On the 15th of April 1993 Diving World opened its doors at Beachcomber Mauricia and started creating memorable experiences for young and old. A lot has changed in the past 25 years.
As Mauritius Grew from a tiny sugar cane and fishing island in the Indian Ocean, to a world class tropical island holiday destination -Dirt roads became paved, sugar cane fields transformed into entertainment hubs and a once half day trip to the airport can now easily be done in 45 minutes. Diving World also grew over these 25 years and within the Beachcomber Group opened up at Canonnier in 1994, Victoria in 1996 and Shandrani in 1997.
From the start, Diving World Through was committed to excellence and aquatic discovery. Ten’s of thousands have created life long memories and a love for the ocean, with many coming back for more. We have stood the test of time as we are the oldest scuba diving operator in Mauritius. Discovering many of the coral reefs the rest of the island dive on, as well as assisting in creating some of Mauritius’ most beautiful artificial reefs.
We will keep on striving to innovate and be the best while helping our guests discover the amazing marine life Mauritius has to offer. Through growing with the Beachcomober Group, we will keep on sharing the beautiful experience of scuba diving with as many people as possible, in a safe and fun environment. This commitment has resulted in being awarded the PADI Award for Outstanding Achievement and being nominated as a Leading Dive Resort in the Indian Ocean by the World Travel Award for three years in a row.
In the future we will also be focusing on marine conservation and continued education. We already have the only PADI Green Awarded dive center, and will continue working on being the industry leader for the protection and conservation of the environment. Through coral conservation and reef protection we will be working closely with NGO’s and governmental agencies to protect the fragile underwater ecosystem.
A special mention to our staff, who have been there from the start and without whom we would never have achieved what we have. At the core of our business, we have a wonderful team of friendly and professional people supporting all our activities. They have walked a long road with us and in doing so have undergone great personal growth. From pumping cylinders as teenager into world class PADI and CMAS Professionals. We have always believed in developing our staff to their full potential and will continue doing so in the years to come.
At Diving World we believe in seeing a bright future for ourselves as being the market leader in sharing our love for scuba diving and the underwater world.
Here’s to the next 25 years and beyond!
