An idyllic paradise of warm, stunning blue waters surrounding shallow fringing reefs and island peaks, Vava’u offers some spectacular and diverse diving, with average visibility of 30 metres.

Dramatic coastal caves lie beneath the water, harbouring sharks, lobster and schooling fish, and forming intriguing dive sites. One such site is ‘Mariner’s Cave’, the entrance of which is about three metres deep and tunnels six metres into a submerged ledge of coral. There are untouched hard corals, colourful soft coral gardens and an abundance of gorgonian fans.

Add this to unique caves and archways, the opportunity to encounter migrating humpback whales and the chance to explore the 122 metre long wreck of the ‘Clan McWilliam’ you can look forward to the holiday of a lifetime!
