Scuba Diving, snorkelling and fishing
As on most Pacific islands, water activities are made all the more fun by the temperature of the water! Ranging from 23-28 Celsius (74-83F) depending on the season, diving/snorkelling and swimming in Vava’u is warm and comfortable. The waters are crystal clear with visibility averaging 30 metres plus.
While we are not a dive shop, we do offer diving as a benefit for members while on board the yacht. We recommend that SCUBA divers bring their own gear for the best fit, but we do offer regulators, bcd’s, mask & snorkels and fins for your use. Please let management know your needs at check in. There are no dive shops available to rent or buy gear from locally. Divers must bring their certification cards and sign a waiver. Divers over the age of 60 years must present a doctor’s note clearing them to dive. All non-members, including RCI, Rentals and Referrals will be charged a fee of USD $100 in cash per SCUBA dive.
We love offering TW branded water bottles, towels and beach bags, etc. for your use on charter, but we are unable to easily replace them here, so please do not bring them home with you. Your crew will collect these from you before you disembark.Guests who wish to come to Vavau early to dive and/or do refresher dives prior to their week around Mandala Resorts please contact Explore Vava’u at firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and booking options.
All queries about diving and other tours should be directed to Explore Vava’u at email@example.com
