Swim with Dolphins

Immerse yourself in the adventure of a lifetime and swim with dolphins in crystal clear waters. You will get a unique chance to discover the lives of these magnificent marine mammals in their natural aquatic habitat. Swimming with dolphins is an incredibly moving experience which will bring you into contact with strikingly beautiful scenery, unspoiled landscapes and wonderful animals. You’ll plunge into the remarkable world of these marine mammals and come face to face with the dolphins.

Unlike many other dolphin facilities that limit a swim with dolphins program to pools or shallow water encounters, we provide the unique opportunity to enter the dolphins’ natural environment and enjoy an encounter with the dolphins in open sea. Once you get on board the speed boat, the skipper will brief you on the experience you are about to have and on the day itinerary. Then you will be off for two wonderful hours in the open sea with the dolphins.


 

Parasailing

Parasailing is the ideal excursion for those looking for a special sea-air activity. Parasailing offers you a breathtaking bird's eye view of the beautiful lagoon and beaches of Mauritius, making it one of the best things to do during your vacation in Mauritius. Mauritius Attractions offers you to enjoy parasailing in several different locations in Mauritius.

You can choose to experience water skiing in any of the following locations:
- Grand Baie (Mauritius North West)
- Flic en Flac (Mauritius South West)
- Trou D’eau Douce (Mauritius central East coast)
- Blue Bay (Mauritius South East)


 

Kitesurf

It is the Southern end of the West coast that offer the best Kite and windsurfing conditions. Beginners and confirmed kiters can enjoy the vastness of the La Prairie / Baie du Cap lagoon, providing a shallow and safe environment and allows downwind glides to Le Morne. (The lagoon of La Prairie is too shallow for windsurfing.)

The Le Morne spot is the winner of all spots of Mauritius. Due to the landscape that strongly boosts the prevailing South- Easterly winds in winter and due to a very specific and local thermal wind in summer, this spot offers ideal conditions 11 months a year (February being the exception.) The La Preneuse and Flic en Flac spots are adequate essentially for kiters of intermediary to confirmed levels and only when the wind is thermal, from the West or North-West, (i.e. mainly outside winter period.) They are good spots to start and sail downwind to Le Morne.


 

Catamaran

Catamaran trip in Mauritius is considered to be one of the best attractions in Mauritius. It is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable activities for visitors to Mauritius and a great experience to remember and cherish. You will get to discover the beauty of Mauritius Paradise Island, one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world with superb coral reefs, crystal clear water, beautiful lagoons, stunning unspoiled beaches and amazing underwater world.

Mauritius catamaran cruises make it easy and comfortable to visit beautiful regions of the island during your sea journey. It is also the best way to discover the beauty of Mauritius’ surrounding islands. As part of the catamaran cruise you will get to sail along the beaches, see the lagoons, enjoy the stops on the way to snorkel and discover the amazing marine world. Going on any of the catamaran cruises in Mauritius will allow you to widen the scope of exploring Mauritius, and will be a real gratifying experience for the body and the soul.


 

Blue Safari Submarine

Blue Safari Submarine is the only operator of real submarines in the Indian Ocean. At 35 metres depth, your dream comes true as you discover the magic of the marine life. You will enjoy a rare and unforgettable experience, travelling in total security and comfort, on board very sophisticated air-conditioned submarines. A unique adventure which should not be missed, whether you are 2 or 90 years old.

The adventure begins upon boarding the surface vessel “Betty of the Mascareignes”. It has two ultrasound phones on-board, which provide permanent communication with the submarine. During your 40-minutes dive, amongst multicoloured fish, you will discover the beauty of the corals and who knows what surprise awaits you. Our pilots, trained in marine biology, will guide you through your dive. Viewing the wreck of the “Star of Hope” and its numerous inhabitants, it is always a magical moment! During the descent, the colours change as the infra red rays of the light, are filtered out by the water. At 20 meters depth, red becomes brown, then violet at 30 meters. Yellow becomes green, then blue, after 30 meters. Blue is the dominant colour of the deepest part of your dive.


 

Big Game Fishing

Mauritius is renowned for being one of the best Big Game fishing destination worldwide. The sea drops to 70m (230ft) just 1 km (⅔ mile) from the coast, meaning that huge fish are there for the taking 15 minutes from the shore.

Its tropical waters are home to blue and black stripe marlin, sharks, tuna, sail fish, bonitos, Wahoo, Dorado and the bécune. The most popular season for international anglers is from September to March, but big game fishing is possible year round. Your experience will be unsurpassed and unique from any fishing excursion you have been on before.

Our Catch and release policy ensures that minimal impact is made to the precious marine ecosystems of Mauritius.


 

Blue Bay Marine Park

Found South East of Mauritius, the Blue Bay marine park is framed on one side by a couple of hotels and the runway of our international airport Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Airport. And sitting comfortably on top of the marine park is 'Ile des Deux Cocos', an islet within the lagoon, of 4.22 hectares.

An important and very unique network of coral reefs protect this part of the island from the oceanic waves. The oldest corals are found between 'Ile aux Deux Cocos' (where there is a hotel project at Naiade Resorts !!) and the coastline at a depth of 5.5 meters. And more than 50 different species of corals have been identified, out of which more than 80% are alive.

The Blue Bay marine park has been proclaimed in 1997 to slow down the constant degradation of the marine environment, a result of urbanisation and tourism development in the area. The Coast Guard at the Marine Park is unfortunately too relaxed and the number of boats at the park will sooner or later damage the corals. Entrance is free, though you have to pay for the snorkeling boat ride.
