I was on the trip with other Oceania guests January 22 and would like to echo their concerns and add that, because of conditions in the snorkelling area there were only 4 snorkellers who ventured any distance from the boat and there was absolutely no supervision! Poorly supervised, poorly planned and very poor execution - given the prevailing weather and... More

I used to keep quiet about the Seychelles wanting to avoid having it become a tourist attractions but those days have gone. Fortunately, the shop was able to arrange transportation to and from the shop as well as to and from the boat. Whether above the water or below, the operation was friendly and well run. As for below, the... More

The day arranged to snorkel with this company was ruined by their lack of attention to rough weather conditions, safety of passengers & disinterest from the 3 young crew members. Access to life jackets were not clearly shown nor demonstrated to use. 3 divers were added to our snorkelling trip, making the boat too crowded with extra equipment. Water Access... More

I rarely do negative reviews, but I know that we would have appreciated an honest review of this company propionate to booking. There were 12 snorkelers from the Oceania cruise ship and 3 divers from a local hotel on the boat... about 6 too many people for comfort. We were at the pickup point promptly at 8 AM and it... More

Thank god for trip advisor so I can spread my experience with this dive company. In short, both my wife and I are open water certified. My wife is a little nervous as we only dive once per year when on holiday. We went into the place on the Wednesday and met Liz who I think is the co-owner. She... More

I pre-booked 10 dive package for me and my husband since it's cheaper. My bad!!! Won't do it ever again. When we arrived there, the owner Liz was friendly (so was our communication through e-mails). We booked three dives for the next day. She told us we can already try the bcd so we won't need to bother with it... More
