I did a total of 5 dives, a few advance dives and few discover dives with my friends. Hilda helped me with my group of 20 divers for discover dives. All the instructors were really friendly and conducted the dives safely. Most of my friends were diving for the first time and had an amazing time.

The dive was not planned. We were told less than 30 metres and the wreck was over 30. They could find the wreck we were dragged by the boat in the water. The guide was very nervous during the dive and it only lasted 15 min. While we were ascending de instructor infladed the vest of my partner causing a... More

Hello, I am sorry to read this. Sorry for the delay also, it is the first time I created the account for the dive center on Trip Advisor today. The dive was planned to a different dive site which was not possible because there was too much current of this day. We tried to adjust to a new dive site... More

My second time and colleagues first. We got good briefing without being too long or boring. Into the water nice and quick with an instructor who was calm and professional. Visibility wasn't great but we found plenty to see. Very well priced. Nice bar and cafe upstairs.

Really good equipment, great attentive staff. The owner / manager Hilda is superb and runs a very professional centre. Water was very cold about 15 degrees. Visibility was good but the dive site was mediocre.

Did my PADI open water with Nautilus over 5 weekends and loved it - great instructors in multiple languages, friendly, safe and very professional. Also very cheap - well worth a day or two!

We went diving with them over a long weekend and had a great time. The dive instructor Julie is very friendly and professional. The outfit is rather a dive club than a dive shop. The atmosphere is pleasant. The prices are fair. If you live in Dakar or travel through its totally worth diving with them. However, the marine environment... More

I was in Dakar for just ten days and logged 6 dives with them (in 2 weekends). My previous contact was by e-mail and Philippe was ever responsive to my questions and very sincere about the possibilities. The dive center is in Ngor Beach, north of Dakar; while a little bit long distance from downtown, by taxi is just 30... More

Either you come to Dakar on a short or long holiday, if you are a passionate scuba diver, you cannot miss a diving session with Hilda and Phil !!!! Courtesy, sympathy and professionalism to make great your jump in the ocean.
