Vores dykkercenter er under tysk ledelse.

Individuelt, professionelt og i samspil med vores omgivelser.

SeaUrchin Diving Center blev grundlagt i 2006 af Katharina Dohmann. SeaUrchin Diving Center er et af de mest erfarne dykkerskoler/centre på Mauritius. Katharina Dohmann forlod Tyskland, for at fuldføre sin drøm om at dykning skulle være tilgængeligt for alle – og til en rimelig pris. SeaUrchin Diving Center har nu opereret over 10 år i Mauritius. Vores professionelle medarbejdere har derfor stor erfaring i, at tilrettelægge dagens dyk, ud fra vores klienters ønsker og formåen.

Vi er aktive medspillere i, at øge bevidstheden omkring hvor vigtig, og skrøbelig, verdenen under vand er for os, for dig og for vores klode. Dykning er ikke kun en sport. Dykning er også et værktøj til, at få forståelse for hvordan vores jord er skruet sammen, såvel over vand som under vand. Vi tror på, at en øget bevidsthed, giver en øget vilje til at ændre hvordan vores adfærd har indvirkning på det, ret så skrøbelige, miljø under vandet. Hvilket vi ikke kun støtter helhjertet op om, men også praktiserer på i vores daglige arbejde.

Vi er den eneste dykkerskole i Mauritius, som tilbyder tre forskellige dykker systemer – SSI, PADI og CMAS. Kurserne bliver undervist på engelsk, tysk og fransk som udgangspunkt. Derfor er det muligt for os, at garanterer, at den undervisning du modtager, teoretisk og praktisk, er lige for alle.

SeaUrchin Diving Center er den eneste dykkerskole på Mauritius, som kan uddanne SSI instruktører. Katharina er certificeret SSI Instructor Trainer, som den første her på øen, hvilket betyder at hun er autoriseret til at uddanne og forme en dykker fra den spæde start helt op til professionel instruktør niveau.

Det er vigtigt for os, at vi tilbyder dykker kurser i mindre grupper, med et maksimum på 4-6 dykkere pr. gruppe. Dette giver en unik mulighed for, at undervise og uddanne dig i et trygt miljø.

Vores dyk er altid anført af en dykker professionel, din sikkerhed og tryghed er altid vores første prioritet.

Yderligere er det også vigtigt for os, at du synes her er rart at være. Vores center har altid kaffe og te på kanden, og har du brug for et varmt bad efter dit dyk, er det naturligvis også noget vi kan tilbyde – dog skal du selv medbringe håndklæde.
