About the 90-Min Solar Sea walk - Underwater Walk in Grand Baie

Live an extraordinary adventure underwater, walking on the seafloor to discover the beauty of Mauritian waters. Walk through the reefs and watch marine life unfold before you.

The duration of the activity is around 90 minutes. You will be asked to arrive at the meeting point, Grand Bay, 15 minutes prior to the starting time, and then you will be taken to your boat. The activity has 5 time slots during the day. You will then head to the diving spot where you will jump out of the boat to walk under the sea.

The underwater walk, powered by the sun, is an easy and suitable activity, accessible to the whole family. No previous knowledge of diving and swimming is required to be able to do this activity as you are guided every step of the way. Comfort is guaranteed for this underwater walk as you will be given wetsuits and plastic shoes to walk on the underwater sands. The guides will accompany you throughout your underwater tour to make sure you feel safe.

Before going under water, you will receive a safety briefing and a square helmet connected to solar-powered electric compressors to produce oxygen underwater. Instructors will make sure you feel safe and are able to breathe into the helmet before the descent. The dive location is inside the reef, at about 3-4 metres of turquoise water. Your safety and security is a top priority too - there is an underwater guide and 2 surface divers with you at all times, so you can be rest assured it will be great fun for the whole family while in complete safety.

Unlike other water activities you may be familiar with, the solar underwater walk is both a challenging and fun experience. You will be able to meet many types of fish residing in the warm island waters of the Indian Ocean. Feed them with your own hands, walk amongst them, walk through the shoals and enjoy this extraordinary feeling.

The guides will let you know when it is time to go back to the boat and it will mark the end of your undersea walk. Once back on the boat, you will make your way to the shore, revelling in this peaceful feeling.

If you do not wish to undertake the activity but simply want to accompany your loved one who is diving, you can choose to stay onboard and enjoy the boat ride (subject to extra cost). The sea surrounding Mauritius is already a very nice view to behold and you will enjoy the sea trip.

About the Solar Sea Walk - Undersea Walk

The Solar Sea Undersea Walk is an underwater activity in shallow water that uses solar energy without any relation to scuba diving.

This activity is a form of helmet diving using a "free flow" air supply, which means that air pumped by a hose from the surface flows freely into the helmet at a constant volume at all times - unlike scuba diving where air from a self-contained tank is only delivered on demand.

What makes this activity stand out from other undersea walk activities is that it is Environment Friendly: 100% untainted air is pumped to square non distortion helmets using electric compressors powered by the sun. Even the compressors are very unique as they don’t use any lubrication, so not even micro fumes taint the breathing air unlike other systems on similar activities.
