Want the perfect holiday adventure, looking to get up close with colourful marine life, then climb aboard The Reef Explorer, Vanuatu’s only custom built semi submersible vessel. Vanuatu weather makes almost every day absolutely perfect to explore the reef!
On the Reef Explorer you will cruise through Port Vila out to Iririki Island where once moored you can snorkel and view the amazing sea life, hand feed the fish and best of all, no need to bring anything as all snorkeling gear and fish food are supplied.
The keel of the boat has an under the water viewing room so if you don’t want to snorkel you still get to see all of the wonders Vanuatu’s water has to offer.
The New Zealand custom built vessel isn’t just a glass bottom boat, it’s so much more. You can walk down to a viewing room that is below the water line showcasing turtles, butterfly fish, parrot fish, seahorses and even Nemo can be found amongst the vast varieties of coral.
The water is clear which ensures good viewing as you leisurely cruise along and with the Vanuatu weather warm all year round and the water temperature ranging from 24 to 28 degrees it has the makings for a perfect tropical holiday adventure.
