Dive Tonga is a PADI 5* Dive Center located in the heart of the Vava'u island group, Tonga.

This dive center is the first ever to offer year-round access to some of the best diving in the world. Until now, the underwater treasures of Vava'u have been limited to a couple of months of the year, but not anymore!

This location offers 40+ meters visibility and gives access to stunning reef systems, drop offs, caves and swim-throughs. Mantas, eagle rays, sunfish and sharks are commonly sighted throughout the year!

If wrecks are your thing, explore the Clan MacWilliam, a 140 meter copra steamer which sank in 1927 in Neiafu Harbour, now sitting upright in less than 40 meters of water.

Each day includes 2 dives and complimentary dive gear. You will be picked up by the boat from Mystic Sands and whisked off to the day's dive site. 

Light refreshments are provided during the surface interval and speciality dives can be arranged on request.

Resort Description

Tongan Beach Resort sits at the very edge of a beautiful island, with its own private beach and year-round diving.

Check the blackboard for a daily menu of dive trips, available through the onsite 5* PADI dive center. For other activities, the resort's very own floating pontoon is where operators stop by for daily pick-ups. Swimming with humpback whales is a guest favourite - and these waters attract hundreds of the gentle giants every year.

The aptly-named 'Sandpit' bar, where clamshells are ashtrays and coconuts are glasses, is a great place to meet fellow divers and throw back a cocktail or two after the last dive. All rooms are beachfront and made comfortable with a super king bed, ceiling fan, insect screens, modern ensuite bathroom and decked balcony with a table and chairs.
