The possibilities of excursions
in Mauritius are now varied; especially as far as sea sports
and activities are concerned. There is today a wider choice
of sports activities and nautical excursions such as dives
in submarines or on "Subscooters,"
Same applies to the land sports and excursions with more offers
biking and Mountain
riding and more original activities such as Zip-lines
occurring in wonderful settings.
The assets of Mauritius in terms of sports activities
remain nonetheless in the nautical activities, nearly
all beach hotels having at the disposal of residents windsurfs,
dinghies, pedal-boats and a power-boat of water-skiing.
Contrarily to the land excursions, we notice a slight
slackening among the operators of nautical excursions. It's
good news in a way as it's a form of shake-out, indirectly uplifting
the quality of such excursions that, like for day-cruising
in yachts, where an over-exploitation automatically takes
part of the fun away.
The local authorities are progressively fine-tuning the regulations
concerning these activities, namely as regards to the observation
of dolphins, an over-exploited non-ecologic activity which
we do not support, except if carried-out in Kayaks or other
About the Regions
Typically, the East, West and North coasts are all suitable
for nautical excursions taking place inside the lagoons
and the North and West coasts are more appropriate of nautical
excursions in the open sea. The choice for inland excursions
is wider in the western part of Mauritius.
