Where to dive?

Hello everybody!

I'm a Norwegian diver who's going to Australia for diving in December and January. I wish to do a week of diving on one of the islands east of Australia.

I'm going alone and i do not wish a "touristy" place.Do anyone have any tips about where to go?

In advance, thank you very much for any reply.

Samoa is definitely not a 'touristy' place. There is some good diving there too. There's a great diving operation on the island of Savai'i, run by a couple who are very experienced and who have been there quite a while.

There are also places to dive on 'Upolu, at Sinalei Resort and at Aggie's resort. There is also Aqua Samoa. Best to do some google searches on those and see what you can find!

Best of luck - Samoa is very beautiful, I am sure you would enjoy it.

Kia Orana. Consider the Cook Islands also - Aitutaki in particular. Most beautiful lagoon in the Pacific. Excellent diving sites on reef, and in shallower lagoon.

Frequent daily flights Air NZ & Pacific Blue NZ-Rarotonga, and regular daily flights Air Rarotonga to Aitutaki.

Great range of accommodation & well-priced self-catering accomm. from $30NZ night. Island nights at resorts a "must see". Aitutaki is non-touristy, very attractive small island, safe, very friendly people -all speak English. Hire scooter $20 day, easy access to all scenic sites. Good infrastructure on island.

View Cook Islands Forum - Aitutaki for more information. Ka kite
