i am not sure how things work in Mauritius. we stayed at the Beachcomber and paid for a parasailing for 4 people/4 turns. we made it clear that our children would take two turns should they be too light and have to go together/in tandem. when we got to Maritime and having waited 30min for the boat we were told that we would only have one turn each and in tandem, contrary to what we paid for and agreed upon. The staff at Maritime would not budge and pretended not to understand English. Very, very disappointed and a bitter tasted left after all the promise.

Went to pay the bill after a mornings diving to find an extra 1000 “transfer fee” even though we left from the hotel jetty. Asked other divers who has not been charged. They insisted it was to transport me to the dive site, a 10 minute boat ride away from the hotel. Dived a wreck but the boat driver put us in the wrong place and had to give up finding it after 20 mins going around in circles, found it eventually but wasted half a tank. They thought it was funny, i didn’t. Did not check my license, no buddy checks just straight in. In fact the boat captain wanted me to get my bcd on without checking everything worked first. Dive guides nice and knowledgeable though, happy to dive with them, but the boat/office staff are awful. Went to challenge them about the charge and they insisted it applies, even though I am stood next to another diver who has never paid it in the week he has been there. Awful, avoid!

The team at Maritim diving are excellent! Vikash, Rajiv and Nigel are a really experienced bunch of guys and diving with them has been great fun! They really look out for you and give you tips to improve your form and technique while guiding you around dive sites. I’d definitely recommend the centre and look forward to diving with them again...

Professional and extremely experienced team who were welcoming in every way. Calm, patient and knowledgable with a real focus on safety and helping you develop your confidence and skills. Quality equipment, boat and dive shop area. James leading the shop front explained everything clearly and made me feel very welcome. All the boat crew were extremely helpful and Rajiv my dive lead was a fantastic source of support, experience and calm which was very reassuring to me trying to get myself back into diving enjoyment after losing my confidence after an diving issue with equipment failure at another dive centre. Beautiful dive sites with the added bonus of a relaxed green turtle close sighting. Totally recommend, a huge thank you to all and wishing you all the best for your totally deserved future success

We’ve dived with the team from Maritim Divers for a couple of years now. They are always professional friendly and helpful. Great variety of dive sites (mixture of wrecks and reefs) to accommodate divers of every level. The in house equipment is excellent and well maintained. Would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of diving in Mauritius, even if you’re not staying at the hotel. Vikesh, Rajiv, Nigel, Fabrice & James thank you! We look forward to seeing you again soon Neil & Tash
