Explore amazing Samoa’s underwater world

The reefs of the Samoan islands have yet to surrender many of their underwater treasures and at Pure Ocean we are always searching for that, as yet undiscovered, gem to add to our list of dive sites. Home to over 900 species of fish and 200 varieties of coral, Samoa is a diver’s paradise just waiting to be explored. Fish-filled natural aquariums, outstanding reef formations and passing pelagics are all within easy reach. The close proximity of Samoa’s main island, Upolu to the neighbouring island of Manono provides us with an amazing array of sites perfect for all levels of diver. Our comfortable, well-equipped dive boats along with our attentive guides and crew will ensure that it’s not only the diving you will remember.

Below you will find brief descriptions of some of the sites we visit but remember, the list is always growing!
