At this point in our trip we were staying in Tamarin so it made sense to come down here to Le Morne and dive. Wow it did not disappoint!
We met our guide Ben on his first day of the job, who it turns out was on the same plane into Mauritius as us, at the ScubaCaribe dive center. Plan was to go as a group of four with a local divemaster showing us the way.
Taking a boat from the beach we made a 10min ride through the surf to the dive site. It amazes me how skippers find these sights just based on positioning between landmarks on the coast in the distance. Spot on. We geared up, did our checks then made our first sitting on side of boat falling backwards entry. Soon we were sinking with the ship coming into view below us.
By this dive we were feeling more confident in our skills and new dive computers. We decided to throw some underwater photography into the mix. Thanks to a friend who lent us the GoPro Sessions 5.
