Tufi Resort

Tufi is a small village area located in a remote, pristine region of Papua New Guinea at the tip of Cape Nelson in Oro Province. The breath-taking Tufi “fjords” have been created by the ancient eruption of 3 volcanoes, plunging over 90 metres deep and rising over 150 metres vertically above the water. The scenery is simply spectacular and there is plenty of exploring and cultural experiences to be had for divers and non divers alike.

Tufi offers a variety of diving experiences including a "house reef", which will keep macro photographers happy, where you can find the remains of two PT boats from WWII, a jeep and three fishing boats. The reefs in the "tropical fjords" have excellent snorkelling and diving conditions perfect for muck and macro diving. The untouched "outer reefs" feature excellent visibility and an abundance of marine life and coral growth on a string of bommies. Rare white hammerhead sharks can be seen on these reefs.

Tufi Dive Resort is a personalised boutique dive resort nestled on top of a fjord with stunning 180º panoramic views of the sea, mountains and fjords. In this stress-free environment, the locals are warm and friendly. Tufi is a place where you can be left alone or engage with guests and villagers.
