From the first entrance to the cleaning up of my gear Rodney, Cedric and Roger made me welcome. There is an easy going atmosphere which could be interpreted as laise faire but beneath the surface is a serious attention to detail. The briefings were quite comprehensive dealing with what we were expecting to see and who we would buddy with,... More

My friends and I really wanted to find a good operator for our first dives in the Indic Ocean. After reading many great reviews, we decided for this place. The staff is good and if you dont have a recent dive on your log book, you will have to do a written test and go to the ocean for a... More

A friendly welcome and good material awaited us at the ocean spirit diving center. The dive sites are colorful and specially during our nightdive. The safari to Coin de Mire is definitely worth it. Unfortunately it was not possible to go to the other northern islands or down to the wrecks, it seemed that therefore the boats and crew but... More

Just got back to the UK from a fortnight in Mauritius. Had decided to take the PADI Open Water training before my holiday but didn't get a chance to research dive centres proceeding the trip; so it was pretty fortunate that Ocean Spirit were just a few bus stops from my hotel. I door stopped a few other dive centres... More

OK, so it's taken me a little while to get around to finally posting a review (a little while being about 22 months - poor form; my bad!) Was determined to do my PADI Open Water Certificate whilst in Mauritius in Jan 13. Looked up OS, liked the reviews and booked the course. Rodney, my instructor, was fantastic. Patient, knowledgable,... More

I cannot speak more highly of this operation - we are still here and diving throughout next week. Sheena is efficient and friendly at the base, Rodney is fun knowledgable and a great dive leader. Roger is the Daddy of the dive boat and really looks after his divers especially those who are not quite so relaxed. We have done... More

The owner, Cedric, was welcoming, friendly and accommodating and his staff the same. My husband and I were looked after in every way and thoroughly enjoyed 4 dives including a 2 dive 'safari' to a wreck and a coral garden off the coast. When we return to Mauritius, and we will, we will not be diving with anyone else. His... More

Just returned from our holiday in Mauritius. Rodney was an excellent instructor and helped me get my Open Water. He was very focused on safety, ensuring I was comfortable with the exercises and helped me relax when I had a small issue during one of the dives. I would recommend him to any first time diver and applaud him on... More

I went on a diving trip with Ocean Spirit with a mate recently and got ripped-off. We paid 3,580 Rupees for just two dives. You can do exactly the same dives at other dive centres in Grand Baie for roughly 2,600 Rupees. The cost included a 'safari'... this is a scam. There is no 'safari' in the packages. Our dive...

In answer to this review, I would reply the following. The Safari activity does not include only two dives, but a well stuffed snack box, drinks and a dessert for each diver and a fare along the gunners Island from one extreme side to the other. Besides this, it is clearly indicated on our web site "www.osdiving.org" - "Northern Island... More
