They set you up with everything you need equipment wise including great instructors and take you out with speed boats to the dive locations. Of the dive sites, Whale... More

Nothing against the dive shop but if you are going to do one dive in the Seychelles, go to Brissaire. Didn't see much at all on the Praslin dive.

We went to the whitetip dive center with my wife to complete our PADI openwater diver certification and we found that all the staff was very helpful even before we landed. We decided to do the theoretical part before we came to the Seychelles and the staff was very helpful in telling us which bit and pieces needed to be... More

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
