Forfaits de plongée – Tamarin (Côte Ouest)

Situated in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is home to some of the world's most breathtaking coral reefs and marine life ever to be seen. Filled with hundreds of bright-coloured fish, the underwater world of Mauritius can be deemed a natural wonder that no diver should not miss out on.

Both beginners and certified divers can be sure to have safe and enjoyable dives in the pleasant conditions that our tropical climate offers. Get ready for an exciting adventure and explore the amazing marine life that live in the Mauritian lagoon.

The diving centre is ideally situated at Tamarin bay; a short boat trip will get you to some of the island’s top dive sites, such as the very famous Cathedral dive site.

About Diving in Mauritius

Scuba divers in Mauritius are spoilt for choice of dive sites. There are numerous dive sites 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.

Each dive becomes a unique experience when looking at colourful fish like the butterfly and soldierfish, large corals, majestic lion fish, giant lobsters, scorpion fish, stone fish, barracudas - and with a bit of luck you might even come across friendly dolphins or turtles.

Some divers say there is nothing like the freedom of movement and weightlessness experienced underwater. Being able to hear nothing but the sound of your own breathing while you observe the mesmerizing sea life around you has been said to change lives forever. This wondrous experience is heightened in the clear waters of the Indian Ocean.

Unlike the reefs in 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 colourful reefs provide magnificent 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 colourful fish. These wonderful sea creatures and vegetation provide an incredible scenery for all divers.

The open sea dive will take place under the direct careful supervision of a PADI Professional, so you can freely enjoy your diving experience, without any worries.
