Nautilus Watersports is the longest dive operation here in Port Vila with over 35 years experience, highly experienced dive staff, both local (Ni-Vanuatu) and expats. We have a purposely build dive boat, twin hull cat which is two levels high, a sundeck up top which is great for checking out the view when traveling to and from the dive sites and also great for doing bombs of during your surface interval, there is also plenty of shade down below and a toilet, for our training sessions we have a purposely build training pool which is located here at Nautilus.
Divers come from all over the world for Vanuatu’s superb visibility, warm water and world-class dive sites. The underwater world offers Caverns, grottoes and overhangs, beautiful drift and reef dives and some spectacular wreck dives such as the Star of Russia which is 80+ mtrs in length and 13mtrs in breadth, this grand lady was built in the 1850’s by Harlan & Wolff of Belfast (also famous for the construction of the Titanic) or check out the Semle Federson which is a island trader that was purposely sunk after being damage in a cyclone in 1987. If you are not into wrecks then come and check out our beautiful reef dives such as Twin Bommies and the Cathedral. On each dive that you go on you will come across may different creatures & corals, be surrounded by sea fans, soft corals, plate corals, sponges, many varieties of Nudibranchs and thousands of curious fish, moray eels and the list goes on, on the odd occasion we will even get a visit from one of our resident Dugongs and more often than not you will see turtles on our night dive at the Twin Bommies.
