Buddy's Reef

Buddy's is one of our "close in" house reefs. Great for mid afternoon "snack dives" and night dives. This reef has it all-turtles, rays, white & black tip sharks all amongst a combination of soft and hard corals. A photographers delight!

Tufi Dive Resort

Some of their favourite dive sites continued:

Black Rocks & Black Rocks Two

Black Rocks and it's brother site, Black Rocks 2 are our most southerly sites. These circular reefs with deep spurs offer all levels of diving. Gentle currents bring in schools of fishes including Barracuda, Jack and Mackerel. Large silver Trevally play hide and seek with a bevy of reef sharks. The exposed surface rocks offer great swimming and snorkeling in between dives in a protected setting.

Bev's & Marian's

These two close in reefs offer something for everyone. Friendly sharks patrol the reef slopes along with schools of tang, bat fish and other marine life. Cray fish hide in the nooks and crannies until dark when you can find them walking on the reef top and sandy slopes. Great dives for all levels of ability we also use these sites for many of our training programs.

Some more of their favourite dive sites continued:

Mulloway

Leading the dive team's favorite sites, this dive offers a steep wall plummeting 200 meters or more. Always exciting, but with a big current this dive becomes electric! Hammerheads, reef sharks, rays, turtles and schools of barracuda, tuna, mackerel and more. At "The Point" , one can find a rock to hold on to and watch the show! We have two moorings here to take advantage of the prevailing currents on any given day. A yearly St. Patrick's Day must dive.

Minor

Minor reef with it's hidden bommie and Minor wall with its giant drop off are two of our many great dives. The bommie, a short swim off into blue water offers schools of batfish, sharks, turtles and great corals. Small enough to circumvent twice at different depths this bommie has a great coral top undamaged by storms. The wall that leads off Minor reef in the opposite direction of the Bommie is a great 2nd dive with hard/soft corals, patrolling sharks, bump head parrot fish and an occasional Maori Wrasse.

Paul's Reef

This small patch of reef draws a slight current that entices reef sharks, turtles, barracuda and Spanish mackerel. On the reef top, amongst the prolific staghorn corals are spiny lobster & morey eels. The reef walls support great growths of soft corals and fans.

Some of their favourite dive sites continued:

Shark Tip

One of their newest sites. They chose the name because they are always greeted by several sharks-white tips, black tips, silver tips as well as grays. They try to not dive on this site more than once a week to keep the sharks as interested in us as we are in them. A great combination dive day with a visit to black rocks after diving Shark tip.

Stewart Reef

Their "house reef" offers superb diving both day and night. Here you can wall dive amongst soft corals, fans and a very healthy fish population. Excellent hard corals and sea whips entice you in visibility that seems endless. Epaulette sharks, decorator crabs, octopus and morey eels come out to play at night making this a great night dive.

Tony's Bommie

A favorite of their dive team! This deep dive provides their experienced divers with the opportunity to see large schools of barracuda, sharks and pelagics. Frequent regular visitors to this dive site are Manta-rays and giant groupers. Tony's Bommie always has great action going on and never disappoints!

Tufi Dive Resort

Some of their favourite dive sites continued:

Veale Reef

An excellent dive site on an astounding reef. In their region where typical visibility can be 130 feet/40 meters this reef site often offers 165 feet/ 50 meter visibility. All the better to dive this steep wall where hammerhead sharks, dogtooth tuna, Spanish mackerel, reef sharks and other pelagics compete for your attention. The reef top is carpeted with staghorn and plate corals in excellent condition. Cuts and crevices sculpture the drop-off and giant sponges are prolific. You can spend your safety stop amongst schools of small fish on the top of this pristine reef.

"Your Name" Reef

On their many exploratory dives you'll have the opportunity to discover and perhaps name one of our many new sites that are being discovered every week! Weather it's a wall dive, a new reef or bommie or perhaps even a previously undiscovered wreck - your imagination and adrenaline will be challenged on these exploratory excursions

Tufi Dive Resort

History

In the 18th century Tufi was first recognised as an idyllic anchorage for British capital ships. Later, and in the same period, it became a government station, occupied by the British. The first missionaries here were Anglican and their religion remains predominant today.

The Tufi Dive Resort occupies the site that was formally the District Manager's residence during PNG's colonial era, and later during WW2 became an American patrol boat base. The remnants of several patrol boats and aircraft remain on the sea floor and provide a special dive experience.

After WW2 the Homestead was converted to a guesthouse for government employees and other buildings were added. The Laki Hotel was built in the 1970's and Tufi became a popular getaway for Port Moresby residents

For those that do not dive, enjoy a lengthy guided bushwalk to an adjoining fjord and take in the magnificent views of Cape Nelson or the peaks of Mt Trafalgar.

Canoe or kayak the fjords and experience the magnificent waterfalls that cascade from the cliff tops.

For the naturalists, experience the largest butterfly in the world, the Alexandra Bird Wing. Perhaps enjoy a leisurely swim or a stroll down a sandy beach five minutes from your unit door.
