I only did two dives in one morning with a Sea Urchin and would come back again and again. Such a lovely laid back crew that make diving so easy, relaxing and stress free. I've never gone from dive shop to dive site as quickly as you do here! I have dived all over the world and this would have... More

This is a small place and difficult to notice if you are driving in Flic n Flac. I happened to accidently find the place and casually inquired without any intention of going for scuba diving. In fact their batches for the day were also over. I met gentleman called Nicholas who explained the Dos and Donts of scuba diving and... More

I tried Sea Urchin for scuba diving and was pleasantly surprised. The instructor was good and explained all rules patiently. The equipment, dive location were great too. The dive itself was awesome - the reef, the fishes were plenty and added to the whole experience.

This place has a recipe for a perfect dive. Very relaxing and still professional, flexible and still well organized, with attention to make you enjoy ... we loved it. We did one great dive with Giovanni, a great fellow in and out of the water. We also rent the equipment and it looked well maintained. Pity we had no time... More

My 9 yr young daughter had her first experience provided by Katherina herself who had taught her own kids earlier. She had a wonderful day and we booked another day with this dive center. Sebastian took care of me very professionally. Definitely recommend sea urchin dive center.

the staff was frinedly, the service very luxurious; no carrying of equipment, which was in a good condition; trustful masters and a very relaxed dive. I would go there, again.

In October 2013 we dived six times with Sea Urchin. Our guide, Sebastian, turned out to be very friendly and even tempered, which is, however, also true for the rest of the crew. Due to the relaxed atmosphere of this base, the well maintained equipment as well as the capable guides and instructors we would dive again with Sea Urchin.... More

I've been staying in Mauritius for the past five months, diving each weekend with Sea Urchin, who became my Saturday-family. The friendly and very professional team has coached me from absolute beginner to receiving my advanced PADI certification last week - and I can't thank them enough. Don't dive anywhere else when you come to Mauritius! My only critique is... More

four of us dived with the guys in May and the experience was amazing. Although we were not newbies, they ensured that we were safe and there was no rush in jumping in. Whenever we rushed, we were told by Jo: "relax, you're on Holiday". They kindly agreed to arrange a night dive for us and we thoroughly enjoyed that.... More
