The crystal clear water, the abundance of fish life and colorful reefs provide magnificent backdrops for underwater filming and photography.
Mauritius, almost completely encircled by a barrier coral reef, is home to many sponges, sea anemones and a variety of multi-colored fish such as the Damselfis, Trumpet, Boxfish not forgetting the playful clown, as well as Mauritian scorpion with its unique orange color.
