Called the evening before and were happy to accommodate. Pick up and drop off service provided as well. Very informative briefing before the dive, catering for all diving experience levels.. The dive itself- could not have asked for better: we saw EVERYTHING!!! Wonderful / amazing experience

Our cruise ship did not offer any dive options in Praslin, I contacted Octopus Divers to schedule a dive. Unfortunately, there was an issue and the owner had to cancel the dive. Arnaud at Whitetip divers stepped in to save the day - and dive - for me! Incredible dives around Booby Rock and another location. Stunning coral and diversity... More

The team at Divetip Diver on Praslin is brilliant. Everything is done professionally with no fuss. The gear is in very good condition and you are accompanied by 2 dive masters who know the reefs very well and pointed out rays, sharks, turtles that one would not easily find yourself.

My wife and I spent 6 days at the Paradise Sun Hotel where the White Tip Divers are based. I chose the hotel because the dive shop was so well rated. I was not disappointed. I am 65 and qualified as a diver in college 40 years ago but have long lost my divers card. When I presented myself to... More

I visited here with my partner for our very first dives. We both did the discover diving sessions which included a practice in the tank (getting used to all of the gear etc) and a trip out to St Pierre island which is a short boat ride away. My partner struggled with the breathing and relaxing in the tank so... More

Highly impressive dive at roughly 15 to 20 meters around a little Island called Booby Rock. Nurse Sharks, Rays, Turtles and all sorts of smaller and bigger fish. Fantastic experience

I have always wanted to try scuba diving and there couldn’t be a more perfect setting than the Seychelles. I was petrified at first and couldn’t get used to breathing with the equipment but Roy looked after me and made the experience wonderful. I will definitely be carrying on my experience with the Whitetip team on my next visit to... More

In Seychelles, many underwater things can be seen by snorkeling however we did not want to miss also the deep so we dove with whitetip divers. We met with the owner Arnaud and scheduled with him a refresh dive. His wife came - right on time - to take us from our hotel. A very good guide was assigned to... More
