Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I am an experienced diver and have done a few good dives with Dive Dream Divers.
My review is negative as the dives were good, not because of the service but because of the wealth of dive sites in the bay. The close-vicinity dive sites in this bay in the north are better than those elsewhere in Mauritius.

In summary, the centre is OK in terms of gear, etc., but lacking in all matters related to dealing with people. You simply do not feel comfortable with them.

Going into specifics, in the first dive, we were six people on two wrecks side by side on the wast sand bottom. The dive guide was very friendly and was doing his best. (I learned later that he is a friend of the owner but not an employee.) The site was ideal for two photographers in the group, but it was boring for the rest. This is a sign of a lack of organisation. You would typically split the groups according to their levels and requirements. (Having large groups with so many people per guide is considered a bad practice.) I still tried to enjoy the dive by improvising with my GoPro and taking macro shots, but there is a limit to what you can do with that.

I did two other dives and had a similar experience: the dives were enjoyable, not because of the service but because of the dive site's wealth.

Regrettably, I must express my disappointment with the owner's lack of certain essential qualities, both as a person and as a business owner. These qualities would inspire clients to return for future dives or write good reviews, for that matter.

I feel terrified after reading the reviews below especially that this center and Neysen, the instructor were expelled by PADI. I completed my open water certification with them.

Before enrolling with Dream Divers, I specifically asked if he was certified by PADI, and he assured me he was (he had already been expelled by then). However, when I received my certification, I discovered he was only certified by SDI.

Being someone who finds it hard to voice out, I felt weak and disappointed by his dishonesty at that time, especially since I had saved money specifically for a PADI open water course, not SDI.

I do not recommend this center because the instructor lacks integrity. There are many honest and trustworthy (especially for women, I did find the instructor overly tactile) diving centers available in Mauritius.

The owner/instructor arrived late, starting the dive after 10:00 am instead of 9:00 am as initially planned. The lady at the center was very helpful and kind. The dive itself went fine and smoothly. Price is cheaper compared to other adjacent diving centers.

I was alarmed to learn that he allowed open water divers to dive at around 25m deep, which is unsafe and unethical even if all the divers were fine during the dive.

The diving crew did also make inappropriate comments about women on the beach in front of everyone on the way back to shore. Seems recurring.

Divers must know

Although being PADI EXPELLED, the diving instructors were ok, which was reassuring However, the crew's behaviour towards women towards people was disgusting and unprofessional.

I was also shocked to learn that:

•PADI expelled both the instructor and Diving center. (Being expelled by PADI is a last resort action by PADI)
(Check on PADI website)

•Hygiene standards were shockingly low; they rinsed BCDs, regulators, and wetsuits in the same tub. (Let's be honest here, many of us pee in our wet suits, so pee contaminated water)

I won't be returning to this place.

I don't understand where all these good reviews come from - perhaps all written by yourself? Our experience was unfortunately very negative.

My daughter wanted to try taster diving. The only condition we set was a german-speaking guide. We were given the name of Neysen and she made an appointment with him.
On the day in question, however, my daughter was looked after exclusively by someone who didn't speak a word of German and only incomprehensible English, preferring instead to spend a lot of time looking after 3 French customers. Neysen was present, but he paid no attention and preferred to chill out on the boat.

As a result, my daughter dropped out due to problems during the descent. After this miserable experience, she will definitely never trust a dive guide again.

If Dive Dream Divers can't or won't honour their promises, then they shouldn't make them in the first place. Very bad!

Incidentally, we later learnt that even the staff at the hotel in the vicinity had unequivocally advised against this diving school behind closed doors.

A week ago, I did a tec diving refresher (TDI) and subsequently a decompression dive.
The instructors are very competent and also deal very nicely with customers. Also the prices are more than reasonable. Most recommendable!

It was such a cool experience! It was our first dive ever and Ravi was very professional. The only only thing that I find weird is, that the prices from the website are not true. On the website they want 2500 Rupiens for the beginners diving session and in real they wanted 3000 Rupiens. After asking them why they have different prices on the website, they meant that prices on their website are old and they have to change them...

I can fully recommend Dive Dream Divers and Neyson. He is by far the most responsible, professional and caring dive guide that I ever had. He did his qualifications in Germany and speaks fluent German - and runs his dive shop with German relieability and precision ;)
