Yes I dived there quite a while ago now,stayed at Beau Vallon Bay on Mahe( think thats how you spell it).
Did a few boat dives with the PADI Dive Centre there, on some nice reefs as you'd expect warm water, superb vis. Had a memorable night dive around some caves.
During one of the weeks I was there in June was plagued with a bloom of small jellyfish got stung by the little devils, nothing dangerous just annoying.:yuck:
I found that the coral got a bit boring after a week, better if you can visit some of the other islands whilst there.

parahandy thanks for the info what cost did you pay for lead and tank rental as my e mails to the dive centre have not been answered.Is there shore diving along with boat diving?

Just had a look in my log books I hired everything except, Regulator, Mask, Fins and Snorkel. I dived from the shore( guided with the instructor)£20 per day including air. At the particular resort I was at I did a night dive from a boat in some caves £30. Just looked it was the Seychelles Underwater Centre the staff were friendly enough.

I thought the price was rather steep at the time,think you be better negociating a dive package up front if poss.:wink:
As I've already mentioned to get the maximum out of the trip well worth visting the other islands.
