Exclusive Undersea Walk
Enjoy an exhilarating adventure in the shallow waters of Mauritius during a safe and super fun undersea walk on the ocean bed, exclusively organised for you. This is an absolute must-do for those who wish to discover the beauty of the underwater world, even those who can’t swim.
Since 1995, Aquaventure has been sharing this delightful experience with thousands of people, including non-swimmers who never thought they would ever have their head underwater and lots of children as from 8 years old. No former experience or training is required to enjoy this fantastic activity.
Undersea walking or helmet diving, as it is often called, is for many a feeling of achievement, a dream come true and of course, a whole lot of excitement and fun. It is often compared to walking on the moon!
The excursion begins with a short motorboat transfer from the famous Belle Mare beach to a platform anchored inside the splendid lagoon in front of Long Beach Hotel. After your briefing, you will be helped by the guide divers to enter the water up to your shoulders through an opening within the platform. This is when the helmet will be placed over your head. You will descend to 3-4 meters and begin the 15-20 minute undersea walk. The 30 kg panoramic diving helmet weighs no more than a conventional motorcycle helmet under water and keeps your head dry, thus enabling you to keep your glasses or contact lenses on during the trip. A pipe connected to the surface tank provides a regular flow of air into the helmet and allows you to breathe normally. Swimming is not at all involved in undersea walking; therefore the activity is open to all non-swimmers.
