Cedric is a well experienced Scuba diving Instructor with more than 6,000 logged dives and certified more than 1,000 students from all over the world in English, French and German.
He is born in Mauritius in 1981. His father, Francois Fayolle, introduced Cedric to scuba diving when he was 6 years of age. Before he knew it, Cedric got connected with the ocean in ways he would not understand until years later.
In 2000, Cedric became a CMAS 2* Instructor and worked at the biggest PADI 5* dive centre in Mauritius for a couple of months, before being encouraged by his manager and one of his many mentors to open his own centre. He founded Ocean Spirit with the help of his father in 2001.
Since then, the business has known an increasing audience and a well established name and reputation for serious safe and fun diving as centre and school.
Cedric has since then upgraded towards PADI and SSI OWSI Instructor, as well as NITROX Gas Blender and Instructor, making Ocean Spirit dive centre, one amongst a small handful dive operators in Mauritius to provide Nitrox.
In March 2017, Cedric left the operation in the hands of a new management to dedicate more of his time into conservation.
