As an island nation steeped in Polynesian culture and tradition the ocean plays an important part in Samoan life. “Tangaloa”, the supreme deity in Samoan mythology is ruler of the land but also of the seas. Unlike Tangaloa, scuba diving in Samoa is a relatively new pastime meaning as a guest of Pure Ocean you will visit reefs with no other divers but us, dive on sites that quite possibly have never been dived on before and see first hand some of the South Pacific’s most amazing marine life. If you are new to scuba diving you can take your first breath underwater in the tranquility of our swimming pool as part of an introduction to scuba diving or earn your PADI certification to dive anywhere in the world. At Pure Ocean we have tailored our dive program to allow you the flexibility to dive as often as you like, when you like.

Full Day Boat
The nearby island of Manono is home to some of Samoa’s best dive sites and our full day boat is not only a great day of diving but a great day out too. A morning dive, followed by lunch on Manono Island with time to explore before an afternoon dive.
Taking in two dive sites at either Manono or Upolu with a one hour surface interval our 2 Tank trip allows you to complete a full day’s diving in the morning, be back in time for lunch and be poolside for the rest of the day!
Believe it or not but possibly the nicest time to be underwater is just as the sun is coming up. Witness the reef and marine life that live on it transition from night to day. We will of course have you back in time for your own breakfast.
Visiting a dive site on either Upolu or Manono this single dive boat trip is a great way to start the day. Usually tailored to divers who are used to diving in current but feel free to ask our staff for guidance as to whether the site will be suitable.
As befits the time of day the afternoon dive boat will visit a site that is generally relaxed and easy to dive but will still give you something to talk about over dinner. Beautiful corals and colourful reef life – good photo opportunities.
The most colourful collection of critters you will ever see come out to play at night, you may even get lucky and spot hunting predators. First time night divers will be given a briefing beforehand and we have torches to rent.
