WA school group returns from Vanuatu

Written by Daniel RogersonMazenod school group in Vanuatu

Through Perth Scuba, Mazenod College has run an extra curricula scuba diving program for several years now.  Students are able to complete their PADI Open Water certification and also go onto complete the Advanced certification as well.

This year students where invited on the inaugural Dive Tour overseas to Vanuatu.  During the July school holidays 26 students, parents and teachers set off on our underwater adventure.

Vanuatu is a beautiful country that seems almost untouched by tourism.  The air was a warm 26 degrees, with the water even warmer.  Students completed 10 dives whilst on the island resort of Hideaway Island, with students being exposed to an array of amazing underwater sceneries and marine life.  They were able to penetrate shipwrecks, swim with turtles and on the rare occasion white tip reef sharks.

Diving in Vanuatu was an amazing experience, allowing the students to see the world from the bottom up.

Not only were the boys able to experience the wonders of the underwater world, they were also able to immerse themselves into the local culture. They had the opportunity to tour the local village and interact with the children in the village school, abseil waterfalls, taste local cuisines and tour around the capital of Port Vila.

The trip was a wonderful and rewarding experience for all and I’m sure will leave many lasting memories.
