Diving

Vanuatu and the outer islands in particular offer incredible diving and the Santo region is a favourite for divers the world over. Widely varied and catering to all levels of skill and interest, the dive sites around Santo and Bokissa have it all.

During WWII, Espiritu Santo was a staging area for US forces in the South Pacific. As a result, there is not only a lot of military surplus on the island but also below on the seabed.

Struck by 'friendly' mines the SS President Coolidge now rests between 20 and 60m offering the worlds largest accessible wreck dive to anyone from novices to experts.

When the US armed forces left the region after the conflict, vast amounts of military surplus was literally driven into the ocean, now constituting the must see Million Dollar Point dive.

Many more world-class dive sites dot the local underwater landscape including the USS Tucker and Henry Bounaud.
