Blue safari is also the unique leisure submarine operation in the world to operate 2 submarine of small sizes, maximum capacity being 10 seat, offering therefore a real personalized adventure not to be missed while being in Mauritius.

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.

Made just for two – sub scooters are a fun and unique way to drive along the sea bed of the the Indian Ocean.

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.

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

Extremely well organised and efficient. The underwater viewing was outstanding. I suppose this is what scuba divers see each time they go under ... kids were equally impressed.

Like most people we were a bit dubious about this. We did the sub-scotter trip as that sounds more fun that you can drive. The sub-scotter looks quite cartoony. And I still didn't quite understand how we can breath without a seal of the capsule. But it all works. You can lower into the water and the air is trap.... More

We booked this through our rep in our hotel but you can also book direct. You take a carrier boat to the submarine which takes about 5-10 minutes. You also have a photo opportunity as your getting into the submarine. Our captain was very good and explained everything and pointed out different marine life aswell. We saw turtles, a huge... More
