“Fun Group & Enjoyable Diving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

We spent our 2011 Xmas in Flic en Flac and were very happy on all our diving with Sea-Urchin.
First, the dive shop is situated at a great location that is easy to spot for people coming in&out of town. Second, all staff from the shop are seasoned. It didnt take much effort to pickup the routine. Plus, they are very friendly and environmental concious.Third, the DM and instructors are also safety concious. In addition to fun diving, safety is always our main concern. And we are very happy that we went with Sea-Urchin with all our diving in Mauritius. Fourth, if you are able to, try joining them for the side trips such as dolphin watch trip. The captain does not quit until he gets all the dolphins you want...
We will recommend all our diving friends to go with Sea-Urchin shall they be in Mauritius.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

Excellent under water experience. It is a complete adventure, right from wearing the diving suit, learn the sign language to talk underwater.And the thrill to be able to walk on sea land, touch the fishes and feed them bread crumbs....fond memories!!!

“Good professional operation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2011

We had three days of diving with Sea Urchin and could not fault the place - apart from the awful style of sunglasses worn by the boat crew :-)

We enjoyed a variety of sites suitable to our experience and qualification. The staff consulted with us and we selected diving that was appropriate for the weather and tidal conditions. The diving was in small groups and we had a great time.

Woud we use them again? - definitely!

n.b. I believe the previous comment about safety is unjustified. The staff are fully qualified instructors and extending a diver's experience and range safely in accordance with PADI guidelines is acceptable.
