The Blue Water Diving Centre

Hugues Vitry founded Blue Water Diving Centre in 1987 when he came back to his motherland with his diving instructor's diploma in hand.

The dive centre is located on the North-Western coast of Mauritius, on the coastal road, between the small fisherman and touristic town of Trou aux Biches (the doe pond) and Mon Choisi.

Taxi drivers will take you there easily.

Le Blue Water Diving Center


Why the North-West coast of Mauritius?

It is the region of Mauritius with best sea conditions and amazing underwater life. Indeed, the South East monsoon wind blows non stop from May to end of October and the western and north western coast are on the leeward side and thus not exposed to bad weather and heavy seas. This situation allows the growth of soft corals and most fragile corals in calm and warm sea conditions of an unexposed coastline.

The fish and coral life are abundant and this location is also within sailing distance to the remote northern islands with exhilarating dive sites.
