Fun and young guides who know exactly where to go. I booked a dive onboard the cruise ship, then decided to do a 2nd dive through the dive shop and ended up paying extra compared to buying 2 dives directly through the dive shop. I recommend doing both through 1 source for a beyger deal

I only had enough time in Port Vila to do one pair of dives but this dive shop did a great job with everything. I would definitely go with them again in the future.

I'm a long time certified diver and took my 16yo son diving for the first time. The instructor was so patient with him and my son absolutely loved it. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience for us both. PS we found Nemo and he kissed me! Or was it a little bite? Who cares, it was awesome!

Safety is first and after covering safety there was nothing less than good time and fun with a great team. Very friendly team and all the equipments have been maintained and service correctly. In my next visit to Vanuatu I am definitely going for another dive with them

We dived with Nautilus as a family of five (3 sons aged 23,21 and 18) and they were very professional and helpful so we did a second dive the same day with them. Great experience and really good close dives when you only have a few hours off a cruise ship. Would certainly recommend them and hope to be back... More

Paid a premium price for the dive as part of a cruise. The dive only took 20min as an inexperienced diver ran short on air although the option to continue the dive with my budy. The dive master insisted we surface! I'm an experienced diver with more than a 1000 dives over 20 years so was disappointed.

Superb! Simply Superb! Well set up and well run, definitely on the return to do list for me. From the equipment to the fit and even the coffee and cake on the return trip the whole dive went like clockwork with briefing that covered what to expect, time involved and hidden treats to watch out for. The dive master (Dhruv)... More

I would highly recommend Nautilis diving. Even their between diving snacks are awesome. Dive masters take really good care of you. And the owners Pete and Leanne were incredible.
