“Diving and boat trips, skiing etc”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

staff are very friendly and helpful, but a pain as you cannot book trips to your room. Have to pay by cash etc. Lot of facilities free to hotel guests, and all sports etc available, with safety for guests a priority.

“Scuba Diving experience enriched by very professional operator”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

Did two dives with them and had a great experience. The staff were very friendly and the instructors were very helpful and very considerate to someone who had not dived for a while. They supplied all the equipment and it was a short walk to the boat. The locations that we dived were pristine and the location of the 2nd dive was especially great, with a wide variety of fish and coral.

The fee for the 1st dive was 2,300 rupees and was only charged 2,000 for the 2nd dive. I felt that this was really value for money, considering the service.

Even though Paradise Diving was right at our Coral Azur hotel, the owner was quite rude and unhelpful and it came across that he did not want our business. Blue Water Diving were very conveniently located to our hotel.

Why only 4 stars for Blue Water Diving? Simply because they are a more attuned to French speaking tourists and should make a better effort to cater for English speaking tourists, but the staff and instructors knew enough to make it passable but one could not have deeper conversations. Having said that, it was a minor irritant in the big scheme of things and I highly recommend them.

What could they do differently? Consider hiring underwater cameras to tourists and then providing a value add photograph printing service. This is the kind of value add service that I really appreciated when I did cage shark diving in South Africa.

“Snorkeling to the barrier”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

I recommend Blue Water Diving center. We had a nice experience with them. My wife and me bought snorkeling gear there for 1500 roupies each. Included was an outing to the barrier with the diving boat. We were delighted by our experience.
I recommend the place. Very professionnal.

“Submarine dive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Well organised. Catered for all ages. My 80 year old parents were glad of the experience. Lovely to see under the sea without having to get wet or have goggles fill up with water
