We traveled to the Seychelles specifically to do our PADI Advanced qualification and I'm glad we went with Blue Sea Divers.
Our instructor for the course was Arjun who was great, as were all of the staff who were professional and attentive on the boat; keeping an eye on the guests and ensuring that everyone is kitted up properly. On one dive I had a minor issue where my reg was letting in water and they changed it over for me with a spare set they had on the boat.
The dive sites chosen were varied and interesting with Arjun spotting lots of interesting wildlife including Eagle rays, Sea turtles and a Reef shark.
In between dives we had coffee and delicious banana bread.
The highlight was whilst we were doing our deep dive as part of the course. As we were kneeling on the sandy bottom at around 28 meters down suddenly it got dark and we all looked up to see a massive school of Jack-fish descending on us! There were thousands of fish surrounding us and as we ascended slowly it was like being in the center of a fish tornado! A magical experience.
My wife and I are in the Seychelles for a couple of days and had planned to do at least four dives. We had not made any prior arrangements before landing. Did a search on PADI Pro as well as TripAdvisor. And Blue Sea Divers has some positive reviews. The day before we wanted to dive weather was dismal but we took a walk to find the quaint dive centre. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with warm smiles from DM Mubry and offered tea & coffee. Vinessia who runs the centre was most professional in her conduct and it was agreed that they would collect us from our hotel the next morning around 8:30. Next day as agreed they were there to collect us loaded our dive gear and took us to the dive centre. Upon our arrival. We were briefed on the plan for the morning. Our cylinders had already been marked with our names and loaded onto the boat. All we had to do was sort out our own gear and get changed. On the board, our names were down with the required weight allocation - absolutely impressive!! Mubry and the other members of staff were fun and lighthearted without lacking professionalism. The dives were fabulous. Between the two dives we were offered tea, coffee and biscuits on the boat. The skipper Denis was great and the crew extremely helpful. A huge thank you to all of you and especially to Vanessia for maintaining such a well run centre. From bookings to separate sanitized wash tanks. Definitely my vote for anyone keen to do some diving in the area!!!

If you looking for a really great tasting pizza, after you dive. We can highly recommend the pizza place across the road from the dive center. The most delicious pizza I have had in years!!!
the operation runs perfectly thanks to Vanessia. they provide a good service and they try as much as they can to vary the offer of their dives, but diving within mahe island wasnt impressive, the reef is dead, there are fishies to be honest, we saw 1 turtle, 1 white tip reef shark, 1 manta shrimp, but nothing really impressive..
