Come Dive With Us
With an ideal temperature all year long, waters harbouring treasures for everlasting memories, lagoons stretching out to the coral reefs, passes, outer reefs, drop-offs or shipwrecks, Mauritius has multiple diving opportunities for both beginners and experienced divers. Internationally recognised courses (CMAS and PADI certifications being the most renowned ones worldwide) are also offered by diving centres.
Sensitive to safety issues and environmental concerns, the national association places great emphasis on these two elements. After having remained relatively unexplored for quite some time, it is now agreed that the Mauritian marine underworld is worth the trip, as testified by the prominent place that most hotels around the island give to diving activities. There are countless good reasons for which you should come and dive in Mauritius, one of the most notable ones being the proximity of the sites, which can be reached between 5-20 minutes boat rides, or even the possibility of having your first diving experience in a swimming pool and a lagoon with bountiful stocks of fish and shimmering corals. Here in Mauritius, diving sites are everything but congested. For the sake of environmental protection, boats are not anchored and with just a few diving groups on the different sites, you’ll be in for an amazing discovery of this fascinating world. Each region boasts of its very own characteristics and assets. In the following pages we take you through a discovery of some of these regions.
All of our equipment meet European Standards and our dive schools are equipped with the following items.
Each dive center has it’s own BAUER Compressor and well maintained filters ensures contaminant free, pure, dry air.
Each of our schools has its own boat that has an open deck layout. These boats are equipped with twin outboard engines, tank racks, and divers ladder as well as a hard top to provide shade. Our boats have a telephone as well as DAN oxygen kits on board.
Scuba Gear :
Our schools are kitted out with Scubapro and Cressi regulators and BCDs.Wetsuits are all 5mm full suits in winter and Shortys 2.5 mm in summer.
We carry a wide range of fin sizes and masks to suit most faces.
We have different sized steel tanks from 10 litre, 12 litre to 15 litre ; these thanks are fitted with K valves that are suited for DIN and International regulators.
Decompression Table :
As a safety precaution we generally do no decompression dives. We are a PADI affiliated operation and we use PADI non-decompression tables. These non-decompression tables adhere to the international recreational scuba diving standards (RSTC). For added safety, our Instructors and Divemasters are equipped with dive computers.
The dive schools are found within the hotel grounds.
For our younger divers (from 10 years old), we ensure their comfort by keeping child sized wetsuits and BCD’s.
