New Caledonia Best Dive Location Sites Diving Places Points

The visibility is always good, but is slightly better outside the lagoon with 20 to 30 meters against "only" 15 meters inside.
Current: Tides make the current strong in the passes of New Caledonia. otehrwise, inside the lagoon, the current is rather quiet.

Difficulty: New Caledonia is not exactly the best place to start because of the strong current oustide the lagoon but level 1 is sufficient to enjoy the best sites in the archipelago.
The water temperature is around 27° during the months of January and February but can drop to 20° in August.

What can you see while diving and snorkeling?

Marine life, pelagic, wrecks and endemic species

We can say that New Caledonia is a country full of life over and under the surface. In the many passes outside the lagoon, you will spot many pelagics as reef sharks, manta rays or eagle rays. Other sharks also live in these waters as whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks and even the lemon shark. Marine mammals are also very popular with divers but are more difficult to observe. It is likely to see whales, dugongs and dolphins.
Another marine creature is very popular with divers: turtles that abound in the area and can be spotted in large numbers around the islets. New Caledonia is known to have some endemic species like the nautilus, sea creatures that have not evolved much during the last 500 million years.

For macrophotographers, coral reefs are known to be one of the dive destinations with the largest number of different species: frogfish, nudibranchs, leaf fish, mandarin fish ... Finally the charming wrecks "Toho" and "Dieppoise" remain interesting to explore but do not justify a trip from Europe. If you go in New Caledonia, the diving spot "Passe de Boulari" is considered as one of the most beautiful dive sites in the world.
