Our first dive in Port Vila. Down to about 15 metres.

The boat ( "Cowrie" ) is the best set up boat we have been on. It was an absolute dream getting into and out of the water! And pikelets at the end of the dive, great.

However the dive itself was disappointing. Terrible visibility. Though it was a very easy dive.

Illana's comments:

A site that has lots of soft corals and fish. Visibility is shit, 5 to 7 metres. Not too dissimilar to some of our Sponge garden trips in Sydney, so we are a bit disappointed. Saw an amazing fish though. Bright blue with a big horseshoe shaped tail. Col thinks it could be a unicorn fish very pretty. A school of pretty small electric blue fish swims around below us.

Down to 22 metres.

The boat ( "Scuba Blue" ) is not set up as well as the " Cowrie ". But it is still a good boat and it is faster!

After dropping to 22 metres we made our up to 16 metres, where we spent 15 minutes. Then up to 6 metres where we spent the last 35 minutes.

This was simply the most pleasant dive!! Lots of colourful stuff to see. Visibility good. Simply a very pleasant relaxing dive!

Illana's comments:

Last dive for the trip is on Mele Reef. Vis is around 30 metres. This is more like it!! Abundant fish life and lots of pretty coral. Plates of it cover the reef and the fish dart in and out of it. More of those blue fish with horseshoe tails. A school of greenish silver fish swims by it looks like a tree shedding its leaves in the sunlight the silvery green leaves dancing on their way to the bottom of the sea.


Nautilus Scuba

We dived with Nautilus Scuba. And will do when we go back again.

Great to dive with.
