety was paramount. As a nervous ocean-goer, the one on one training throughout my entire Open Water course was amazing and really helped me get comfortable in the water. I thought I was going to be afraid when diving, but quickly got... More

With 12 days in Vanuatu and not being so keen on purely tourist activities I was relieved to get my teeth into my PADI open water course. With my two teenage sons we ended up doing both open water and open water advanced - 9 fabulous dives over 6 days. Doing homework and reading late into the warm evenings with... More

My daughter and I dived with Nautilus on a busy Saturday morning in early July. Given it was Australian School Holidays and their were various ships in Port Vila, I was concerned that every operator would be stretched beyond their capacity. Nautilus provided us with a great experience. Even with quite a few people on the boat, there was room... More
