What a wonderful way for me to get back into diving after a very lengthy break and for my partner to gain his PADI qualification.

Aquamarine Dive Centre provided us with a superb service - diving the first day at spectacular Million Dollar Point, and the second day at the SS Coolidge. The dive (and snorkelling) experience was amazing (goes without saying) but what made it really special was the extra care and help given by the Dive Centre's manager Rehan and experienced instructors.

My husband went diving on our recent trip to Vanuatu.. He booked online as the Cruise Ship we were travelling with were fully booked. I was a little dubious at first but It was a fantastic experience for him. Thank you for the experience. It was cheaper than booking on the Cruise and the Aquamarine bus picked him up directly...

The customer service was excellent from the start to the end. Rehan, our point of contact, assisted us promptly with brilliant recommendations. We took his advice and went for the five day dive package. We were coupled with people who were diving the Coolidge. Guides were the best. I have not seen guides that experience and good in the water... More

Aquamarine is located centrally in Luganville, which was convenient as I stayed at The Espiritu. I booked a dive to Million Dollar Point for the 20th Feb and Rehon thoroughly explained the procedure to me as I had never dived before. Unfortunately I had to cancel last minute but Rehon was extremely understanding and I will not hesitate to book... More

I had a wonderful time diving Coolidge and Million dollars point with Aquamarine team. Diving Coolidge, especially "The Lady" and deeper (40m+), requires careful planning, because it is a decompression dive, which is not trivial for the recreational divers. The dives (2 days, 4 dives) were professionally planed and guided. The dive briefs were comprehensive and easy to follow. The... More

During the xmas peak Aquamarine were good enough to squeeze us in for a dive on the Coolidge. They picked us up and took us to the dive site for two dives with a morning tea of fruit etc in between. They were great organising everything by email - thanks!

Earlier in the year I decided to dive the Coolidge and went with Aquamarine. They were prompt and courteous in providing information. They also organised accommodation and transport from the airport as well for me, so I was conveniently located at the Espiritu hotel in the centre of Luganville (Aquamarine HQ is located here). Once I got to the hotel... More

We dived with Aquamarine in early December - SS Coolidge and Million Dollar Point in a morning. My husband is a very experienced (Rescue) diver - 3 years in PNG will do that! But me? Not so much - perhaps 50 dives, the last more than 10 years ago. Nonetheless, we had a terrific time with Aquamarine. The dives themselves... More
