We pulled into Port Villa, Vanuatu around 7:00 am in the morning. Quiet, calm seas and sunny skies. I shot some photos of the rock formations (not seen here) as we made our way to dock. This was an interesting island to visit with its’ open air market and small shops and cool dive spots.

Love when I meet new friends while abroad. I met this couple in the South Pacific who live near me. What a small world. The following high resolution images are courtesy of Ian Lennard & Carrie Berkovich. Thanks guys for sharing and beautiful images.

This dive site was named Million Dollar Point for a reason. After WWII the U.S. Armed Forces attempted to sell millions of dollars worth of jeeps, bulldozers, trucks, fork lifts, tractors, unopened boxes of clothing and cases of Coca-Cola, etc. to anyone who wanted them. Since nobody wanted to buy them, the military bulldozed everything into the ocean to spite those who would not buy. This act left behind a graveyard of junk from WWII.
Old tugboat at the bottom of the bay. The first man made thing I approached on this dive.

This was a spectacular dive. The healthiest sea life and reef that I have ever experienced at that time.
Enjoy the video, I have not extracted stills from this one yet, so sit back, relax and enjoy this dive.
