1 Day Package - Underwater Walk + North Tour + Shopping in Port Louis

This package will get you to cross the main sites of the northern part of the island off your list. This 9 hours guide tour will start when you are being picked up from your place of accommodation to head to the underwater walk site. Feel the excitement build up as you make your way to a journey full of wonders.

Underwater Sea Walk

The Underwater Sea Walk is one of the most unique attractions that one must experience when visiting Mauritius. It is a true once in a lifetime experience for all the non divers out there!

Enjoy a safe and fascinating underwater walk on the ocean bed (about 3-4m depth), and witness firsthand the magnificent marine life of Mauritius, the beautiful fauna, corals, and a wide variety of fish, all in their natural habitat. Qualified experienced guides will accompany you along the course of the Underwater Sea Walk guaranteeing your maximum safety. This is a wonderful experience and a great opportunity to discover the underwater world from within, and make your fantasies come true. The Underwater Sea Walk does not require any knowledge of swimming or diving and you are not even required to remove your glasses.

The Underwater Sea Walk 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 arrival at the platform you will receive a pre-departure briefing on the gear, the local marine life, on safety procedures and on the underwater walking trail.

Then, with the help of the guide you will go off board the platform to start your underwater walk adventure.

How does it work? A helmet with a transparent visor is placed on your head. 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. Once there you will experience the undersea world from close and will enjoy walking on the ocean floor which feels like walking on the moon.

Mauritius National Botanical Garden

The botanical garden is home to an incredible variety of tropical plants, many of them indigenous. The Botanical Garden is one of the most visited sights in Mauritius. It was first opened as a private garden by the French governor of Mauritius nearly 300 years ago. The botanical garden stretches over endless acres of land and it can take you more than a week to cover the whole garden. The Botanical Garden is populated with more than 650 varieties of plants among which are the famous Baobabs, the palmier bouteille, the ineluctable giant water lilies, dozens of medicinal plants, 85 different varieties of palms, a big spice garden and many more. As part of the tour, you will get to explore the Botanical gardens and have a taste of their beauty.

Sugar estate and Museum

The Sugar estate and Museum located in the North West of Mauritius stretches over 5000 square meters. In the estate you will discover the profound effect and the key part of sugar in the history and identity of Mauritius. You will also hear local sugar tales and stories on sugar in Mauritius and on its importance. As part of the sugar estate tour you can see a selection of panorama videos and films on many sugar related subjects. Also, you will have the opportunity to shop at the estate’s boutique.

Be sure not to miss this great opportunity to enjoy the tastes and purchase unique-local made special sugars, and also the very famous local made Mauritian rum!
