MAURITIUS ISLAND DIVING HOLIDAYS
Diving Holidays To Mauritius
Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean, has a lot to offer as a dive destination. With direct flights from the UK and only a 3 hour time difference, it is very accessible. We would not classify Mauritius as a world-class dive destination such as the Maldives, Malaysia or the Pacific Islands but it is a superb holiday destination with some very nice diving for both beginner and more experienced divers.
A diving holiday to Mauritius is best suited to families or couples looking for an affordable luxury dive holiday in the Indian Ocean. We highly recommend combining your stay with a visit to some of the other islands, such as Rodriquez or Reunion. Planet Dive can easily combine a dive holiay to Mauritius with South Africa, Dubai or East Africa.

Diving Seasons In Mauritius
The best time period to dive Mauritius is during their summer from November to May (the opposite to our summer) when the prevalent strong winder winds have subsided and the air temperature is a palatable 28°C.
Being the Indian Ocean the water is lovely and warm so most divers just use a 3mm shortie or 3/2 long suit as a maximum.
Water temperatures range between 22°C in winter (5mm wetsuit) to 28°C in summer (3mm wetsuit). Average visibility is 20 to 25 metres.
