Wetsuits ?

OK...this might seem a stupid question but for a family that are used to summer holidays in the Scilly Isles this is a serious question (!). We're going over for a holiday in 2 weeks time and want to try a lot of the watersports. Should we need wetsuits or is the water warm enough ?

ps I'm guessing the 'lions and cheetahs' trip is a must for an animal loving 7 year old ?!

Hi there

You most certainly won't need wetsuits for normal everyday watersports. The sea is wonderfully warm. I hate cold water and never venture into the sea (or our swimming pool) in Cape Town, but I couldn't keep out of the water in Maurtius. Spent hours snorkelling on the reefs and never ever felt cold.

Have a fabulous holiday. We booked this week for our second trip in April next year. I can't wait!!!!!

Normally the water is warm here in Mauritius

With regards to Lions Trips:-

if you want to do observation then that is open to all, but the Interaction and walk with lions as you said you are 7 yrs old so so your height must 1 m30 for cheetahs and 1m50 for lions not less than that

If ever you are less then only the staff of safari adventures can authorize visitors of less then 1m 50

No wetsuits required unless you wish to do diving and then the dive operator will provide it.

You can do snorkling and its worth bringing your own snorkel and mask.
