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

We have just returned from our holiday in the Seychelles and we dived with the Whitetip divers over a 2 week period. They are a great team and the dive operation is extremely well run. They have a small pool for DSD (discover scuba diving) and 2 really good boats for those adventuring further. They are a qualified, friendly and... More

We did two dives with Whitetip during a weekend trip to Praslin. The dive shop was great - The owners were helpful and very sweet. The DMs were very professional, knowledgeable about local species, and fun. The shop is based at one of the resorts, but provided free transport to and from our hotel on Grand Anse.

What a great dive was had with Whitetip Divers! So professional and super chilled (whilst still adhering to all the safety requirements etc). It was a relaxed dive at Boobie Rock, and we were lucky to see sharks, a HUGE turle and a pod of 5 dolphins! Not to mention the ABUNDANT tropical fish - it was majestic! Neddy was... More
