My wife will not normally get her face wet but was absolutely thrilled by this adventure. The guys on the pontoon were fantastic in their support and patience. One of those things that anyone can do regardless of their swimming ability. Beautiful fish within your reach.Our group were unanimous in their praise of this experience.

briliant water temperature and so many fish. We felt very safe and the water was clear with the blue skies. Very happy staff. Oceanwalking shoes provided onboard but BYO towel

If you are not a fan of snorkelling, but love to view the sealife, this is a must activity. We were visiting from a cruise and decided to do this oceanwalk. We got taken out to a platform in the sea by a small boat. The staff were great, full of energy. You wear a clear helmet and walk along... More

This Oceanwalk experience was one of the highlights of our time in Vanuatu. I've never had an experience quite like it and it was very well run from start to finish. We were picked up from the port and took a short boat ride to the location, a section of reef about three or four metres below the surface, depending... More

Oh wow! Where to begin. What an amazing venture this was. Blue water, heaps of tropical fish eagerly waiting to feed from your hands. Nemo even made a surprise visit. A clam was part of the act and shut down when touched. The professional diver was with us every step of the way ensuring our safety at all times. We... More

We were on the Carnival Spirit cruise ship & stopped in Vanuatu. Decided to do this tour as it was something different. I've just learned how to swim, so I was a bit scared to do this. My hubby is a diver & wants me to learn as well, so I thought I'd do this to see how I went... More

Wonderful experience! We often snorkel but this looks at the ocean from a different perspective. The tour guys gave us a full safety brief and description of the experience before we started so we understood what to expect. Even with the weight belt & helmet I still felt like I was going to float away so I held onto the... More

As part of Carnival Spirit shore excursion we selected Helmet Dive Ocean Walk at $99.00 each, starting at 12:00pm. Please note; IF you suffer from certain health conditions you will not be allowed to participate. Here I discovered for the first time I was claustrophobic underwater; supporting these 35kg helmets plus extra weights (for the ladies) around my waist became... More
