Mauritius has one of the most abundant marine life of the Indian Ocean.  The moderate tropical sea temperature is ideal for the flourishing of the fauna and flora. It is not surprising at all that there is about four hundred and thirty different species of underwater creatures, including fish such as Parrot fish, Groupers, Napoleons, Sweet-lips, Angels, Trumpet, the clown fish, moray eels and lobsters.

More than two hundred different species of corals have been recorded by marine biologists. There is also a good number of sponges and sea anemones.

Mauritius: The Best Seasons for Snorkeling

Situated above the tropic of Capricorn, Mauritius enjoys a purely tropical climate. The water temperature averages the twenty-eight degrees Celsius in summer and twenty-one degrees Celsius in winter. The water temperature is therefore ideal for snorkeling throughout the year, even though summer months are considered the best.

In summer, warm water attracts an abundance of migrating fish. Marine plants also flourish during this season due to the availability of plenty of sunlight. During the summer season we can easily observe a wide variety of exotic fish due to the fact that reproduction occurs mainly during this period of time.

Mauritius: Best sites for snorkeling

There are many snorkeling sites scattered throughout the island. Beginners can easily learn to snorkel in the calm and shallow water of the lagoon. While experienced snorkelers can proceed directly to Snorkeling sites which are more adventurous such as caves, cliffs, wrecks, pinnacles and reefs. The most popular sites in Mauritius include “Colorado” and “Roche Zozo” outside Blue Bay on the south coast of Mauritius among others.
