Marine Conservation Efforts:
As a Green Fins Member, we actively work to minimise our carbon footprint and environmental impact. We have a zero tolerance approach to any physical touching or interaction with marine life underwater, and work to practice responsible anchoring.

Teaching and Diving Conditions

Confined water dives (confined open water or swimming pool):
We have a large, private purpose-built training pool on site at our resort, used exclusively for Confined Water training sessions and skills practice. Our students have full access to the pool at any time, and it gives the additional comfort of excellent training conditions, visibility and clarity all year round.
Open water dive conditions:
The crystal clear, warm waters of Mauritius offer excellent visibility and diving all year round. The water temperature ranges from between 25 and 28 degrees. The conditions are generally relaxed, with minimal surface and underwater current. Our boat reaches the dive sites between 7 and 20 minutes.
Classroom details:
We have several open plan break out and study areas, as well as a purpose-built professional classroom with high speed WiFi, moveable desks and chairs, various technology platforms, whiteboards and smart TVs. We use and teach from only the latest PADI digital software and materials.
Things to see on fun dives:
There is a wide diversity of marine life in Mauritius including macro, pelagic, pristine wrecks, drift dives and deep dives. We have the opportunity to see turtles, reef sharks, whales in season, octopus, eagle rays, as well as the macro including frog fish, leaf fish, ribbon eels and mantis shrimp.
