About The Scuba Diving Session - North Coast

There is nothing as adventurous and exciting as exploring the deep waters of the colourful South Indian Ocean during your vacation in Mauritius. This tropical island is a year-round diving destination, though the summer months (November to March) are optimum as the warmer waters attract a wider variety of marine life.

You will definitely have amazing encounters varying from sea sponges and clown fish hiding among the anemones to moray eels, angelfish, reef sharks, gorgeous coral reefs and not to forget some haunting shipwrecks dating back to the 18th and 19th century.

Dive leisurely and be ready to explore the wonders of the South Indian Ocean. The highly trained SSI, PADI and CMAS instructors are always here to guide you throughout your diving experience. With years of experience in the diving field, you can trust their expertise.

You will first get a detailed briefing from a qualified scuba instructor prior to the pool session that includes an overview of the scuba equipment, the pool session and the sea dive. The pool session will focus on breathing underwater and go through some basic scuba diving skills in preparation for the sea dive, such as learning to move around underwater with gear and learn key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive.

The sea dive will last for about 45 to 60 minutes, during which you will explore the underwater world of Mauritius with a qualified diving instructor.

Scuba diving equipment that you will most likely be provided with include, a wetsuit, a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. There are also safe lockers where you can keep your belongings.

Diving Options:

  • 6 Dive Pack with equipment rental
  • 10 Dive Pack with equipment rental

Diving In The Northern Coast Of Mauritius

The best diving spots in Mauritius are along the northern coast where there is a mix of shallow dives such as the breeding ground of Pereybere Aquarium and ray-filled Confetti Bay. More challenging dives and outings include the wreck of the Japanese trawler Stella Maru and dramatic sites like Peter Holt’s Rock. These dives are full of caves, tunnels and crevices which shelter a broad variety of porcupine fish, giant moray eels and titan triggerfish.

The visibility underwater is usually about twenty to twenty-five metres, although in favourable weather conditions this can become as much as forty metres. The temperature of the water ranges from about 20°C to 30°C, depending on the time of year. It is important to know that during the summer seasons you can expect cyclones clouding the water and making the currents unpredictable. However, over the past years their frequency has drastically decreased.

When diving off the coast of Mauritius, it is almost guaranteed that you will see tuna fish, rays, eels, turtles, lobsters, lion-fish, parrot-fish, crabs, sergeant-major fish and box-fish, just to name a few. If luck is on your side you may even spot dolphins and sharks. The crystal clear water, the abundance of fish life and colourful reefs provide magnificent backdrops for underwater filming and photography opportunities.

When it comes to choosing the appropriate diving spots in Mauritius, scuba divers are definitely spoiled by the eclectic range of places. There are numerous dive sites strewn all over the island.
