Diving in Mauritius
If you are a very keen diver you'll have gathered from your research that diving in Mauritius may not be in the same league as the Egyptian Red Sea, Australia's Great Barrier Reef or diving around Polynesia but does offer great diving with the added benefit of luxurious resorts on dry land. Diving in Mauritius is year round although the best months are November through to March when the water temperature is warmer and visibility is at its best. It is also worth remembering that the west coast is generally warmer in the water and on dry land than the east coast. Water temperatures vary throughout the year between 22C to 28C. All of our Mauritius hotels offer excellent PADI dive centres.
Snorkelling in Mauritius
With warm, safe waters Mauritius offers good opportunities for snorkelling. Whilst all of the Beachcomber hotels in Mauritius offer free snorkelling trips for guests, we still do recommend you take your own equipment. For the best snorkelling spots have a chat with the dive team as they will be able to give you an insiders guide to the best spots.
