As one of the most secluded paradises in Africa, this island nation has much more to offer to the world. Mauritius is 1200 miles away from the African continent in the waters of the Indian Ocean. When you visit this wonder of nature, here are the things in which you should indulge yourself.

Known for:

  • Boating
  • Fishing
  • Surfing
  • Extreme sports
  • Ziplining
  • Hiking
  • Nature watching
  • Betting and gambling
  • Exploration of culture and religion

Now, being an island nation, you would expect Mauritius to offer some unprecedented fun with water sports and activities. It surely does that, and boat rentals are quite an easy, adventurous and family-friendly way of enjoying the waters of the Indian Ocean.

Don’t be under the impression that Mauritius is all about water sports and activities. In fact, some of the best places on the island other than beaches are as follows.

That’s just a few of the places from hundreds that you can visit to see the non-water side of Mauritius. However, water activities and fun are unlimited here. With boat rentals, you can sit with your family as you cruise through the shining waters of the ocean exploring the beautiful marvels of Mauritius. When it comes to boating rentals and pleasing your eyes with Mauritian beauty from the waters, here are a few things you can do.

Whale Watching

The places where you can watch whales are rare in this world. Boat rentals in Mauritius can make your whale watching dream come true. These affordable trips bring you closer to the largest mammal of the world and often last for up to 3 hours.

Deep Sea Fishing

Often referred to as big game fishing in Mauritius, you can spend a whole day in the sea catching fish. There are half day tours as well, but it is always recommended to have a professional guide on the side if you want to catch fish. You can go for boat rentals on your own or be a part of the shared tours too.

Flying on the Sea

This new activity is both, adventurous and unique. You hop on a fly board and fly in the air without wings. It’s the pressure of water from beneath the board that lets you levitate in the air. It is up to you to pick a spot for enjoying your first solo flight on the ocean, and a boat will carry you to that spot. You will always be guided by professionals before you take on this challenge, and you can also use the online guides to fly on the sea like Iron Man.

Water Skiing

Water fun is never over in Mauritius, and one of the best ways to remember Mauritius forever is water skiing. A boat takes you to the spot where you can have your first water skiing experience, and then a boat will pull you as you ski on the surface of Indian Ocean.

If you are planning your visit to Mauritius, read this boating guide and be sure to return with some great memories and pictures of you doing some adventurous stuff.
