Experience Port Vila’s spectacular underwater world on the Reef Explorer. Our custom built semi-submersible vessel is the only one of its kind in Vanuatu, providing an all-in-one unique experience of being in a submarine and glass bottom boat.
Reef Explorer will take you on a tour of Port Vila Harbour with views of the city from the water as we weave through the coral “bommies”. You can see beautiful coral outcrops and tropical fish from our viewing room in the keel of the boat. We moor off Iririki Island where you can snorkel and hand feed the fish. Keep your eyes open as sometimes we see turtles!
The water temperature ranges from 24 to 28 degrees and is very clear. You can see Parrotfish, Butterflyfish, Clownfish (find Nemo!), Moorish Idols, Triggerfish, Humbugs, Seahorse, Damsels, Starfish, and many more as you snorkel over the corals. Don’t want to get wet? No worries, our viewing room will offer you the same experience and opportunity to take some great photos!
Reef Explorer departs from the jetty at Café Du Village next to the Grand Hotel Monday to Saturday at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm. The tour lasts for 1 1/2 hours. All snorkelling gear is provided.
Suitable for all ages.
Reef Explorer is a past winner of the Vanuatu Tourism Awards.
