After a two hour cruise you will be arrive at Kuata which is unmistakable with it`s white beaches, huge volcanic mountains and the famous Phantom Rock caves. You will be welcomed on the beach by singing and grinning locals who will guide you to the day centre for a brief on the day’s action.
You will be on the island for about five hours and will have time to swim in the pools, snorkel, kayak, go for a bush walk or many other activities. Diving and snorkelling with sharks are also optional extras. A freshly cooked buffet lunch will take up some of your time and can be washed down with a beer or cocktail from the bar.

This day trip includes all of the above plus the choice to either snorkel or for those who have it on their bucket list – do an introductory dive either from the shore OR with the reef sharks. After completing a medical form and a safety briefing our staff will put on your equipment in waist deep water off the beach. Here they will get you comfortable with the breathing and show you a couple of handy tricks to use during the dive.
There is no hurry for this process and you can take as long as you need to get comfortable. Your instructor will then take you slowly out to our beautiful reef. They will start very shallow holding your hand and will progress the dive from there. If you are a bit nervous they will hold your hand for the entire dive.
If you are a bit more comfortable the instructor will give you more freedom while staying nice and close. The general depth of an introductory dive will range between one and 6 mteres. Our staff are famously patient and will show you a magnificent coral reef full of life.
*Please Note that all introductory dives are subject to participants filling out a medical form. There are some medical conditions that are not compatible with diving. There should be a twelve hour gap between doing this dive and boarding a commercial aircraft.
