Dive training

<br />

LAGOON SAFARIS offers all levels of training from PADI Scuba Diver right through to PADI Assistant Instructor, including Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water Diver, Adventure Diver, Rescue Diver and Divemaster. We also offer a large selection of PADI specialities.



We organize half-day two tank dive trips to the reefs most days of the week. Each dive lasts approximately 45 minutes with a surface interval of at least 1 hour during which you can enjoy tea and biscuits while reliving the highlights of the dives with your fellow divers. Most of our dives are drift dives with priority on the safety and comfort of our guests. We also organize outings with one dive, usually to one of the nearby dive sites where it is usual to see turtles and small sharks and impressive numbers and varieties of fish.


Night dives

If you have never tried diving at night, you will be amazed by the variety of life you can discover on a night dive. A well known dive site becomes a new experience with colorful parrot fish sleeping gently in their cocoons, turtles and all kinds of shells and other nocturnal creatures which are rarely seen in the daytime. Lifou is one of few places where it is not unusual to see a nautilus in its’ natural environment.
