(rescheduled trip)

Join Nigel Marsh for an incredible dive trip to explore the rich reefs and fascinating wrecks of Port Vila, Vanuatu.

Over six days we will explore colourful reefs and shipwrecks off Port Vila. Several wrecks covered in corals and fish rest off Port Vila, including the Konada and Semle Federsen, but the most famous wreck we can explore is the classic iron hulled barque Star of Russia. Port Vila also has many reefs and pinnacles to explore, which offer the photographer a great range of wide-angle and macro subjects, and if we are lucky we might even encounter a dugong. We are also hoping to explore a few new reefs and muck sites that have recently been discovered by Big Blue Vanuatu.

Our accommodation is Chantilly's on the Bay, which has waterfront views, and is ideally located just 3km from the airport and a short five minute walk to the city centre. There are 20 beautifully appointed and self contained apartments in this hotel, each with its own private balcony, giving guests spectacular harbour views. The accommodation consists of 12 large studio apartments and 8 one bedroom apartments. Bistro at Chantilly’s offers local and international cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. Guests have the option of dining indoors, by the pool, or a table can even be organised on hotel’s own private beach. For casual drinks and snacks, the Banyan Beach Bar is located by the water and is open from 3pm every day.

Port Vila has an interesting mix of French, English and Melanesian culture, which is reflected in its shops and restaurants. When not diving you can explore the town or simply relax at the resort.
