I go often to Oceanium - to kayak. Have never used their diving facilities. What i definitely DO recommend Oceanium for - is the kayak rental. It is very inexpensive (much cheaper than anywhere else). The kayaks are open top so you will get wet....More

I have been there a long time ago, but just wanted to say that I had an amazing diving experience to this friendly diving center, few dives on Goree or deep wreck in the ocean were all beautiful.

Senegal is one of the most visited countries in western Africa. My country is very colourful, particularly in its fashions. Senegalese people take a pride in their long and patterned traditional clothes. But we also embrace the modern; in the capital of Dakar, there are...More
