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

Hello, Our 10yr old & 13yr old son's completed their Junior Open Water Scuba Diving Course with Nautilus Watersports in Vanuatu in mid July 2014.

The staff were all very friendly... More

My son and husband did some dives with nautilus, and loved it. There was a good selection of dive sites depending whether you wanted to do wreck or reef dives, with excellent dive boat and friendly, helpful staff . Thought it was very good value for money.

Nautilus is a great diving company. At all times the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were diving with 2 young boys who had recently qualified and we could not have felt safer. The skippers were great fun as were the instructors. The dive sites were some of the best we have ever dived, and we have dived all... More

Nautilus were great with me and made sure I had a great introduction to scuba. Kim was my instructor and had endless patience. I could not fault them and they made sure I progressed at my pace, without that I would probably have abandoned the course. The gear was good, the boat was good and the dives sites interesting. I...

We dived with this team on 3 June and were very impressed with their whole set up. Steffens were very astute and aware of the needs of each member of the group. Equipment was good quality. Dive plans were well explained and leaders responded to our abilities. Kudos to Jordan and Kimberley for their professionalism and responsiveness, which gave us... More
