I can wholeheartedly recommend Whitetips as a super place to dive. Arnaud, the owner is a friendly, laid back Frenchman, the kind of guy you want to stay and have a beer with after your dive. He has been doing this many years, knows all the divesites like the back of his hand, so you feel safe and well looked... More

If you want to diving on Praslin, do it with Whitetip Divers! They are well equipped with dive-gear (except for computers) and although there have been quite a few divers, they are very well organized, prepare your proper gear, give good briefings and know who to pay attention to. The boats they are using are in proper condition. Only advice:... More

This is the dive shop on Anse Volbert at the Paradise Sun hotel. I dove both here and with Octopus. Both are excellent, but the staff here saved me. After diving I was walking on the beach in the water in front of the shop and stepped on a sting ray. I limped over to the shop and the staff... More

It was my first dive ever and i was terrified and ready to give up (twice actually :) ) but the instructor was amazing and convinced me to try again. Then, for the whole dive, he hold my hand and made me feel safe. Perfect for a first time experience!

While on holiday on Praslin we wanted to try our first dive and so we opted for the full day discover scuba diving course here. Arnaud, the owner, taught us the theory first and then we tried some practice exercises with him in the pool before going near St. Pierre island to do our first dive in the sea. There... More

We had great dives with Simona and Arnaud. The equipment is in perfect condition and you can see that they pay real care to keep it that way. Simona and Arnaud are both professional and relaxed, have a great sense of humour, which makes diving tours with them absolutely fantastic. Since it had been a while since our last dive,... More

My husband and two children went on two dives with this company. Really friendly Dive Master, allayed any fears that my youngest had and took the family on two great afternoons out. Very professional and would use again.

It was my a first diving in my life and guys were really professional and supporting. I would advise everyone to start their diving adventure with them. The chosen spot for diving near St Pierre was beautiful, we've seen many tropical fish and some small sharks.

Service: My husband and I went to Whitetip Divers to get our open water scuba certification. From the start, Arnaud and Simona were perfectly professional and courteous. Arnaud was very communicative with my husband, which made the process of signing up seamless. Upon arriving there, when my husband expressed his concern about his sinus issues, Arnaud explained that we could... More

Simona was an awesome instructor, who was very patient, thorough and gentle while leading us through the open water course. We felt we gained very strong fundamental skills. Unfortunately, I could not finish my course with her because of the sinus problem at her recommendation (although I wanted to), but this shows that she and her husband put divers safety... More
