Surfing in Mauritius is appreciated and enjoyed by majority tourists visiting the island. The ideal time to enjoy surfing in Mauritius is from the months of May to October. You can hire surf equipments from your beach resort or from boathouses at beachside. Worldly renowned for its waves during the surfing season (from June to September), Tamarin Bay is the ideal spot for surfing.   One can also surf on the south coast of the island, in Rivière des Galets, Blue Bay, Baie du Cap and Le Morne...            

In Mauritius, one can only do sea and not river kayaking and it is an ideal way to enjoy the view onto the coast without paddling too far from the lagoon.   As for the pedalo, it is available in almost all of the boathouses at beachside in Mauritius.   

Water-skiing is one of the most popular water sports amongst holidaymakers.  In Mauritius, one can only water ski on the sea.  Many hotels that have a water sports club, offer this activity free of charge to their guests.  The best water skiing spot is along the northern coast of the island as the stretch of lagoon is particularly calm over there.  Should you fancy water skiing, you can ask in one of the water sport clubs.

Scuba diving is a marvelous way to know more about the colorful world of under sea. Most of the hotels in Mauritius have professional dive trainers to guide tourists throughout the dive safari. Several specialized courses are also available for advanced divers to broaden the spectrum of scuba diving in Mauritius.

You can contemplate the beautiful corals and fish simply by leaning over the glass bottom of a glass bottom boat.  Should you wish to swim off the coast, you need to ask the skipper before doing so.
Most of the skippers even have the required equipment: mask, flippers and snorkels. 
Be careful: it is important to negotiate the price before setting out.  Price: Rs 300 or more per hour.       

A unique experience! Blue Safari is one of the unique operators in the world, proposing excursion dives by minus 35 metres in 6 and 10-seater submarines several times a day, seven days a week. Blue Safari now also proposes self-driven underwater scooters now known as “Subscooters”.
