Diving and Snorkelling Adventures
From beginners to certified divers, everyone can experience the magic of Port Havannah.
One of the most wonderfully diverse marine sites out of Port Havannah with over 18 different dive sites. Reef and drop-off diving are the specialties, though there are coral gardens, swim-throughs, cave & thermal vents, bommies, drift dives and two wreck dives. Most of the dives are boat dives, though shore dives and night dives are available on request. The dive sites have a great range of soft and hard corals, reef fish and, on certain sites large pelagics may be seen. We also often see eagle rays and a range of marine mammals like dolphins and dugongs.
No words can describe how breathtaking the scenery of a waterfall is. You have not seen paradise until you experience this adventure.
An unforgettable experience. Take a scenic drive through a private organic farm followed by short walk through beautiful bush before jumping into a clear rock pool. Swim deep into the heart of a tropical rainforest to experience the tranquility and relaxation.

Itinerary & Schedule
With its deep, fish-rich waters, Vanuatu offers some of the most consistent game fishing for blue marlin on the planet. In addition, the range of sports fishing species available makes it a truly world class fishing travel destination.
Vanuatu’s shoreline drops off steeply due to its volcanic geography, providing incredibly deep waters close to shore – the perfect environment for calm water blue marlin game fishing! With numerous underwater canyons, seamounts, drop offs and FADs, the gamefishing action in Vanuatu is non-stop and exciting. However, there is more than just blue marlin on offer; black marlin, yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna and XOS sailfish are just some of the other game species that are regularly encountered throughout this archipelago.
Vanuatu offers more than just trolling for big game species. The inshore reefs and FADs all hold a wide variety of sportfish that are guaranteed to put your lighter gear to the test. Anglers have a chance of tackling speicies such as wahoo, mahi mahi, dogtooth and yellowfin tuna, red bass, coral trout and GTs just to name a few. For anglers who wish to mix their game fishing with some pelagic action there are both resort based adventures and extended live on board expeditions.
