Tufi Resort, Papua New Guinea
Tufi is the ideal location for scuba diving. Warm, crystal clear waters, vibrant reefs and an abundance of fish lead to an unforgettable adventure. Led by Matt, you will be scuba diving the many reefs and even some off the charts that have yet to be explored.
Why Tufi Resort?
Are you ready for a real adventure that has a touch of luxury at the end of each day? DO you desire dive sites that are pristine, untouched by fisherman and divers? Then this is for you. Tufi Resort is the only dive operator that has access to 300 square kilometers of reefs on their doorstep within Oro Province.
During 2017 Matt spent the year running the dive operations for Tufi Resort, training the on-site dive guides and working hand-in-hand with the resort manager to locate new untouched reefs. To quote Matt “The Tufi reefs are like nothing I have ever seen before, inexplicably beautiful and teaming with life. This must be what all reefs where like 100+ years ago.”
