Diving Vanuatu

During our short stay in Vanuatu we chose to go scuba diving on four of the eight days we were there. Our non-diving perspective is here. It was an excellent decision. After Karen had researched Trip Advisor for information on the dive companies available we went with Big Blue Vanuatu.

Big Blue's Shop Front
Located right on the waterfront the dive shop had everything we needed. Mike and the rest of the crew were very patient and fun to dive with. As well, there was a great place to grab lunch right next door after you had finished your morning dives.
Dive Master Setting Up Gear
We rent our gear whenever we dive so having quality equipment is rather important to us. The gear at Big Blue was well maintained and we had no problems at all.
Ready to Dive
Karen about to enter the water for a dive on the wreck, Star of Russia.

We did eight different dive sites in the area of Port Vila. A couple of wrecks, Star of Russia and Semle. As well as plenty of fish and coral around Ifira Island and the west side of Mele Bay. The water temp was around 25C which made the shorty wetsuits more than enough to keep us at a comfortable temperature.

I did up a video to highlight some of the things we saw while under the water, Enjoy.

Welcome to our travel blog. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to say, "I'm out of here?" Well we did, and in 2013 we made it a reality. We sold or gave away all of our possessions other than what fit in our luggage and we set off on an endless adventure. Part of our goal is to share our experiences with others and hopefully provide some information, motivation, or just a moments escape. The general idea was to look for a place that would be ideal to settle down in. However in the meantime it is about experiencing life in different countries amongst different cultures and learning how to understand and appreciate each other. A large part of our time is spent housesitting which provides an excellent opportunity to experience more of the "normal" neighbourhoods as opposed to the tourist locales. Though we make sure to enjoy those as well. So through plenty of photographs and a running commentary come and share with us our life on the road.
