You are one very lucky person if you get to come to Tufi. 6 of us divers from California and Alaska, who have dove all over the world for years.....decades.....spent 10 days here at the end of February. Diving was fantastic. The local dive guides are superb and professional. Resort is in a really scenic and unique location. It's old...

Our travel agent suggested we look at Tufi in Papua New Guinea for our group annual trip It certainly meets our criteria, warm water, good visibility, abundant marine life and enough World War Two wreckage to meet our needs for rust and break up the reef diving. Also it is only half a day’s flying from Brisbane and is in...

If you like scuba diving this place is great. Amazing reefs, no crowds, great divemasters. I noticed one review mentioned the house reef has some rubbish and the walk to the dive shop is a bit of a trek. Firstly, its PNG. If you are after 5 star western luxury go somewhere else. The house reef is a bit average...

I stayed at Tufi resort for 10 days over Christmas and New Year whilst diving the coral reefs in the area. The Diving: Firstly, the diving is amazing, the reefs are very healthy with an abundance of marine life and with 2-3 dives a day, I don't think I came back disappointed from 1 dive, and some were truly spectacular!...

I had a very nice stay for a few days in December. Some snorkeling which was amazing, some kayaking/canoeing, a boat trip down the coastline and some walking through the local area. As with all other reviews, I would say the staff is all really helpful. The food is fresh and plentiful. I showed up with no plans and had...

I booked, and prepaid, a 5 night stay at Tufi. From their web site and the reviews I anticipated a 4 to 4.5 star resort, and was surprised and disappointed to be taken to a tired "motel room" type accommodation that perhaps would warrant 2.5 stars at best. It was reasonably clean, but there were markings and stains on the...

Tufi Resort was excellent. The manager picked us up from the dirt airport and drove us the short ride to the resort. The staff were all excellent. The dive staff was very accommodating and took us to some of the best dive sites I have been to. The boat was easy to get out of and back on to. The...

We have just completed a 4 day fishing trip with 8 friends. Tufi is a beautiful and remote part of PNG ( approx 45 min flight from Port Moresby). Tufi airport is 400m (dirt runway) from the resort.

We arrived at Tufi Resort after diving from a Live-A-Board on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) and the diving in Tufi was significantly better. I have been diving all over the world and have never seen so many fish on the reefs. The reefs are healthy (unlike the GBR) and the boat diving is outstanding. Don't try the shore diving...
