Owner description: From the day you arrive, you are among friends. Our Dive Masters give great briefings focusing on safety, and they know their fish and love their world. ​ We offer PADI training packages and Island and Shark Safaris. We dive all the great dive sites around the North including cleaning stations, deep dives, wrecks and aquarium-like reef sites. ​ After a shower back at the dive center, we sit around the table enjoying Mauritian snacks, beer or juice and plan the next dive adventure. ​ Why don't you join us?

We spendt two weeks on Mauritius and did 10 dives with Ocean Spirit Dive Center. The dive center is owned by Jill Holloway, a dive journalist and lovely person who joined a few dive with us which we very much enjoyed.

The people at the dive shop are all great and very helpful. Everybody put in a lot of effort to make all divers happy.

One of the things that impressed us most was probably their new dive boat. It is for sure the best and biggest in Pereybere and probably one of the best in Mauritius. It was custom built in 2017 and provides plenty of space even on a full trip.

With our 300+ dives we really appreciated the independent diving once the guides knew us after the 2nd or 3rd dive.

For us only the organisation prior to the dives left some room for improvement. With OWD's doing their check dives in the lagoon before we were heading out to the dive, sometimes it took quite a while from meeting time until departure of the boat. Sometimes we wished that they would have told us to come in a bit later. But we were not on a run, we were on vacation so it was ok and we used the time to explore one of the many fish books in the shop.

Overall we had a great time, it was hard to say Goodbye and we are looking forward to come back again!

We are really glad you had a good diving experience with the team at Ocean Spirit. Ensuring that divers of any level feel safe and secure is something we focus on, so thank you for that comment. For sure we will improve to offer a better service.
Hopefully we will see you in sunny Mauritius again soon.

Ocean spirit diving is one of the best diving companies I have experienced. The staff are very friendly and yet extremely professional. The dive sites are chosen according to the weather and sea conditions so that you always experience the best dives possible on the day. The boat is very comfortable and has a covered deck. Once in the water the knowledgeable dive masters keep everything professional and yet still fun and enjoyable. They understand that the more advanced divers prefer to be left alone during the dive, which is refreshing. Although they do keep an eye on everyone’s gauges. As an underwater photographer I was able to spend a lot of time in one spot and would often surface with my buddy (dive master) long after everyone had gone up.

Thank Skycomodor
