Its been a few years since I dived,but I've snorkled lots in the Sth Pac,so this isnt anything great coral-wise,but its a good intro to diving and the guys are very good with first timers/scared and theyre with you all the way,checking on you.Its only a few mtrs deep and close to shore and only 10 mins boat ride to the area.Lasts 20 mins and youre given reef shoes and theres a fixed rope in a loop on the sea bed to hang onto.Water was warm but quite cloudy.Helmet weighs 25kg and bruised my shoulders(Im only 52kg and short,and old).But no problem seeing or breathing and you can even equalise your ears the usual way due to the air pressure.But the best thing for me was the fish feeding.I loved it.Lots of little black fish just came crowding round my face and I could even touch and stroke them.They do bite if they miss your fingers but its not painful.

As a fan of 20,000 leagues under the sea, I had to experience this underwater walk for myself! Well... I was not disappointed and, thoroughly enjoy it! The water was a little cloudy (due to recent weather) but this added to the mystique! YOU MUST TRY IT!

So enjoyed this experience. The staff are great. Very understanding of being anxious about going under the water. Always making sure you’re ok & that you are enjoying the dive. Seeing the fish in their own environment was incredible. Totally recommend Ocean walkers to others. Great opportunity for an unique experience with these friendly guys

This is an original experience you won’t get in too many places. We booked this off Holland America Maasdam during our stop in Vanuatu. The professional crew picks you up by boat right from the dock. You arrive at a lovely coral and tropical fish studded cove where they prep you for the dive walk. They fit you with a transparent air supplied helmet and guide you through a coral garden as you walk on the sea floor. My wife and I felt absolutely safe under the watchful eye of several professional scuba divers floating all around us. It was a wonderful experience which was a highlight of our cruise.

I booked an oceanwalker experience for myself in August. What can I say, it was just amazing and the dive team were exceptional.  Safety was the number one priority on the boat and under the water.  They made sure that I had a wonderful experience. Plenty of fish and you even get to feed them. A bonus was a trip around Iririki Island on the way back to the wharf.  Once again a big thank you for the experience.
