Full description
On this 1-hour excursion, discover the underwater diversity of the Blue Bay Marine Park through the windows of a glass-bottom boat, and even closer with snorkeling gear. Your tour starts from the Blue Bay Public Beach in the southeast of Mauritius, where you’ll board the small but comfortable glass-bottom boat, through which you can take in the Marine Park’s 72 species of fish and 38 types of corals. This park is the biggest coral garden and marine life reserve in Mauritius, so you’ll be amazed at the abundance of life. Even sea turtles live in the Marine Park and have been known to be curious about the boats.   The highlight of your trip will be the chance to snorkel in these beautiful waters and discover the Marine Park on your own. Jump into the clear, turquoise waters and get up close and personal to the colorful fish, corals, and turtles. At the end of the journey, you’ll be returned to Blue Bay Public Beach.

Super snorkeling tour - the crew was very, very nice and went out with us as a couple. we had a lot of time to snorkel and were able to see a lot of fish up close. Booking was also very easy and it was a great trip!

The effort is not worth it to see a few fish and the devastation of coral death and to share the few coral sticks with a horde of stupid tourists who are unable to find their way around while snorkeling. It's a shame how the boats ruthlessly romp around in the so-called "Marine Park". We also missed the fact that you could wash / change afterwards.
