My boyfriend and I have just returned from 10 days in Mauritius, including two amazing mornings with Just Diving.
Our hotel recommended Just Diving and we are SO glad that they did. Although we are technically PADI Open Water divers, it had been a couple of years since we learnt to dive. Gaelle and Bertrand, the lovely new French owners of Just Diving, were very quick to respond to our requests and helpfully organised a refresher with their instructor Alwin that same afternoon. Gaelle even picked us up and dropped us back at our hotel, despite it being 15 minutes away!
Alwin was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, putting us at ease straightaway. He was especially patient when I needed to practise some skills a few times, such as preparing the BCD and clearing my mask of water in the pool. All the equipment is of a new and excellent standard, which helped us to feel even more safe and prepared for our dives.
On the actual dive mornings, Bertrand and Alwin were really fantastic. We were taken on the smaller boat to some truly beautiful dive sites with amazing coral reefs. Before each dive, they helped us make sure that our equipment was prepared correctly and gave us good advice on what to expect or watch out for. It was also great to meet some other Advanced Open Water divers and Dive Masters on the boat, who were also extremely kind and helpful.
During the dives, Bertrand and Alwin guided us well and showed us so many amazing sea creatures, including lion fish, stone fish, moray eels, many other tropical fish... and best of all, huge sting rays, eagle rays and turtles! What an incredible honour to swim in such amazing surroundings.
The staff were also really professional with keeping to the correct depths, taking safety stops and surface intervals, ensuring that these were done for the appropriate amount of time. (We gather that in certain countries, these rules can often be ignored!!) While we waited on the boat, Alwin kindly took us nearer to shore so that I didn’t get motion sickness from the waves. The cookies and juice were also gratefully received as a quick energy booster!
Overall, if you are looking for a friendly dive company with experienced staff, new equipment, stunning dive sites and an incredible variety of sea life... you have to pick Just Diving! We will certainly be returning some day soon as they have reignited our love of diving!
Merci beaucoup à Gaelle, Bertrand et Alwin. From Katy and Ben, London
