Scuba Diving

Out Front

Papageno Resort is so lucky in the dive world in that there are over a dozen world-class dive sites within 20-minute boat ride from our shores. We invite you to take advantage of this location feat and jump in the water for a few tanks with our local dive masters. Our dive masters were born and raised in the villages surrounding these dive sites and know them extremely well. The home reef for Papageno Resort which is also a Marine Protected Area is called Rooper Reef. It hosts dive spots like Chambers, Crossroads, Group Tube and the one and only wreck dive on Kadavu Island: The Pacific Voyager. Sunk by some of our staff in 1994, a 63-meter long tanker, The Pacific Voyager, lays over 30 meters below the ocean’s surface. All over our local dives sites are host to a wide variety of fish, invertebrates, and nudibranchs.

Depths at our local dive sites range from 10 meters (30 feet) to 35 meters (115 feet). Our dive masters will choose the dive sites best suited for the conditions of the day. If you have a particular request of a spot you’d like to dive while you’re staying with us, please let us know ahead of time or upon arrival so that we may map out the best day and time to take you for the best experience possible. Don’t worry if you didn’t bring your dive gear, we have dive equipment available for rent for the length of your stay.

The Great

Astrolabe Reef 

The third largest barrier reef in the world, The Great Astrolabe Reef, is only about an hour scenic boat ride East of Papageno Resort. It is one of the largest in the world but also one of the least tracked making it an incredible and mysterious experience exploring the underwater caves and crevices of dive spots in the Alacrity Rocks like Broken Stone, and Split Rock. Our Dive Masters know these spots like the back of their own hand and will take you on some of the most awe-inspiring dives of your life.

The day on the Astrolabe normally consists of an early departure from Papageno Resort before or after breakfast (depending on tides). One dive will be upon first arrival, then a break for picnic lunch on a remote beach on one of the smaller islets in the Kadavu Archipelago, and finishing with one more dive before heading home to Papageno. Fishing is included in this trip with intentions of catching some sashimi for lunch! Let us know if you would like to add Spearfishing, Freediving, or a Giant Manta Ray Encounter to your trip when booking to make it your customized, ultimate Astrolabe Reef Experience.
