Very good experience, a friendly group and a great atmosphere. I don't regret choosing the fifth element at all.

Magnificent experiences!

The first: a first dive for which we were well supervised.
The dive is done in tandem with the instructor.
It’s great to be able to be guided and really be able to enjoy the moment.

The second: sea trip to see whales with snorkelling.
Just wonderful!

A big thank you to Philippe for these beautiful moments of the past.

If we come back to Reunion, without hesitation we will come back to ask you for new adventures!

Daphne and Frédéric.

My partner and I joined a dolphin and whale watching tour. We mentioned from the beginning that we are Dutch and don’t speak French. Unfortunately, the instructor did not speak a word English. He gave all of the instructions and safety precautions in French. He didn’t even make an effort to explain some of the instructions to us. One other participant on the boat was so kind to translate some of the instructions, but it wasn’t as detailed. Once we went into the water, the instructor gave some more instructions in French, which we again didn’t understand. When approaching the whales, my partner and I apparently did something wrong, as the instructor got very angry with us. He spoke in French to the rest of the group about us. One of the participants said that he was making fun of us and that we were the reason why the whales left. We’ve never had such a poor instructor before during one of our activities. He did not make any contact with us. He just seemed irritated that some non-French tourists had joined his trip. We did end up seeing the whales, but his attitude definitely ruined our experience. We therefore do not recommend this organization.

Bonjour, Soit vous avez pris le rendez-vous par téléphone, auquel cas je précise toujours que seul le français est parlé à bord, soit vous l'avez fait via internet, et c'est écrit noir sur blanc. Mais comme vous vouliez absolument faire une activité ce jour-là, vous n'avez probablement pas lu les instructions. À bon entendeur.

I went diving this morning with this guide and had a frightening experience. I was almost out of air at 60 feet and informed the guide who said this was “ok” and not to initiate an ascent. When I was down to 250 psi he still wanted me to remain with him at 60 feet. I judged I did not want to drown so I initiated an ascent. When I got to 30 feet I had 150 psi in my tank and was continuing a slow safe ascent when the guide suddenly and very aggressively swam up to me and grabbed my jacket and pulled me back down to 60 feet with him. He mentioned for me to follow him and I could tell I only had a few breaths left in my tank. We arrive at the boat anchor and then do a very rapid ascent to the surface where I arrive totally out of air. I asked him why on earth he behaved this way on the dive and he says “in France divers must stay together”. I went on my second dive of the day with an alternate company and had a much better and pleasant experience. Just a word of warning, I hope you are more fortunate if you decide to dive with this company.

Il est vrai que vous n'avez jamais uriné dans la mer... Si c'est le cas, vous devriez essayer, cela économiserait 5L d'eau potable. Ceci n'est pas une impolitesse, mais une nécessité. De plus, c'est fait dos aux autres plongeurs et, vu la grandeur de ma piscine naturelle et le courant, il n'y a aucune répercussion sur mes amis les poissons. Tout plongeur après une plongée a envie d'uriner, car on se refroidit 25 fois plus vite dans l'eau que dans l'air. En tant que moniteur, je passe beaucoup de temps dans l'eau pour vous rassurer et vous faire découvrir ma passion et, si possible, quelques tortues. Pour éviter que vous ne sentiez mon urine lorsque j'enlève ma combinaison, je fais effectivement pipi au dernier moment et souvent quand je sors aussi ! Si un jour vous devenez plongeuse, vous verrez que vous ferez exactement pareil. J'ai même une plongeuse qui utilise un urinoir portable pour femme (si vous ne connaissez pas, demandez à Google), ce qui lui évite de se remettre à l'eau. Voici une explication plus détaillée : **Vasoconstriction périphérique :** - Diminution de la surface d’échanges thermiques en réduisant la circulation sanguine aux extrémités (doigts, mains, pieds) et concentration de la chaleur vers les organes internes. - On s'en rend compte par des doigts engourdis et blancs. Si l’exposition au froid persiste, le corps se refroidit. - Afflux sanguin vers le cœur, déclenchant un mécanisme de régulation pour diminuer le surplus de liquide par l’élimination de l’eau du plasma, vers les endroits où il y a de la place, les reins (d’où l’envie d’uriner). On appelle cela la diurèse du froid. Je vois que votre baptême vous a énormément plu et c'est le principal. Personnellement, quand quelque chose me dérange, je n'attends pas pour en parler... Je préfère aborder directement le sujet pour avoir des explications. Après, il y a ceux qui ont une personnalité, et il y a les autres... À bon entendeur.

Unpleasant, rude instructor who refuses to reimburse his clients when they flee... strongly avoid, you will find much better elsewhere!

Bonjour, Si seulement on pouvait fuir certaines personnes... De plus, je pense que vous vous êtes trompé dans votre avis, car je ne demande pas de paiement à l'avance, donc il est difficile de parler de remboursement... Cordialement,
