Great day out
We were approached by Chris on the beach at Ambre hotel Belle Mare. I had read good reviews of him on the hotels TripAdvisor. We booked the 5 bays trip and had a wonderful time. Snorkelling, going onto the light house island and seeing lots of beautiful Tropicbirds. We visited a waterfall and fed wild monkeys nearby. The BBQ was great with Lobster on the menu and lastly visiting Ilse de Cerfs. A highly recommended day, out well worth the money.

Safety First. Unique transit to dive sites through narrow reef passage.
Ben, Michael, Jason, Vishal all gave very good dive briefings. Popular site even for 'experienced' divers. Caring and friendly team. Well organised / executed transit to site in hard boat (which could be bigger as most dives had 8+ divers). Easy diving with sites very adjacent to each other. Very well maintained equipment with 'steel' cylinders used. Diving 'very' weather dependent.Dear Audrey,Thank you for taking your time to leave us a comment on TripAdvisor.It was a pleasure welcoming you at our Dive Centre. Concerning the boat you are perfectly right and am pleased to tell you that we are already aware of the situation since long time ago and we already order a new boat coming next month.Hoping to welcome you again on the new boat for your next holidays.Best Regards,Ben Cadet

Made our holiday!
We’d checked beforehand about fishing tours before going on hols and narrowed Vicky down to 3.On arriving, it was obvious Vicky was the top choice; He was neither the cheapest nor most expensive.There was no hard sell like others we encountered.My husband is a North Sea fisherman and was very impressed by how immaculate his boats were, all the gear was top range and exceptionally well maintained.If safety’s a concern; unlike some other tours/boats we saw, Vicky always uses 2+ crew and 2 engines which was a major plus for us.His team - Robin, Enrique, James, Dadu and Ryan were all super friendly guys and made the trips great fun, plenty laughs! And lots of local knowledge given to us.We did the island tour 1 day and it was amazing! Snorkelling off the reef, visit to the waterfall and another island and the best private beach BBQ we’ve ever tasted - cooked by Jojo. It was a lovely relaxing private day.We also did a private fishing day too. My husband said it was the best out of all our holiday fishing trips. Just totally exhilarating! We just couldn’t believe how fast the tuna run from hooking/reeling/landing them to heading off after them again! Was a real sight to see.We had to postpone our trips as I had an infected foot, it was zero hassle, Vicky was very kind about it. He also postponed our fishing trip a day too due to the weather. He could have easily taken us out/taken our money but his No 1 concern was us being safe, enjoying it and catching fish. Big credit to him for that.Another shout out to all the boys that took us out and looked after us so well; they were great craic telling us fun stories while doling out the Mauritian coffee!Cannot recommend Vicky and his boys enough. Forgo the champagne breakfasts and couples massages like we did - you can do that anywhere. Spend your money on this, you will not be disappointed.Best time ever! See you next year Vicky.

Perfect day with Tino Boats
We hired the cataraman for the day - just for four of us as the treat of our trip. Tino did not disappoint - we had a fabulous day, sailing to the waterfall and a small sand bar. Food was great. As part of the package we also had parasailing included which we did the day before - they picked us up from our hotel to take us to the beach.Very well organised and good value

Top quality diving!
Dived 3 times with the guys at Pierre Sport, located at the boat house at Ambre Hotel. Easily accessible from the beach if you are another hotel.Dived the Japanese Garden site with Anthony, a dive in the lagoon, and the Belle Mare Pass a.k.a. the Drift Dive with Vishal. The Drift Dive was absolutely fantastic (apparently Prince William has done it with the team a few times!). Boat entry, starting at 4m in the lagoon and then letting the current take you though the break in the reef to deeper water, down to about 24m at its deepest point. At the break in the reef the giant trevally sit waiting for smaller fish and get real close to you as you hold against the current - swimming in your slipstream in your bubbles! Absolutely great experience. Some nice coral structures as you continue deeper and saw a hawksbill turtle near the end who swam with us for a while. I'm not too experienced with drifts in such a strong current, so there were a couple of moments where I used a bit more air than I'd have liked, but felt like I was in safe hands throughout with Vishal.The team are incredibly knowledgeable and have been diving the area almost his whole life. He also did a free try dive with my girlfriend in the hotel pool and then took her out into the lagoon with me tagging along. She felt incredibly safe and it was fantastic to get to dive with her. The marine life even at 2-3m in the lagoon is brilliant. Lots of angry little damsel fish, triggers, parrots, and beautiful groups of flute and trumpet fish. Equipment was good, the dive boat was in good condition with a couple of nice fast engines, price was very reasonable - around 2000 rupees per dive. If you read this guys, thanks for the experience - highlight of the holiday!
