Mauritius is ringed by dive sites but some of the best diving in Mauritius is found along the north western coast. The reef consists of a rock base covered in hard and soft coral species. Mauritius has a lot to offer for a diving holiday in the Indian Ocean, and with direct flights from the UK plus only a 3 hour time difference, it is very accessible.

Why You'll love Diving in Mauritius !

  • Direct flights from the UK and only a 3 hour time difference makes it very accessible
  • Good diving conditions for both beginner and more experienced divers
  • A good variety of dive sites, such as wrecks and drift dives

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 Rodriques or Reunion. Planet Dive can easily combine a dive holiay to Mauritius with South Africa, Dubai or East Africa.
