    I chose this PADI site based on proximity to Cousteau reserve and the 5 stars it gets in the PADI app.
    I can say they are a) very able to accommodate on short notice b) very friendly c) professional d) very good value for money.
    Felt safe and in good hands with both the owner and another Dive master later in the afternoon.
    Plenty of equipment to borrow if you need.
    Sites are close to their location minimising the need to travel far by boat.
    Great dives.
    The Cousteau reserve in itself was more “very good” than “wow/amazing/never-seen-anything-like-it-before” but that’s still a very positive experience for me.
    Would definitely recommend!

    Excellence personified. The team were helpful, knowledgeable and keen to ensure we had the best (and safest) time… which we did.

    All kit was well kept and in full working order, the team gave us advice and guidance and we had everything we needed for a great day out. This was amazing value for money and something for all the family to get involved in.

    Had fun diving with them. They were patient with my friend and me. Will definitely dive with them again if I visit Guadeloupe.

    Also, Betty deserves a raise!

    This was our second time to do a "baptism" dive in tandem with an instructor, since we are total dive novices. Alexis and his team were incredibly welcoming and put us at ease, answering all of our questions, and leading us on an unforgettable experience. Both my husband and I wanted to dive and they let us bring our 6 year old son on board with us for no extra cost and even outfitted him in a wet suit in case he wanted to snorkel with one parent while the other was diving. Super sympa! Last year we did our first dive at Les Ilets de Pigeon (Jardin de Corail). This year's dive was more impressive on the lesser know reef just off of the coast from La Rand'eau. The environment was remarkably more colorful (coral varieties) than the Jardin de Corail, which is so much more frequented by tourists. La Rand'eau is hard to find. There are signs 900 meters before the turn off, going south, and at 500 m. before coming north, but none at the actual turn-off. The turn-off is at the big sign for "Restaurant La Tortue" which shares the space in the cove with La Rand'eau. Book in advance! We tried to book a snorkeling tour initially, and they were already booked up for 4 days in advance. Enjoy!

    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 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!

    If you want to take a Kayak to the Cousteau national reserve (which you should because it’s awesome), definitely choose Caraibe Kayak.
    Great people helped us (Robert and Saleem) and we had an awesome day, 3 hours is more than enough for you to Kayak out to the reserve, snorkel for a full 2 hours, and Kayak back, if you do take fins stay in deeper water to avoid damaging the coral reef, we unfortunately saw many people with fins accidentally kicking into the corals, really sad to see in such a pretty spot. My wife and I took water shoes and they were sufficient to enjoy the reef. Before leaving Caraibe kayaks gives you a briefing on what to expect and avoid at the reserve, it is suggested to listen to this as it is very informative, and upon returning the equipment you get a drink! Which was unexpected but welcomed after all the paddling. They were also nice enough to let me keep the snorkel gear I rented past our rental to use at the beach, which was nice of them. Definitely recommend kayaking with Caraibe Kayak.

    Since we cannot visit and dive during the pandemic, the best thing to do is to improve your skills and knowledge.
    I had the pleasure to meet online with Jeoffrey from Bleu Passion. He was more than helpful in helping me find what I was looking for in SSI eLearning. I completed all my courses from home. I took a bunch of courses called Ecology Pack. It was wonderful to learn all the interesting facts about all the sea creatures I meet while diving.

    I even completed my Nitrox and Dry Suit course, just need to go and find the nearest SSI dive shop to complete the practical part of the course.

    Jeoffrey was great to chat with and we plan on visiting their shop when we go diving in Guadeloupe. Can't wait to put all my learning to use on the reef.

    Thanks guys

    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!

    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.

    Amazing scuba dive center. The Cousteau reserve is a really nice spot and the people at CIP are very professional and experienced.

    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 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.

    Helpful and friendly staff, a great view from the glass lined hull and some snorkeling time. The coral and marine life were a bit disappointing but there is a lot of tourist traffic around the reserve so to be expected.
