Dive with the Friendly Divers!

Centrally located on the seawall in Port Vila, Vanuatu's capital city, Big Blue is Vanuatu's only PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Dive Resort, offering professional, friendly service to both divers and snorkelers. We take divers of all levels out to our reefs and wrecks. If you don't dive yet, we can teach you. If you want to improve or expand your diving horizons we have a course that will suit you. And if you want to go all the way, and become an instructor, we are one of only a handfull of centres in the South Pacific which run Instructor Development Courses. Alternatively you might just want to relax and dive or snorkle our beautiful tropical reefs as part of your Pacific paradise holiday. We offer diving and snorkling trips every day. Come and join us and let our local guides show you how fabulous our reefs are.

We are a Project Aware 100% Aware Partner dive centre which means a contribution is made to ocean conservation when a student is certified. Find out more here
