Waiting times could be less

The diving cites are very nice and the instructors very friendly and helpful although they are understaffed and therefore the waiting times are too long up to one hour

The dive center at Long Beach Hotel was just a info/pass to the diving center oat the neighbouring Hotel Belle Mare Plage, which was a bit of a disappointment. Once at the neighbouring hotel and the "Blues Diving Center", things worked out perfectly and I got three wonderful dives even if underwater life and the corals was not quite like... More

I completed a couple of specialty courses for my master scuba diver certification with Blues Diving Centre. Even though it was a busy time over Christmas/New Year, the centre was excellent at organizing the courses and dives. The owner Jean-Michel was very accommodating and helpful, the instructor, Jonathan, was super professional and took me on some wonderful dives. All the... More

After completing our PADI Open Water in England, my partner and I decided to go with Blues Diving Centre for our first logged dives. Neither one of us can think of a single negative aspect of our experience and will definitely be revisiting to dive with them again! All equipment was sized and set up by the instructors (obviously with... More

Our 8 year old son wanted to learn to dive and we enrolled him in a "bubble maker" introductory diving course. After a quick dive in the hotel pool, the instructor took him for his first scuba dive in the lagoon and he came back totally enthralled and looking forward to a qualification when he is 10. My wife and... More

We had amazing two dives and passed our scuba diver certification. We previously passed the theoretical and confined water part; which let me very stressed with the 'mask emptying' exercise. Thanks to Gwen, all my fear were far away - his patience, professionalism allowed me to enjoy the dive, relax and successfully and calmly do all the exercises. We were... More

We wish to thank Juan Michel for organising and giving my son a chance to realise his dream of diving in Mauritius. He has dived a few times in S.A., but this dive was a special one for him. Thank you to all staff for your care and professionalism.

This was without a doubt, the worst dive centre I have ever been unfortunate enough to enter. The dive equipment was in an appalling state, with my regulator making trumpeting sounds under water as if I was trying to call some seals for mating season. The wetsuits all had holes in them and the equipment smelled bad and clearly was... More
