Our goal has been to open the world class snorkeling reefs of Tanna, Vanuatu to the diving world. On offer is an unspoiled, untouched and unbelievable aquatic experience. The Volcanic Island of Tanna has virtually nil fresh water runoff, therefore it offers unmatched visibility and dramatic marine landscapes, including caves, reef walls, amazing swim throughs and caverns, and a myriad of creatures and critters. Green Sea Turtles and our resident Dugong are big attractions. Macro lovers will love our ‘Little critters’ which abound at several of our sites. White Grass Ocean Resort & Spa has always been famous for some of the best snorkelling in Vanuatu and has now introduced great Scuba Diving sites. Volcano Island Divers is the first and only dive operation on Tanna, and joins Vanuatu’s already great SCUBA diving locations. With full PADI Dive Centre accreditation, Volcano Island Divers provides great customer service and a fun, enjoyable and memorable marine experience, while maintaining professionalism and a high standard of safety.

We are proud to announce Volcano Island Divers is the first PADI ECO Certified Dive resort in Melanesia. 

Volcano Island Divers, the first and only SCUBA diving operation on Tanna Island, has opened up the world class snorkelling reefs of Tanna to the diving world, offering unspoiled, untouched and unbelievable aquatic experiences’.
