Gerald, an experienced underwater photographer, has had some of his most memorable dives in Mauritius.
The waters here are teeming with shipwrecks, turtles, dolphins, and magnificent sperm whales.
Mauritius is situated on the Mascarene plateau and is surrounded by a protective barrier of coral reefs. The knowledgeable instructors at the dive centres in Blue Bay Marine Park can assist you in learning how to dive or accompany you to breathtaking islets, basalt tunnels, and wrecks like Stella Maru, which rests upright on the ocean floor.
With over 170 dive sites to explore, it is worth extending your stay and turning the Indian Ocean into your personal underwater playground.
