About Diving in Mauritius

The island is home to a variety of colourful fish such as the kingfish, moray eels, triggerfish, stone fish, lionfish, parrot fish, leaf fish and sea slugs. You will also have the chance to see mesmerising and colourful soft corals and algae and if luck is on your side, spot some gorgeous dolphins and sea turtles!
