Boat and especially crew were excellent! But also the clientele I dived with I liked. At some dive spots you have customers which I prefere not to dive with, too many plebs. Not so at Nautilus in Vila (except the cruise ship people, but this day you can skip diving). But also the dive spots were not too bad. The... More

Very friendly staff, great pricing, a personal touch (including advice on where to go for lunch!) and some of the greatest diving I've ever done. :)

This was my first dive and Nautilus made it very comfortable. Apart from an octopus, I didn't see much marine life that I wasn't seeing in ordinary snorkelling; this was all about getting used to scuba. One tip: when you arrive for your dive, make sure you are wearing swimming trunks. They didn't make it clear that regular clothes would... More

Well organised and professional crew. My thanks to Freddie and the other divers for a most enjoyable and scenic dive. I have been diving for over forty years and rate the team at Nautilus Scuba as amongst the best I have dived with.

My 14 yr old daughter & I had a great time on our introductory dive. Instructor was very patient and encouraging. My daughter hasn't stop raving about it. The equipment was top notch and the cake and cuppa afterwards topped off a great experience. Would certainly dive with Nautilus again.

A great introduction to the under water world, with the instructors taking time with each person to make them feel comfortable above water and under water.

This place was pretty professional and even served brownies. It's a pretty simple and accessible place if you're looking for a no-frills dive experience that allows you to see some nice coral reefs. The boat is a dedicated dive boat and is very well-designed and comfortable. They also help you by taking all of your gear for you, which is... More
