Port Vila, located on the main island of Efate, is a lovely waterfront town with a great variety of dive sites, many of which are only minutes away.
The sites offer a multitude of marine life, with running currents bringing in large pelagic species.. Port Vila harbour also offers an impressive range of wreck diving (planes and ships), the highlights being the wreck of the three-masted square rigger, the ‘Star of Russia’, and, sitting in 36 metres of water, the ex-Qantas seaplane the ‘Tasman’.
For spectacular coral reefs and clear water drop-offs, full day sailing cruises are offered to the offshore islands of North Efate. These cruises are designed to cater to both dive groups and those looking to sail, snorkel and admire the coastal scenery. Diving highlights include the extensive cavern and tunnel system of Tukutuku, where dugong, grouper and sharks are often seen and the ancient volcanic plugs of Hat Island and Paul’s Reef, with their rich diversity of marine life and gin clear water. Perfect for underwater photographers.
