The westcoast of Mauritius is a region with a variety of interesting dive spots, with water temperatures ranging from 22 Celsius in winter (5mm wetsuit) to 28 Celsius in summer (3mm wetsuit). Average visibility: 20 to 25 metres. There is no typical 'diving season'. Beautiful conditions exist all year round but the visibility can, of course, be affected by waves, plankton, tides or rain.

A unique experience is the sight of DOLPHINS in the southwest! All year, in the Le Morne Region, one can admire these fascinating creatures in their natural environment.

Not to miss: the famous PASSE ST.JACQUES-dive in Le Morne: Whitefinsharks, Grey reefsharks, Bullsharks, Eaglerays and Stingrays

Mauritius is not only on land, but also under water a real garden of eden. Clear turquoise seas, an abundance of live coral reefs and beautiful tropical fish.

Non diving partners will be happy about all the other activities and excursion possibilities in Mauritius.
