Firstly Peter & Leanne I hope all ok after TC Harold. We visited Port Vila with a good friend of ours who organised 16 dives over 4 days, which was not an issue for the company to accomodate. What fun we had 2 dives in the morning & 2 more in the afternoon. The guide & boat skipper made it a great trip with lots of fun & laughter. Its wonderful the look after our friend who is an incomplete wheelchair bound quad. He has been diving with this company for years & I know appreciate why as they are an amazing operation. We all took our own gear which was taken care of beautifully. We hope to visit again in the future when the travel bans from Covid 19 are lifted. Anyone looking for an amazing dive operator don't go past this company. Cheers & keep up the good work & forever being safety conscious.

I did my first scuba dive at Nautilus and absolutely loved it! I felt extremely well taken care of and it was a super relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to someone who wants to give scuba diving a try!

Fantastic. Excellent instructor and great diving. Don't book thru a cruise ship excursion like I did, book directly from the website or call. 1/2 price.

I booked a double boat dive directly as we got two dives for the price that the cruise ship was advertising. We did have to get a water taxi from the wharf to the dive shop which was only $5 each way. Leanne gave us clear instructions but unfortunately the water taxi took us to another dive shop so be clear with your instructions to the water taxi. The dive master was fun and informative and the crew looked after us and did all the preparation for the dive. The wreck was a good size with interesting features and enabled us to swim through to see the lion fish inside. The dive master pointed out things we may have missed ourself. The twin bommies was also good. The crew provide food and water and look after you and follow the safety rules and the gear is in good condition. We did already have our scuba license.

I hadn't seen this type of diving that blows your mind about the world under the sea since the Solomons years ago. Mele Reef and the Star of Russia were fantastic dives. If you can get to the Temple at the Brommies with the Moray Eels and the Cuttlefish it is unforgettable and out of this world. The boat crew and guides were very friendly and helpful. The American and Italian dive guides I was paired up with were passionate about diving and took good care of me.
