We spent a week diving with sunset. Great facilities and nice people. Only drawback: a bit too much people on the boat.
We particularly appreciated Jean Noël who was a great dive master and gave us great advices.

My recent scuba diving adventure was elevated to an extraordinary level thanks to Paul, undoubtedly the best dive master I’ve ever had the pleasure of diving with. His expertise, attention to detail, and unparalleled ability to make everyone feel at ease underwater truly sets him apart. Paul not only ensured our safety at all times but also went out of his way to point out marine life that we would have otherwise missed, enriching our diving experience immensely. His passion for diving and the marine environment is infectious, making every moment underwater memorable. If you’re looking for a top-notch dive experience, Paul is your go-to. Highly recommended!

We, family of 4 with kids aged 13 and 10, had our first ever Scuba diving initiation with Sunset Diving. The staff was very professional yet really kind all along and was clearly putting safety as top priority. We went for the package with 2 dives at 6 and 12 meters and this was a truly wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

We did four dives with Sunset Divers Grand Baie and were thrilled. From the first moment we felt very comfortable. The crew was sweet, caring and very well organized. The equipment was in top condition, most of it seemed to be brand new. We only dived in small groups, the boats were well equipped and there were great, detailed breefings before the dives. Our guide Jeff was great and was very good at assessing the divers. Since we are experienced divers, he let us dive relatively independently without making us feel neglected or unsafe. The dives in Coin de Mire were breathtakingly beautiful! A total recommendation from us and shout out too Mauritian Lukaku (Shane), his cool swim shorts and the whole crew of Sunset Divers.

I did my first SCUBA training with instructor Shane. In a word he was brilliant. He is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He explains everything clearly. He is very patient and is willing to go through things again as many times as it takes for you to understand. He is smart intelligent and puts you at ease. You would struggle to find a better person to instruct you in this discipline. Putting that to one side; Shane is a thoroughly decent and honest person. Full of integrity and charisma. I cannot recommend him and the team at Sunset Diving highly enough. The Team at Sunset Diving is friendly accommodating, decent and kind. 5 Stars!!!

In summary: 40 minutes dives / no briefing / very poor guiding / a total lack of information and organisation. If you are an experienced diver looking for some nice relaxed dives, avoid this dive center. 


I have been diving for over 20 years, all around the world and this is my first time giving a bad review to a dive center, because:
-The divemaster did not give us any correct dive briefing before the dive and did not care of doing any debriefing after the dive: no information of depth, bottom time, signs, buddies, type of reef, typology, entry in the water, exit from the water. No boat briefing either. This is extremely unprofessional and shows a total lack of care.

-The divemaster ended a dive after 38 minutes even though all divers still had over 80 bars left in their tank. (45 minutes under water was the maximum dive time, safety stop included, for the 4 dives I did). 

- We have been instructed to back roll from the diving boat, all at the same time … which, because of the waves and the current ended up in the diver next to me back rolling onto me. This could have been extremely painful, I was lucky not to get his tank on my head. 

-During the dive, the divemaster came to me, opened my weight belt without telling me anything and tightened it up. I am a very experienced diver and NO ONE is allowed to touch my gear underwater without signalling me that there is a problem to solve. My weight belt was correctly adjusted for me and if the dive guide thinks that he knows better he should at least follow the basic dive procedures: signal and let me adjust it! This is not at all acceptable and it could have been very dangerous. 

-The divemaster spent more time taking pictures and movies of the UW life than trying to guide/show critters to the group: 

1. He spots something cool
2. He takes movies for a while
3. He leaves the place. 

We might think that he would signal the divers in the group that there is something cool to see … nope…
you see it = good for you
you don’t see it = too bad.

- During all the dives (4 dives), we spent at leat 15 minutes (out of the 38 minutes) over the sand seeing NOTHING while the coral reef was absolutely beautiful … why would a guide do anything like this to their divers?
I came to discover the underwater wonders of Mauritius, not to watch a patch of sand!

I could go on and on as this is just the tip of the iceberg, but all the above summarise well enough my experience.
I know that the dive centre will answer this review with a very long text to show that I am wrong but I am fortunate enough to have had a wide number of incredible dives in incredible places with incredible local dive guides to know that nothing I experienced here was OK. 
Avoid this dive center if you love diving and want to enjoy your dive holidays.

Hello diveinkohlipe, difficult to remember you with this nickname. Maybe you volunteer! I would like to say that we always take into account the advice of our divers in order to always improve but your comment which is totally the opposite of our work and services as you can see from the 500 other comments makes us believe that you have never dived with us and that a strong suspicion of concurrent comment arises. we were elected in 2022, best diving center in Mauritius thanks to our professionalism and our safety which is the most important for us. I think there is no further comment to make on your long, well-detailed message. Sincerely

Great diving operator. Well organised, super skilled and very welcoming. We had Shane as a guide/instructor, who kept everything light and fun while also patiently managing quite a big group of divers and making sure everyone was safe and happy. We would definitely book again and can only recommend!
