- Mauritius is home to some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs and diverse marine life
- Drive your own underwater scooter for the unique crystal-clear waters experience
Perfect for those who like unusual forms of travel, or anyone who wants to see the marine life of the Indian Ocean but can’t be bothered with all that swimming malarkey! Sit on this innovative “personal submarine”, your head and shoulders enclosed in a dry glass bubble, and dive to depths of up to 10m (32ft) with the aid of an electric motor. Pause whenever you want to take a closer look, or chug through the waters at a steady speed alongside shoals of colourful fish!
These underwater scooters are a revolution - safe for you, and the fish, they are non-polluting, you need no special training to ride them, and they carry all the breathing apparatus, so you don’t have to. On your half-hour submersion, accompanied by a PADI-qualified guide, expect to encounter clownfish, Mauritian scorpion fish, anemones, sponges and many other species - none of which should be the slightest bit disturbed to see you motoring on by! Best of all, your experience will be documented by a photographer so you can relive it back home.
