Water Sports

Discover Vanuatu's underwater world. The good visibility and warm temperature of Vanuatu’s waters ensure brilliant conditions for scuba - diving, which can be practised all year round. Most dive operators are situated in Port - Vila, on the island of Efaté, and on Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu’s biggest island. Several World War II shipwrecks, generally in fairly deep waters, lie scattered around the islands, 1 of the most famous being the SS President Coolidge. The Million Dollar Point, where military equipment was dumped at the end of the war, can also be explored by divers. The seabed around the offshore islands of North Efaté is well known for its deep canyons. For further information on diving, please contact:
