Diving in Wallis and Futuna

Quick facts

Diving is available on the islands, but it is not hugely developed. Many sites are rarely explored, if ever. Most of the dive sites remain unnamed. At the time of this article, there was only one small diving operation that was up and running, making trips out to all three islands and the surrounding islets. There are shore dives to enjoy, making it easier to set out on your own, though there are an abundance of boats to charter. If you are a Divemaster, these islands may just be your dream come true.

The best visibility can be achieved from April to October, after the rainy season has passed. Bear in mind that December through February can make ocean crossings difficult, as this is when the occasional cyclone passes through the region.

What to see

In addition to the plenteous tropical fish in the region, featuring every color you could dream of, there are some large creatures to behold. Spinner and Fraser’s dolphins play in these crystal clear waters, as well as the occasional pygmy killer whale. You may run across a Beaked Whale or two in deeper waters.

Because of their seclusion, several creatures on the islands can be found nowhere else in the world.
