Diving & Accommodation Packages, Port Vila, Vanuatu

Diving & Accommodation Packages, Port Vila, Vanuatu.

Hi to everyone in the diving fraternity.

Unless you were under a rock for the last month you would have heard the Vanuatu was hit with one of the biggest cyclones in the southern hemisphere ever. Yep sure was a good one!!

The cyclone occurred on Friday the 13 of March 2015. Well I’m here to tell you we were back in action in less than 7 days.

Due to the wind direction our reefs and wrecks got off unaffected from any damage. With a dramatic drop in water temperature the coral is actually thriving.

We are now well into 2016 and we are still finding tourism a little slow, the Australian economy has slowed considerably and we have had 2 airlines stop flying in due to low volumes of tourists. Air Vanuatu and lots of other small carriers are still busy bringing us tourist so if you were looking for a holiday to a great destination that is not overly busy now is the time to come to Port Vila, Vanuatu.

We had a dive group in from ProDive Sydney less than 3 week after the cyclone that stayed in our accommodation and did around 80 dives and here is what they had to say: Diving With Nautilus After Cyclone Pam

Airfares are very affordable currently and we have a great package available here however you must take advantage of this offer before the end of August 2016.
