My wife and I just got back from two days of diving with Remi at Cabrits Dive Centre to celebrate our honeymoon. What a superb experience!

Remi manages to surf the line between being totally chilled out, yet still keeping a close eye on everything very well, ensuring a safe and enjoyable dive. He also has an amazing eye for the marine life, sniffing out the hardest to spot sea creatures with seeming ease.

As for Dominica, I now know why it's a top ten dive destination. Aside from the amazingly diverse and colourful reef and corals we saw octopus, moray eels, lion fish, scorpion fish, barracuda, pipe fish, porcupine fish, trunk fish, huge crabs, lobsters, a stingray and just generally a large abundance of fish.

If you enjoy diving and are in Dominica, don't hesitate to stop by Cabrits Dive centre, you won't regret it

Amazing experience diving with Carbrits Dive and Remi and Virginie. We dove two days with them, all of the dive sites were incredibly beautiful. We are regular divers, this was our first time diving in Dominica and I would highly recommend doing some dives up in this area with Cabrits Dive. We enjoyed hot cafe and banana bread on our surface interval! So much life here, and we even spotted two seahorses and a baby trunkfish. Excellent diving experience and highly recommend.

These guys are amazing. The dive sites were spot on and the husband and wife team..are your guides for the dive. Their rental gear is very well maintained and their boat was super easy to dive from. We saw a ton of stuff and their stewardship of the reefs was exemplary. You can tell they truly care about Dominica and the environment. I would definitely dive with them again. Recommend 100%.

Looks like a solid diving shop. Poor communication so, Whatsup replies takes 3-4 days if at all. We booked a dive for a family of 4 in person a few days before and then arrived the night before as agreed (no confirmation reply to our whatsup send the day before). They then tell us that they have an additional group of 10 people for the same dive slots with us. This will be 17 people on a small dive boat with 3 instructors only. One of the instructors is the boat captain at the same time (I hope he won't be under water if there is an emergency). Given COVID and the fact that they didn't communicate with us and inform us, we had to cancel last minute and now have one additional night on Prtsmouth we booked specifically for being able to dive with them.

As a rule, I do not review products or services. However, the services rendered by Virginie and Remi at Cabritts Dive Center demand acknowledgment.
After a 25 year hiatus from diving, it was time to start over. To put this into perspective, recall the double hose regulator days. That’s when I began diving in the early 70s. My refresher course with Remi and Virginie had me up and running after one dive.
After that we made 14 more dives on some of the loveliest coral sites in the Caribbean. These folks are personally warm as well as professional. Their equipment is all top notch Aqualung. Their dive boat is well suited to dive work and easy to mount/dismount. Their facility is clean and well appointed. Their dive groups are small and friendly.
They are knowledgeable about the reef inhabitants and share your enthusiasm upon their discovery.
In short, do not hesitate to employ their services. You will not regret it.

Virginie and Remi (French Ex-Pats) have a fantastic dive operation in Picard. We dove with them for three days and enjoyed each dive. They are wonderful hosts and made the experience enjoyable. They only have one small dive boat so the group is never large. The ride to the various sites was no more than fifteen minutes. The diving was some of the best I've seen in the Carribean so far. Can't recommend this shop enough. It's a find. If you're looking to dive in the NE end of Dominica, look no further.

5 star Padi dive center: provides excellent service, good quality, well maintained equipment, and knowledgeable dive masters. Dive sites range from south of Secret Bay, north to many sites around Toucarie, and ultimately to the wild Atlantic side, weather and current permitting.Virginie and Remi provide a safe, professional experience married to deep familiarity with the marine biology below.

We did enjoy our time diving with Cabrits. The owners/Divemasters were nice and helpful. This one complaint I had was the number of people on the boat. There were already 10 divers from a group that had been diving together. With us that left 14 divers, two dive masters, and one helper on a small boat. It was very crowded and difficult to gear up. Had we known the number we would have likely chose otherwise. There was very little help anyone could provide with equipment, etc since you couldn't even properly get around each other on the boat.

We completed our open water PADI certification at the Cabrits Dive Centre and it was amazing!
Fantastic place to begin our diving adventure. Remi and Virginie were both very friendly and helpful throughout the course. We felt very at ease with them and Virginie was an excellent teacher.
The diving in that part of Dominica was amazing, from the coral reefs to the wide variety of wild life.
We could not recommend this dive centre enough, we had a fantastic week and what an incredible place to start diving!

We dove two days with Remi and Virginie and absolutely loved the whole experience! The corals were so healthy and beautiful up around Portsmouth. I got to see my first seahorse!! The life on the reef was amazing! We loved the speed that each of them dive. Very chill and relaxing and not a "race" across the reef. Absolutely favorite was the Toucari Caves dive. Though I have to give a huge thank you to Remi for letting my son hunt lionfish. That made his diving experience! The hot cafe and tea during the surface intervals along with Virginie's amazing banana bread was fantastic. Thank you so much to Cabrits Dive Centre.
