Beyond the club’s commitment to provide you with high standards of service and security, Octopus Diver which is the only 5 star dive centre on Praslin is a unique place for its warmth and friendliness, a gathering point for scuba divers worldwide.
Octopus is also engaged in a Coral reef conservation project that is being held at St Pierre island, which is the famous dive site for beginners and snorkelers which will help promote the growth of corals and increase the populations of different species of fish in the area.
You can enjoy the vast leisure lounge where we regularly display our best underwater photographic and videos. After the scuba session, this is where you can share your diving impressions around a cup of tea or coffee, compare photographies and leaf through the club’s books.
All this in beautiful settings just next to the ocean.
