Hello,

I did it, its really a memorable experience... I did not find it risky or dangerous. Guys bringing you down are really professionals, he could stay underwater up to 3 minutes without oxygen !

Although friend accompanying me couldn't get into water out of sheer fear !

Must try..

Some friends of mine have done it and they really liked it, great experience to walk on the seabed with the sea creatures all around, yeah it is perfectly safe, you have to wear a clear helmet that feeds you oxygen and there are the guides and everything.
Did you know that Mauritius is the only place in the Indian Ocean that offers undersea walking? :)

I haven't done it but it looks fun though. This is on my things-to-do list for the next time I come to Mauritius as well as the blue safari scooter thing.

I'm pretty sure it's quite safe, otherwise it would have been banned. I've read a few travellers' review on it and they said they had a great time :)
