We visited Oceanium to try scuba diving for the first time and had a great first experience! The staff were enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, making sure we were comfortable with the equipment before taking us out on the water. Each of us got to stay...More

I have been there a long time ago, but just wanted to say that I had an amazing diving experience to this friendly diving center, few dives on Goree or deep wreck in the ocean were all beautiful.

We are not divers but I stayed at the Oceanium while on a business trip last year and, having enjoyed my time there, I came back with my wife and children. The place is quite basic but extremely well located, the staff very helpful (Aita...More

Senegal is one of the most visited countries in western Africa. My country is very colourful, particularly in its fashions. Senegalese people take a pride in their long and patterned traditional clothes. But we also embrace the modern; in the capital of Dakar, there are...More
