Plunge into the blue waters of the Indian Ocean and explore the seabed during this unique sub-marine walk in Grand Baie. Discover the vivid and varied marine life of Mauritius, with no diving or swimming experience required.
What to Expect
Enjoy a safe and fascinating 20-minute walk on the ocean bed 3-4 meters (10-13 feet) under the water. Witness firsthand the magnificent marine life of Mauritius, the beautiful plant life, corals, and a wide variety of fish ̶ all in their natural habitat.
The excursion begins with a motorboat transfer from the center of Grand Baie to a platform situated inside the lagoon at the north of Mauritius. Upon arriving at the platform, you will receive a briefing on the equipment, the local marine life, safety procedures, and the underwater walking trail.
Then, with the help of your guide, you will leave the platform to start your underwater adventure. Enter a world of undersea wonders as you walk between corals, see a variety of fish, and discover the rich sea life of Mauritius in the clear blue water of the lagoon.
You don't even need to know how to swim, just walk. A helmet with a transparent visor is placed on your head, and a special apparatus allows normal breathing under the water. Life guards assist in taking you underwater and accompany you throughout the walk to guarantee your maximum safety.
