Great diving at an amazing site. The team here were happy to accomodate what I wanted to see, while advising what was appropriate for a diver of my moderate experience and my first time in Vanuatu. Loved every minute.

Very friendly guides. Free pick-up from our resort (Deco Stop Lodge). Before all dives we got a detailed briefing. They guided us to different decks, cargo tanks and the “Lady“. Through very narrow tunnels we found a lot of stuff in the wreck. Perfect dives!

If you choose to dive with Allan Power Dive, you will not be disappointed. The Dive Guides are very experienced and knowledgeable. Neither my husband or myself are very experienced divers so probably required a bit more patience than younger divers. Not once were we...More

How much does a day out on the boat cost for beginner divers with their 18m open water lisence?

hi there ... they don't do boat dives ... the wreck is an easy beach entry ... I can't remember the cost but it was quite reasonable
