One of the most recommended dive is the Coin de Mire Safari. Coin de Mire is a small island facing the North coast of Mauritius, surrounded by fabulous dive sites. The safari includes 2 dives of 45 to 60 minutes each (the longest you could get), a lunch break and the ride on the boat.
Around 9:00am, You will sail of, after a detailed morning briefing about the dives and the security. You will get back around 2:00pm. For your 2 dives, you will have the choice between a set of location, including famous “Djabeda” wreck (34m), where rays meet squids and baracudas. Also, the “Confetti” spot (4-20m), very colorful and rich in fishes and corals location, you will have the chance to meet sea turtles, anemones and clown fishes. For the landscape, “le Charpentier” will let you explore underwater canyons and caves. Finally, the “deep” “le Mur” (32m) is a renown spot where sea fans and other tropical corals are lying on the walls of the seafloor. After the 2 dives, time for lunch and a nice boat ride back to Pereybere.
The Coin de Mire safari is definitely a dive to try. The water visibility is perfect almost all year long and there are dive sites for all diving levels, from beginner to professional. The diving center recommends diving in Winter (between June and October), when you can encounter the majestic whales.
