Well, if you are a scuba diver and you are on the Seychelles. ...you have to go under water there. This scuba dive base is perfect for that. Nice staff, free pickup and dropoff at hotel, well situated base, all service. Definitely worth going there!

Having tried scuba diving for the first time on Mahé, I opted to go for a PADI 'Open Water Diver' course with online/eLearning for theory and doing the practical part during my time on Praslin. Octopus Diving was near to where I stayed, so I...More
