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!

A regular dive center with not the greatest service. Equipment is ok, have free nitrox, but need to take your gear to and from the boat yourself.
