What to expect
Diving at the White Grass Ocean Resort is provided by the PADI Scuba Dive Centre ‘Volcano Island Divers’. They offer everything from daily boat and shore recreational diving to Discover Scuba Diving, and PADI courses from Beginner to Master Scuba Diver. They can provide all the gear you need, or just weights and tanks if you have your own.
Most of the dive sites are accessible from White Grass Ocean Resort & Spa’s purpose built jetty – whether you are shore or boat diving, other sites are via shore dives from pebble beaches.
Even on the House Reef you can see amazing coral formations, dugongs, turtles, moray eels, reef sharks and blue spotted rays. There is lots of interesting topography, with swim throughs, tunnels and grottos to explore.
Sites further afield include Kamitua Reef, a sheer wall drop off and prolific Pelagic Fish and marine life, from giant Yellowfin Tuna, Barracuda and Grey Reef Sharks, to Fan corals, Moray eels and Nudibranchs; and the wreck of the MV Jean Percy – a small cargo boat sitting upright in 14m of clear blue water.
We think …
White Grass Ocean Resort & Spa is the perfect place to experience the real Vanuatu, diving pristine coral reefs, and relaxing on the sapphire blue coastline with stunning views and sensational sunsets.
