The solar underwater sea walk is a shallow water undersea tourist activity which uses solar energy. This is a once in a lifetime experience that you should definitely enjoy during your holidays here in Mauritius.

Discover the fascinating marine life, coral reefs, beautiful fauna and a large variety of different fish species by walking on the ocean bed (about 3-4m depth). Enjoy this safe adventure as you’ll be accompanied by qualified experienced guides along the course of the underwater sea walk.

You can take part in this adventurous activity even if you are a non swimmer. You’ll be equipped with a type of helmet that uses a “free flow” air supply, thus, air pumped from the surface will flow freely through a hose to the helmet constantly unlike self contained cylinders.

I just love it

April 5, 2019

This was the first time I had such a good experience walking under the sea. I was a bit afraid initially but the crew was friendly and very helpful. It all went so well and I had the unique chance to interact with loads of fish directly

Amazing Undersea Walk

March 23, 2019

I enjoyed walking undersea in the Indian Ocean most among all other attractions in Mauritius. Everything was well organised, not rushed and ran very smoothly. Once you are in Mauritius, don’t miss this amazing experience
