Diving on Pom Pom

About our Diving

Pom Pom island is a coral cay with a fringing reef rising up from the seabed nearly 100m below. The reef slope is steep and nearly vertical in places. The lagoon supports many green turtles which come to fed and nest. The whole island has amazing biodiversity with a complete range from pygmy seahorses and other macro delights to turtles, rays and sharks.

Pom Pom is in the coral triangle and has more species of marine life than most other parts of the ocean. Since we started working here, the fish life of Pom Pom has improved dramatically and we now have more species, more fish and bigger fish. From schools of barracuda to coral cat sharks, the dive sites are getting better. We dive on many different sites, from walls to wrecks, to jetties and to unexplored locations where we never see another diver. Our turtle, shark and fish surveys and our biodiversity studies and the reef restoration work take us to a variety of great dive locations.


We have PADI qualified instructors teaching the whole range of PADI courses, from Open Water to Dive Master. Learning here is a great way to take your next step in the PADI qualifications. You can do your coursework and instructions at the same time as doing rewarding work helping save our reefs. Get in touch to discuss mixing instruction with volunteering!
