thank you to the team at Big Blue, I had completed several DSD prior and they were excellent and I had a great dive while my husband snorkelled. Their equipment was in excellent condition and the water was clear and warm. I booked via BLUE VANUATU it was very easy and an excellent price.

We had 2 terrific dives with Big Blue, and would have had more if we didn’t leave to escape the cyclone. They make sure your equipment is all set up, and they know the reefs and wrecks well. We wanted to do only reefs, and they accommodated us. The corals are gorgeous below 45 feet, much better than what we... More

The gear is in a very good condition and the guys who take you diving are just amazing - very friendly, experienced and they take great care of their reefs. If... More

A well run operation - we were a family of 17 who went snorkelling for a morning. The organisation was really good - we had a boat to ourselves. Many of our family are experienced divers and snorkelling however it was awesome to have someone snorkelling with you if you wanted to show you different things. We had about an... More

My partner and I had a lovely time diving with Big Blue. Our diving instructor Jerry was excellent. He was friendly, accomodating and also helped us with our breathing (as we are new to diving) which meant we were able to spend more time on our second dive. They are are a well run group and we felt safe in... More

My husband and I stayed at Paradise Cove Resort over Easter 2017 and did 3 days' diving with Big Blue. We were absolutely blown away!! The diving itself is amazing - the variety and quantity of hard corals are world class - but the flawless operations of Big Blue really made our vacation one to be repeated. Highlights: - Gear...

Our recent cruise stopped in Port Vila and we took advantage of that opportunity to book a dive with Big Blue. They are a very low-key but professional operation and provided excellent service. Sam was our dive master and he certainly knew his stuff! We did a beautiful reef dive at the Twin Bommies and then toured the wreck of... More

Recommend these guys, they are the best!!!! Just completed 15 dives between Port Villa and Espiritu Santo, including Million Dollar Point and the Coolidge. 5 of these dives were with Big Blue, found these guys the best.

I got my Open Water Certificate with Big Blue last week and it was a fantastic experience! I have never dived before so I wasn't sure if I was going to freak out at the beginning but thanks to this great team and especially to my patient and very professional instructor, Fabrice, it was a relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable experience....
