Tips for a successful Scubadoo dive.
- >> Unlike sea surface boat tour, underwater activities are very sensible to changes in sea condition such as strong currents, winds, waves or poor visibility. Under any one of these circumstances we will automatically re-schedule the dive. If you want to experience Scuba-Doo dive, better plan it at the beginning of your holiday in Mauritius, at the earliest diving time. If weather conditions are not favourable on your preferred day you will still have time to re-schedule it for later.
- >>In Mauritius, the higher the sun climbs in the sky, more windy it will be; consequently more choppy will be the sea. As a rule of thumb, the best time for a successful scubadoo dive is the earliest possible during the day!
Our first diving sessions starts at 9h00 and sometimes earlier if necessary and continues hourly.
If sea temperature for morning dive is a matter of concern, be aware that in summer, the sun rises at around 5h00 AM and at 9h00 the sea is at bearable temperature. Diving costumes are also available on demand at not cost at the diving centre.
Probability for a successful scubadoo dive per morning hours is as follows:-
09h00 or earlier– 98%
10h00 or later– 60 %
11h00 or later – 10% or less
For the first dive slot (9h00), participants need to reach the diving center at 8h30.
It is not advisable to choose afternoon diving sessions for they can be done ONLY under excellent, exceptional weather condition, winter and summer alike.
