This chapter raises rarely explored elements of Austronesian histories in broad Oceanic contexts of diving industries. It reconfigures archipelagic sensibilities in Southern oceans, framed initially through gender and conceptions of health or research expertise. Highlighting and diffracting womens historical and ongoing experiences, it seeks a future in which diverse women are represented in their own voices regarding frontier encounters and global sustainability endeavours.
