About
Aquaventure is the first company to have introduced Undersea Walk on the East Coast - Belle Mare in 1995. The valuable experience gained during these years has made Aquaventure one of the safest, most reliable, most customer driven and the most environmental friendly organizations on the island. Being the pioneer in the region, Aquaventure has had the leading advantage of selecting the best and most spectacular underwater spots, combining ideal conditions such as: calm sea, clear water, excellent visibility and a rich and colorful marine life. The Undersea Walk Aquaventure Ltd has since 1995 overwhelmed thousands of people including absolute non-swimmers, people who never thought they would have their head under water and lots and lots of children, amongst others. No former experience or training is required. Undersea Walk for many is a feeling of achievement, another first step, a dream come true, a whole lot of excitement and fun. The guided trip under water lasts around 15 - 20 minutes in the beautiful Long Beach lagoon of Belle Mare at 3 - 4 meters depth.

We did this morning adventure whilst on honeymoon just up the coast at Lux Belle Mare.
It was extremely easy to book through the Lux and we were picked up at the hotel at the arranged time by Aquaventure.
We were away for about three hours in total and did the walk with two other couples which lasts about 20 minutes on the sea bed. You go about 3-4m deep max.
We had a very detailed and fun safety instruction class from the team leader who was a really great guy. Make no mistake the team of four really know what they are doing and we felt extremely comfortable during the whole trip.
We went out on a boat to a platform and went to the sea bed down one by one, I kept my glasses on and you don’t even get your face wet. I am neither confident in water nor a good swimmer & it was a huge test for me.....I loved every minute of it.
You’re accompanied at all times, they take photos & video which you can have transferred by email afterwards. All the costs were very reasonable and in our opinion great value for what we now have as a memento.
We can’t recommend this company and their underwater experience highly enough, don’t dither, just book it and have a wonderful memory.

We booked the underwater seawalk and also parasailing. Bilal and Jordan were lovely, professional and made sure we were comfortable - they took the time to explain the activities and were always on hand.

The underwater seawalk was amazing and Jordan was great at guiding us and making us feel comfortable. The parasailing was also great however, it did not last as long as we would have liked - it lasted only for maybe 5 minutes but it would have been nicer if it was longer.

What an amazing experience! Idyllic setting, fun but safety conscious staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. They instantly new I was nervous and led me by the hand to make sure I got everything out of the experience. When it was all over, I wanted to do it again! Don't forget to take a bread roll from breakfast with you. The fish love it! Take 2 and you can make friends. The video and pictures are brilliant.

We had got married and had our honeymoon in Mauritius. My wife can’t scuba and so we thought we would try the undersea walk. We were picked up by Berty who was very informative and taken to a boat where we were taken out to the platform.
The team explained (in good English) the procedure and a safety talk, I was wearing contact lenses which was no problem. We then put on the ‘fishtank helmets’ and walked down the wide ladder to the bottom of the sea (our heads were probably about 3 metres underwater).
The team let us feed the colourful fish and took pictures and video of us (I also had my underwater camera to take pictures). The underwater experience lasted about 15 minutes but seemed to be enough time.
On return to their office you have the opportunity to buy the pictures and video package which we thought was a reasonable price.
So overall we thought it was a good experience (although not as good as scuba diving) and would recommend it as a good experience while in Mauritius.

My girlfriend and I decided to give this a go whilst looking at different things to do in Mauritius. I am glad we did as this was one of the highlights of our trip.

We arranged to be collected from the boat house at our resort in Long Beach. We were collected early by boat and taken out to the location where we met the rest of the crew/instructors. The entire team were great, especially the lead instructor who explained everything exceptionally well from procedures and what to expect. He put everyone at total ease. Once everything was explained we were kitted up and went down to the ocean floor. The experience of walking around down there is totally unforgettable!

Whilst we were down there, the instructor took pictures and video of us which we were able to collect for a small amount from the office when we returned. They are brilliant memories and great to look back at.

From start to finish it was an amazing experience which we both thoroughly enjoyed.

Whilst I have read some reviews where it has been said that tickets had been purchased through third party sites etc, we paid for our trip via our tour operator, which was much cheaper than prices some have quoted on here and exactly what would have been paid if you just book through Aquaventure direct. So my advice would be to contact directly for the best deal or just book through their website.

The day we went was slightly cloudy. Whilst it was still warm and you get used to the water temperature, the boat ride back can be a bit chilly so take a towel or something to wrap up in!

Overall, this was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to any one!

We had a driver took us from the Hotel (Trou d’Eau Douce), to the place. We got briefing and went to the boat and place of adventure. The whole experience was nice. Little bit longer since we were not there alone for the trip, group of other 6 or 8 people were with us together, so the briefing took longer time. I would recommend to take a longer break between this adventure and potential other trip.
The whole experience was nice. Setting of the helmet was easy and smooth. No big pressure. U can use helmet with glasses or contact lenses on, u can also put ur hand through the hole n pinch ur nose for pressure release or anything else. Good for non divers as well. Completely safe. The diver will show u some sea fish n let u touch them. Also there is bread provided so the fish will come to u n eat from u.

They send us our pictures and videos through email, where you just download some sort of App, download all pictures and after you download, to delete the App again.
No USB or disc was available.

We did not get any instructions but some of them we could figure out.
U need to take with u protective shoes, towels, swimwear or skin suit, clothes so ur legs are open when u enter the boat from the beach, water, cameras etc.

Generally we had nice experience n amazing memory and pictures. We were living by Trou d’Eau Douce so the whole way to the place from our hotel was about 20mins.
Recommending if you dont want to travel long time to the place which is in Belle Mare.

We thank the team, recommendation for sure

We booked this trip through our rep at the hotel. We are so glad we booked it as it was such a good experience and all the staff were so friendly and very helpful. Myself and my husband were a bit nervous about doing it, but Bill and all the staff put us at ease and luckily we went first.
Defiantly a must if you visit Mauritius

During our stay in Mauritius, my sister and I decided to try the undersea walk. I was initially anxious since I did not know how to swim, however I was assured by the crew that I did not need any swimming skills to be able to take part. The crew was extremely friendly and accommodating. They made my sister and I feel safe and relaxed. They were fun and professional as well. It was really mind blowing to walk under the sea and interact with the creatures that live there. Aside the beautiful view and how fun it was, the hospitable reception we received made the entire experience perfect.
This is definitely an experience I would never forget!
