Here's a way to explore the sandy seabed of Mauritius on foot! The Solar Undersea Walk takes you to the bottom of the ocean with a helmet that lets you breathe, see through distortion-free panels, and keep both your hair and glasses (if you wear a pair!) dry. Descend three to four meters deep into the water, where a guide will take you around the lively underwater neighborhood. Meet and greet the resident fish, in all colors and stripes, and rub shoulders with the vibrant coral, as a constant flow of fresh air supplies your oxygen helmet. Because you'll be walking, no swimming knowledge is at all required. Trivia: over 50% of the operator's clients have been non-swimmers!

Excellent experience and simply fabulous. Highly recommended but be prepared for a bit of earache in the first 2-3 min under water. Worth putting up with this for what you will see and experience. Changing facilities on board are a bit limited and small so it is better to go ready.
My husband and I had a great experience. We definitely recommend underwater sea walking with Solar under sea walk found in Grand Baie on royal road. The only disappointment we had was the cost of the video (1500 Mauritian rupees)!
This was an amzing experience to be walk around the ocean bed and inbetween the marine life. Feeding the fish was a very enjoyable experience. The sound of the water, the temperature of the water, the colour, is all so calming. the staff are well experienced andf made the experience a highly memorable one.
