Each submarine can dive to 35 metres where the views under the warm Indian Ocean are filled with colourful fish, coral, crab and stingray. Look out of the windows and experience the natural beauty in complete safety while the knowledgeable pilot points out interesting things to see. Choose between the larger BS1100 and the small-party BS600 for the experience to suit you. Both of them will give you a rare life-time adventure not to be missed in Mauritius.

We bought the tickets for Submarine Dive (at 10.30 on Fridey 17March) 3 days ahead and they charged us full upon booking. Then one day before the tour, they informed us that due to weather - they had to delay our tour until 13.30. To make sure that we could go on the tour, we came at 10.05 today to... More

This was our second experience and it lived up to all our expectations. From an on time pick up at our hotel everything was very well arranged and Samuel the submarine captain was very informative during the dive. We were given a good safety briefing and because of a very heavy rain shower they delayed our transfer onto the boarding... More

As a scuba diver I'm not impressed and in all honesty diving is more fun where you can see and interact more with aquatic life. There was a little sense of an adventure in the blue safari yet it could be better if the diving location was more attractive.

Thank you for your review. It’s quite difficult to compare diving and submarine trip because it’s really not the same thing. Sincerely yours. More

This is a true life time experience. Never been on a submarine before. My family truly enjoyed the journey undersea. Very safe. Don't know about people with sea sickness issues. But should give it a try. Its beautiful down there.

My wife & I recently visited Mauritius & had the opportunity to go in the sub-marine with Blue Safari tours. What a wonderful experience. Very unique & worth the visit. The staff from the office ,to the boat crew were all very attentive & friendly. Well worth a visit.

Amazing once in a life time experience to go under the sea around 35m depth. Very safe journey experience. Too good people to guide you. Bit costly, but one should never miss it out.

We were very excited when we booked the submarine as weren't sure if we would be able to undertake the scuba diving. Overall was disappointed as the marine life is very poor and what you actually get to see is nothing compared to the marketing undertaken by the blue safari submarine guys. The marine life was awsum when we did... More

We are really sorry that you didn’t appreciate the attraction. It’s a lifetime memory for most of people and often the only way to experience a submarine’s dive. Also they appreciate the submarine because it’s a unique way to dive at 35 meters depth safe and dry, at any age. Faithfully yours. More

Visited here whilst on holiday and tbh I would give this zero stars if possible. Went on the submarine trip if that's what u can call what we were taken down in, personally I would call it a rustled tin can with questionable safety standards. The view out of the sub is terrible as the windows are so low and... More

Our submarine is in perfect condition and is subject to a regular maintenance and certification. Without them, like airplanes, we would be allowed to operate, and most importantly we wouldn’t have operated as safety of our clients and crew is the most important for us. You can actually be impressed by its size, as it is a small tourist submarine,... More
