Well, you have been to all the possible locations to enjoy water sports. But Mauritius could hardly have been on your list. Try this destination out, and realise what you have been missing.



Although not really touching the waters, parasailing offers you the tiny view of the beautiful lagoons in Mauritius. An average parasailing flight takes about 5 to 15 minutes, but that depends on the place. With parasailing, you will simply forget other things and be enamoured by the vast blue ocean. The good thing about parasailing is that you can enjoy it even without having any swimming skills. If you plan to take a camera with you, remember to strap it well. A little bit of negligence and you will lose all the beautiful memories deep down the ocean.


Deep sea fishing

Well, for fisherman it is an obligation rather than an activity of fun. Anyway deep sea fishing has an adventurous side to it. It is an art. Therefore you can easily call it a water sport. Unlike any other water sport, deep sea fishing will feed you. You can hand over your catch to the kitchen of wherever you are staying such as the InterContinental Mauritius Resort Balaclava Fort, and savour Mauritius delicacy. The next best thing is that you get an opportunity to talk to the professionals of the field: fishermen. They will enlighten you about the fishing equipment and the art of reaching your target.


Blue Safari Submarine ride

This is the perfect way to get in touch with waters without becoming wet. The submarine will take you to the corals and the famous shipwreck called Star Hope. If you are staying at one of the Mauritius luxury resorts have transport arranged to reach Trou Aux Biches & Mont Choisy where the submarine awaits your arrival.


Cave sea kayaking

Actually kayaking is a lot easier done than thought. If you are into exploring, take a kayak and explore the mysterious islands and caves in Mauritius. Kayaks are available as single and double. Without a crowd, you can take time to explore hidden parts of the islands in leisure thanks to cave sea kayaking. Here again you don't need to have swimming skills.
But remember to carry a pair of clothes, towels and sunscreen. If you are not familiar with kayaking, there are classes available.


Water skiing

It requires professional training. But once you are trained enough, water skiing will give you a thrilling experience. With proper training, you will be able to float over the waters. You need to learn the art of standing up right on skis holding the tow rope. Remember waters have to be calm for you to enjoy water skiing. Professional training is a must before experimenting.



You need to be familiar with the surfboard, controlling its speed, acceleration and the direction. Once you are trained properly, this is another thrilling water sport. Windsurfing courses are available for short durations. If you are concerned about working out, windsurfing's ability to burn calories is amazing. Remember to warm yourself before hitting the waters. The bigger the board, the easier it is to surf. For windsurfing in Mauritius, the best period is between December and April.
