Photographers will love the camera suite. Spend hours underwater discovering new behaviours and those hard to find critters with great visibility or try your hand at blackwater diving. Excellent wall diving adds to the excitement. The dive team have over 30 years of experience in technical diving and at Kasai Village our dive guides are trained up to Hypoxic Trimix and Technical Rebreather certification, as well as Cave diving and DPV diving.

The dive centre at the Kasai Village resort is conveniently located on site. Roll out of your room and straight into the action. All PADI courses are taught here from intro dives to Divemaster. Each group is kept small so you have the instructor's complete attention. Not sure what course to do next? Then why not try the Specialty of the Month. Children are also welcome to join in all the fun. From the age of 8 kids can don their scuba gear for the first time and play underwater in a carefully controlled environment.

The house reef is a must see with many of those hard to find critters just metres away from your room. The house reef opens at 06:00 in the morning. Grab your buddy and away you go onto a reef stuffed with nudibranch, mandarin fish and pygmy seahorses.. Guided dives are recommended to help find those really small beasts. Want to take the boat and get further away? The dive team have mapped out the entire region with over 35 sites identified. There is something new everyday and never more than a 60 minute boat ride. Most sites are actually around 15 minutes from the resort. Each day the schedule is tailored to suit you and the boat departs with no more than 8 divers. Night dives are on offer every night on the house reef and about once a week from the boat. A diving holiday to the Kasai Village dive resort is anything but mundane!
