Diving in Mauritius

Mauritius voted “Best Indian Ocean diving destination” for 2015

With an ideal temperature all year long, waters harbouring treasures for everlasting memories, lagoons stretching out to the coral reefs, passes, outer reefs, drop-offs or shipwrecks, Mauritius has multiple diving opportunities for both beginners and experienced divers. Internationally recognised courses (CMAS and PADI certifications being the most renowned ones worldwide) are also offered by diving centres.

A fascinating world...

Sensitive to safety issues and environmental concerns, the national association places great emphasis on these two elements. After having remained relatively unexplored for quite some time, it is now agreed that the Mauritian marine underworld is worth the trip, as testified by the prominent place that most hotels around the island give to diving activities.

There are countless good reasons for which you should come and dive in Mauritius, one of the most notable ones being the proximity of the sites, which can be reached within 20-minute boat rides, or even the possibility of having your first diving experience in a swimming pool and a lagoon with bountiful stocks of fish and shimmering corals. Here in Mauritius, diving sites are everything but congested. For the sake of environmental protection, boats are not anchored and with just a few diving groups on the different sites, you’ll be in for an amazing discovery of this fascinating world. Each region boasts of its very own characteristics and assets.
