I was looking for a "S"erious dive center in Mauritius to start my certification. I did dive once in my life but was not satisfied with the dive center/personnel and the experience then. From a friend, I learnt about Hughes Vitry's club in the North and one day I dropped there to get more info. I decided to give it... More

as per the title, i have mixed feelings. Blue Water is obviously a serious dive center, with good material, good boats and skilled staff. Pierre was also very helpful in setting us up for diving when we showed up without warning. however, for the 2nd time in my experience, i ran into a French system that does not care how... More

My wife and I have tried the "baptême" option for beginners as we had never done it before. The whole experience has been fantastic. Loic and François, our two monitors have been very patient and professional during our diving and took time explaining what we needed to know to really enjoy the diving. We had never seen so may colourful... More

Picked Blue Water off the Internet as the place to use for dive trips in Mon Choisy and Trou aux biches. We took all our own dive kit but the rental gear seems to be a good standard and the cylinders (which can sometimes be abused, troublesome and tatty) were all in good condition. We've dived extensively in the UK... More

Wonderful team, best service, good equipment, big boats, well experienced capitain, breathtaking spots, perfect instructions: We spent outstanding 10 days with Loic, who is a great and patient instructor as well as a nice and gentle guy: Hopefully he will visit us in Germany, if he travels through Europe! Thanks once again for the unforgetable time!

We were out on the boat for 6 days, during rather rough conditions, on a special research charter. Navin and Axel were exceptional as captain and guide, and took care of us and made us feel very safe. They really know what they are doing, and take care to look after both the customers and the marine environment. Food was... More

I have joined Blue Water Diving Centre many times in the last 3 years and each time has been great from start to end. The people are very welcoming and friendly, always asking how we went, checking diet requirements and taking into accounts special requests. I usually go out on the boat with Captain Navin and guide Axel. They are,... More

Firstly, you should know that Mauritius is by default optimised for French speaking tourists. This said, English is widely spoken – but you will recognise the issue even on a diving day. Secondly, and although I felt safe during diving with Blue Water Diving Centre, I could not understand why the company support diving gears (to be rented), which don't have... More

I really enjoyed my time there! The place is really well run with one of the most technically equipped team and boats. The dive masters know their sites really well, but are also able to change things up on the fly if you'd like something different or more challenging. I definitely recommend their shark safari dives. Spending a day on... More

The dive center is well run and the equipment appears well maintained. The boats are some of the best I have dived off. However if you are English speaking, expect to be treated like a second rate citizen. I only did 2 dives as it was unpleasant to say the least. From my arrival until I collected my gear, only...
