If you are looking for the perfect dive centre in Mauritius - you have found it!! 100% recommended from A to Z - super professional, skilled and relaxed crew, we have had our best dives with Ludo and his team so far! They know the area excellently and when to dive where, we saw all kind of fish, sting rays and did the wreck dive, which was breathtaking! The whole team is very experienced and gives you helpful tips and tricks for your diving skills. Safety always comes first, you get a thorough briefing and then just have fun under water as well as on the boat. The whole diving experience couldn't be better - Big THANK YOU to Ludo, Maria & Ben for these unforgettable days! We will be back soon! 😃 Carmen & Georg

Returned to Octo Diving after a few years and the quality standards are just as high as the previous time. Everything is taken care of, good briefing, excellent service, fun and safe diving. Diverse dive sites and staff loves what they do. Also their prices are very moderate compared to other dive centers around. No matter the level of experience, every diver has a good time with Octo divers.

I hadn't dived for a year and half since getting my open water certification and was a bit nervous initially due to my lack of diving experience. Octopus diving is very professional and has extremely skilled divers. I had such a great experience during my refresher and both of my dives. The entire crew on board was positive and fun. A special thanks to my guide Pascal who made my diving experience so awesome, and took the time to teach me things I hadn't learned. They guage your level and tailor the dive to meet your needs. Definitely recommend going with thus company, you can't go wrong!

Words can't describe how beautiful Mauritius is, the island people, their hospitality is so welcoming and warm and not to mention the ultra gorgeous weather.  I've been a a big fan of diving whenever I go on holiday. I happened to meet Ludo at Octopus diving center whose office is just outside Pereybere Beach and we instantly hit it off with his personality and his experience. Ludo has a very big team of super expert staff divers who specialize in various different fields. More than the dive it was awesome knowing the staff,  the dive was totally fun to experience in the Bluewater Coral rigged Indian Ocean. The dive has left me with a big positive impact and I am definitely going back again to do more dives and if not to PADI course surely with octopus diving. Thank you Ludo for being so friendly, thank you Pascal for being so funny and  thank you Theo for taking some gorgeous videos and pictures.

We had a great time at Octopus Diving, Ludo was fantastic and Pascal was also great. We started the open water course but due to asthma issues, we couldn't continue. However, Ludo let us join the dive group the next day on their trip and gave us all the gear for snorkelling and took us out on the boat with them. Just so happened they were going to the best snorkelling place on the island so that worked out great! We really enjoyed meeting both Ludo and Pascal, and we had a great time even if we didn't finish the open water course. Thank you both!
