From the beginning, the crew of the dive center was friendly and helpful in every way. They achieved to have different groups on different levels, which other dive centers fail upon. They organized the transport between our hotel and the dive center. Absolutely friendliest divers!!

When you dive with them... More

Katharina, Perrine and Sebastian.. Thank you for a great experience in September. Diving was great, always tea, coffee and good conversation before and after. Katharina is all business when it's dive time. Well maintained. See you January 2015!

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
