Take a 20-minute boat ride out to the underwater sea walk platform, where you’ll don an air fed helmet and undertake a 15-minute walk inside the coral reef on the ocean floor, allowing you to see the abundant and colourful sea life, flora and fauna of the seabed. The best part of it is, you will have an experienced guide with you every step of the way, making this a safe, but unforgettable adventure.
No prior knowledge of diving or even swimming is needed, as you’ll be walking along the seabed. The excursions begin in the centre of Grand Baie, where you’ll head out to a lagoon to the north of Mauritius. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you won’t even need to remove these, as the helmet goes over your head, with ample room inside.
Our Spin The excursions are suitable for ages 10 upwards, making this a great family-friendly activity. The tours operate between 9am and 2:30 pm and all you’ll need to bring is swimming gear and a towel. Prices start from around £30, or you can undertake a private tour at extra cost.
