Dive in Samoa
There is no better place for you to dive in the waters of Samoa!
On this site you will find a number of companies offering:dive tours, dive trainingen and dive holidays.
Samoa offers spectacular diving, and the better sightseeing is to be found underwater. Our marine life is pristine and diverse. We expect you to see either or any one of the following marine residents: rays, turtles, dolphins, and white & black tips with the addition of colourful reef fish. Our marine environment offers a diverse variety of marine life that includes both pelagic and different species of reef fish as well as reefs that are abundant with hard and soft coral.

Dive Sites are scattered all around the islands from Aleipata to Manono and Savaii and while we have listed some of them below, we are still discovering great new dive sites. Our pristine and rich marine environment includes awesome walls to drop offs, ship wrecks, coral gardens, pinnacles and craters with the abundance of reef and pelagic fish.

MILE REEF
Located five miles from Apia Harbour, this outer reef offers a beautiful dive with well established hard corals and a multitude of fish life. Five Mile Reef rises up from 200-300 metres of water to 14 metres at its shallowest point, offering dives for beginners to advanced divers. It offers a warm environment and great visibility all year round (between 30-50 metres) and is often visited by spinner dolphins, barracuda, white and black tips, and many varieties of visiting pelagic fish. One of our popular sites on the reef is Valerie's Corner. In 1991 during Cyclone Valerie, large boulders were deposited on the reef from the surrounding sea floor, creating a wonderful habitat for giant clams, Christmas tree tube worms and moray eels. Also expect a lot of reef fish in this site as you explore the valleys and chasms, and drop-offs along its length.

TREASURE GARDEN
From the outer reef wall a turn-off reveals a gently rising garden of well established corals that is a favourite spot around Apia for hawksbill turtles. This is a great opportunity to spot these wonderful creatures in our dive and also the chance to meet our resident giant clam, 'JAWS'.

THE WRECK
In 1889 ships from Great Britain, Germany, New Zealand and the United States of America were destroyed during the hurricanes during that time. Not one ship managed to get away. Most of The Wreck has been buried underneath the seabed with a few remaining parts still visible. We still have some artifacts of German buttons and portholes from The Wreck.
