    Friendly, efficient outfit. Knowledgeable staff. Equipment well maintained. All set-up to provide a pleasant experience for clients. The coconut snack and planter's punch at the end of it all was appreciated.

    Amazing dive experience today with Aurélie as a divemaster. The location is really exceptional and worth the dive. The dive shop is very professional. My only regret is that I only did one dive.

    This is an unpretentious, highly professional dive shop right in front of the Reserve Cousteau. One of the few outfits in Guadeloupe to have multilingual staff (French, English, Spanish…) AND that works to the highest level within both the French and international (PADI) standards, we were - as experienced divers but with no prior experience in France - made to feel most welcome. Do not expect a shiny store front or roadside advertising - these guys don’t need it. They have a small boat and do three outings a day. Park your car in front of the store, gear up, and the boat awaits just across the street. Our thanks to Nadège for her warm welcome and logistical prowess both prior to and during our visit, and to the entire team of captains / instructors who ensured we enjoyed the magnificent Parc Cousteau.

    Merci!

    We recommend deeply to choose this experience by this guide!
    Unfortunately we came 45 minutes too late due to the traffic. The guide was very kind and explained that it's just sad for us because the later you get there the less you'll see. So we recommend to be there early!
    You can tell the guide does the job because he loves it and not to earn the money. He took his time (doesn't look even on his watch) and explained everything thoroughly. He also looked after our well-being e.g. gave us water in between stops. After the tour, he loved to drink with us, gave us tips for what to do on Guadeloupe and get to know us better.
    It was a magical experience by a very professional and kind person. We loved it!

    I am a PADI Divemaster and had three days of two morning dives with Les Heures Saines and I had a great experience. Unfortunately I do not speak French but everyone went out of their way to ensure that I knew what was going on, to make sure I had a solid dive briefing, and had as much information about the boat, the dive, and the dive site as possible. The morning dives were early - at the shop at 7:30am but the benefit is that I was in a small group with just 2 other divers and a guide, or just me and the guide. It was exceptional personalized service. All the dives are in the Costeau Marine Park which is only a 5 minute boat ride from the dive shop so it's very easy to get to. We also did a dive off the dock one morning and say turtles and Octopi, plus many smaller creatures. There were many students on the boat as well as those who have just learned to dive or newly certified, and the guides made sure that everyone wqs grouped by skill level and experience, which is highly valued by me. The equipment was all fairly new and there were no issues with BCD, Reg, and Fins. This is the first time I have dived without weights - the tanks are large and metal, so quite heavy, which was new to me but worked out well and was easy to get used to. And you were immediately offered tea or water once you were back on the boat and had your equipment off. All 6 dives I had were minimum 55 minutes with most 60 mins. Also, the shop is very easy to find and there is a lot of parking available. My only disappointment was there was no night dive option available the week I was there but maybe next time!

    PS - There were kittens at the Dive Shop!

    We took a "Level 1" visit with our 9 year old son and were impressed by the guide's care and ability to blend explanations of the terrain and plants into our descent of the canyon.
    Our guide was very careful to enable us to do i.e. jumps, but was very helpful to allow those uncomfortable to climb around difficult pieces.
    A great afternoon!

    We booked and paid the tour online and everything went fine.
    The staff are very friendly and kept everyone well informed.
    There is a canister for the kayak so nothing gets wet. If you want to go snorkelling, bring water shoes and sunscreen for the coral! The island is easy to reach, lots of pretty fish but also many excursion boats with divers. All in all a top Trip.
    A shower curtain in the warehouse for changing wet clothes would be nice 😉 Thanks for the training in 2 languages (English and French) 😁.
    And greetings from Vienna, Gabi and Stefan

    My wife and I chose Alizée Plongé for her diving baptism following the advice of friends who had dove with them. Staff were friendly, didactic, and I was particularly impressed by the comments made to ensure we (the tourists) didn’t adversely impact the environment. Smaller and less mass-market than other providers on Malendure, I wholeheartedly recommend diving with them at Réserve Cousteau.

    I would recommend Phillippe,s dive centre. He runs a very good centre with good equipment and is safety conscious.
    I was not booked in GPE when I arrived but soon found out the centre I was booked with, was a dive factory!!.
    GPE is totally different Phillippe is patience, very knowledgeable about the sea life and the island.
    Most of my dives where 70 minutes long and we have been the only boat at the sites.
    Anyone visiting Guadeloupe to dive should pay Phillippe a visit.

    Wonderful people run this place. Went to Jacques Cousteau’s under water park and swam with the turtles. Manou was our guide and was informative and very funny. We had a wind afternoon!

    Regrettably, we were relatively new to scuba when we dived, so were not able to fully enjoy this fantastic site. The DM was great, vert patient (he needed to be!). We will definitely return ASAP to fully absorb this terrific venue. Nice beachside cafes too!

    We were arriving on a cruise ship so the timing was important. Our group of 9 were met by Jeoffrey at the cruise port with a large comfortable bus and dropped off at a beach near the dive shop for a short beach stay. Jeoffrey then shuttled us to his dive shop and we had a lovely afternoon dive in the Aquarium. His well equipped shop outfitted us and after a short boat ride we had a 60 minute dive. His excellent crew got 9 of us in and out of the water safely and showed us the largest turtle and one of the biggest Eels I have ever seen. The bus got us back on board the Costa Pacifica with lots of time. Great Service - Thank you for a very memorable day!

    We booked at the beach after trying to phone the company for 2 day - phone was not answered. But that was the only negative thing about the company. Staff at booking office all spoke good English and we're very helpful and friendly. Our guide could speak English and took time to explain things to us in English after telling everyone else in French. The boat had fish guides in English so we could find the fish we had seen. We were out for just over 2 hours and stopped at 3 locations. The first two were brilliant for fish and at the last we saw 3 turtles. The guide was great with the young children on the boat helping them to feel confident in the water and even had some type of fish viewing device that the children (or adults) could use from the boat to look at fish. We would all highly recommend this trip and the company - thank you for a great time.
