I had big expectations before my first dive in an open water PADI-diving course consisting og 4 dives. I chose the "Sea urchin diving center" located in in Flic en Flac and run by Katherina from Germany. Katherina was my diving instructor from the beginning an I recognized during the first dive, that she was unsatisfied with my effort. When... More

I spent 3 days in Flic en Flac diving with Sea Urchin and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. I was a first time diver trying to get my Open Water Diver certification. The staff was incredibly friendly, professional, and helpful, answering all of my questions thoroughly. I felt very prepared for my 4 dives. I struggled a bit with... More

We did our SSI Adventure Diver with the sea Urchin school. This school is the only one in Flic en Flac which offers SSI courses. Every other school (ticabo) does not offer them and tries to convince you to Padi instead... Both Perrine and Katharina are very experienced and show you things you do not see by yourself if you...

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!!

We were a bit unsure of what to expect but were totally satisfied. as one of the other reviewers said, Sea Urchin Diving center are the perfect mix of chilled out, friendly and organised.

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!
