We went diving with my 12 year old son. There are a few easy dive sites in the area which we could enjoy. The dive shop is small and basic but the equipment is reasonable quality. The only drawback was that there are no depth gauges available, which was ok for the easy dives. Dev is very friendly. He came... More

I’m afraid we had a pretty poor experience with Divetime. They are professional and take things seriously, but make no effort on the softer side. Although my wife and I each have around 40 dives, some quite difficult, we are still once-a-year divers, and the first time back under water can be a little daunting. Everywhere else we have dived...

We (my fiancee and I) were diving with Dive Time Mauritius in August 2014 and were absolutely happy with the experience and the service Dev (the owner, manager and principal dive guide) and his helper Manuel provided. On the first planned dived day the conditions on the east coast didn't allow to go out so Dev took us to the... More

Dive Time offers both novice and experienced divers a unique opportunity to explore the East Coast dive sites in the hands of Dev, a very competent and professional instructor/guide/manager with years of local experience. The advantage with DiveTime and the set up here is the ability to go out diving with minimal fuss - quick kit up, a few minutes... More

First poor review I've ever written but my experience was poor. They were professional enough and the gear was to a good standard but their attitude was shocking. Felt like it was all too much trouble. The Canyon dive had very poor vis and 50% of the dive is spent holding on to the bottom. Not what I was told... More

My husband has dived with Dev before so this trip was his second time. I wanted to write this review based on the experience of my 10 year old son who achieved his PADI under the tuition of David who was very thorough, professional and patient. As a result of his expert guidance my son was able to dive to... More

Dev at Dive Time Mauritius persuaded me to take my PADI open water dive course with his colleague Daniel, so glad i did it. It was a very detailed course, Daniel is a great teacher but a bit of a task master he truly wants you to be a safe diver and not just pass. We had some great fun... More

Just got back from a dive with these guys and they are very good, professional briefing, informative and their hire kit is not the usual scruffy resort dive gear, scubapro, Cressi and Suunto are being used. I use my own kit which they looked after as though it was their own, carried it to the boat which is about 50m... More
