Join us on a journey away from the large crowds to the serene ambience and protected warm waters of the outer coral reef systems.

With a large variety of sea life and beautiful corals, Upolu Reef also has a sheltered lagoon featuring friendly sea turtles, lots of giant clams and a huge variety of colourful fish all of which are a feast for the eyes of those looking for great snorkelling and scuba diving.

With four hours of time on the reef it gives you plenty of time to relax and experience this amazing reef adventure and the chance to explore the fascinating marine life and coral gardens below the waters surface at your own pace.

Personalised, Relaxed Sailing Tour

A high rate of crew to passengers means a personalised, friendly experience delivered by our family owned and operated sailing tour.

With a small group, you can explore by snorkelling or scuba diving at your leisure at the pristine outer reef, and master skills in your own time with maximum attention from the instructor.

Afterwards enjoy relaxing in the bow nets or in the solar-powered spa on board this stylish catamaran.

This was a great day. The first reef we stopped at was fantastic plenty to see. Unfortunately the second reef we stopped at the current was to strong. Most people came back to the boat early. Under these circumstances the crew did a good job in making us feel safe.
