We were a group of four with various diving levels ranging from open water beginners to a rescue diver. We all found the experience top notch, including our beginners who found assurance and confidence underwater due to the competent and professional staff at Atlantis. We dove with 3 different dive masters (Manu, Sandro and Fred aka Frilleux ;) who all... More

Passed my PADI Open Water at Atlantis, a very welcoming club with great teachers in a premium dive spot! Highly recommended, especially for the Planteur at the end of each day.

My French is limited and I hadn't dived for a few years but the team here were really helpful and patient (thanks Pierre)! The diving here is just spectacular - the water is warm and clear and the marine life fantastic. I will definitely return to the reserve with Atlantis.

I really wanted to dive while in Guadeloupe, but I was by myself, I hadn't been diving in a couple years and I don't speak French. I contacted Atlantis via email on a Friday and I was only able to dive on a Sunday, so I was a little limited. Vincent responded back quickly and said he had availability at... More

Guadeloupe was my first time diving... and I loved it so much! The entire team is professional and speak good English. The marine life was diverse and the corals were very healthy. I highly recommend diving with Atlantis Formation!

I have been diving for over 40 years at sites all over the globe. But, as a solo, female diver I never know what kind of experience to expect on any given dive boat.

We dove 4 times during the week we were on Guadeloupe. Vincent, Eric, Sando, and Sophie all spoke enough English to make instruction and exploration so enjoyable. The sites they took us to were diverse and outstanding. Highly recommend them especially if you don't speak French. Be prepared for slightly heavier equipment as the tanks are steel instead of aluminum.... More
