You don’t even need to be able to swim. The helmets are fed fresh air from solar-powered electric compressors. 16 Scoot around in a Subscooter: Share the experience of riding below the waves in a Subscooter with your partner and discover the marine flora and fauna of Mauritius.

Starting with a 25- minute flight up to 3,000 metres for aerial sightseeing across the island’s north, it’s then time for a tandem jump with an experienced instructor for a heart-racing one- minute freefall until the parachute opens for a five-minute descent. 18 Flyn’Dive: Soar and swoop over the waves on a jet of water at Grand Baie, with no prior experience. A certified and experienced instructor explains how it works during a full safety briefing you strap into the Flyn’Dive-Board and a swim vest. The Flyn’Dive board is connected to a powerful water pump by a hose, creating a water jet that will lift you softly or send you soaring into the air. 56 20 Tea tasting 19 Helicopter Tours: A helicopter ride from the SSR International Airport offers an incredible way to view Mauritius’s spectacular diversity of landscapes, from deep meandering valleys to mountains, natural reserves and the stunning lagoon that encircles the island. 20 Tea tasting: Discover the history of tea in Mauritius at Bois Chéri, the island’s biggest tea producer that has been operating since 1892 and produces a range of flavoured teas, green teas and herbal teas.
