Vanuatu Pentecostal Land Diving

Vanuatu

Far removed from the familiar cruising circuit, this South Pacific nation is a hidden jewel. One of our favorite dive/snorkel destinations, Vanuatu offers enchanting surprises and unforgettable memories to those who journey here.

Friendly locals, untouched diving, spectacular volcanos and distant isles are key features of this wonderful Melanesian nation. For the privileged few, the highlight is undoubtedly the unique cultural spectacle of Pentecostal land diving. You’ll watch young men hurl themselves off wooden towers 90 feet tall, tethered only by vines twined around their ankles.
