Diving in Mauritius

Diving in Mauritius Island

Almost as nice as the Maldives, that’s the general opinion among divers. Understandable, it is in fact great to dive in waters warmer than 30° C, choosing among a huge variety of diving-sites and having the great opportunity to meet here and there a hungry shark.

Courses are offered all around the island in one of the numerous diving-centers (most of them inside the hotels, but accessible to non-residents as well). Depending on the diving-center, courses in PADI, CMAS or NAUI are offered.

Some of the nicest diving-sites:

  • the wrecks of the,’Silver Star’,’Stella Maru’ and ,’Hassan Mia’ in the north
  • cave-diving at, ‘Gunners Quoin’
  • shark-diving in the, ‘Shark Pit’
  • coral-diving at, ‘Gorgoni’
