Snorkeling

Scuba divers in Mauritius are spoilt for choice of dive sites. There are numerous dive sites strewn all over the island. Beginners can start at the shallow side of the ocean, whereas experienced divers can head straight for the more adventurous dive sites such as cliffs, caverns, reefs, pinnacles and wrecks.

One of the most well-known and popular dive sites in Mauritius is located off the Flic en Flac. Unlike Seychelles and the Maldives, the coral reefs in Mauritius have not been bleached or affected by the warming of the ocean. The crystal clear water, the abundance of fish life and colorful reefs provide backdrops for underwater filming and photography.

Mauritius, almost completely encircled by a barrier coral reef, is home to many sponges, sea anemones and a variety of multi-colored fish such as the Damselfis, Trumpet, Boxfish not forgetting the playful clown, as well as Mauritian scorpion with its unique orange color.

Most beaches have good diving companies around to offer diving trips.

Best Time for Diving in Mauritius - Summer (November to March) are considered to be the best time for Diving.
