Discover Under-water wildlife Mauritius

Each coral reef shelters a myriad of multicoloured fish; if you want to see them, just put on your flippers, mask and snorkel. You find yourself swimming in the midst of a multitude of fish, as if in an aquarium where clown fish and damselfish endlessly brush past the anemones protection against predators. On the slopes of the coral reef, on the ocean side, divers will get close to the "big game": sharks, dolphins, tuna fish and marlin.
