Mauritius Underwater Waterfall Helicopter Tour

Mauritius Underwater Waterfall



An Exclusive Helicopter Sightseeing Tour to Mauritius’ Underwater Waterfall – the best invitation to make your holiday experience magical! Just off the coast of Le Morne, on the island’s southwest, Mauritius offers a spectacular illusion.

Sand and silt deposits from the ocean floor run off in such a way that it appears as if they’re pouring down a waterfall – or as if the entire island is being sucked down a massive drain.

The dramatic image is really just the flow of underwater currents. The ocean water is beautiful from the shore, but this view requires a helicopter ride. Tours are designed specifically for this purpose.

This package is ideal for seeing some of the island’s most well-known attractions. Take in the beautiful scenery without wasting time stuck in traffic. Bring your loved ones and take a guided tour of the stunning North, South, or West coasts! You only need to select your ideal itinerary. The experienced pilot will make certain that you have the best time possible high in the clear blue sky. Aerial views of beautiful mountains, pristine coastlines, and turquoise lagoons.

A narrow waterfall falls over a cliff nearby, and the Black River Gorges National Park protects what remains of the island’s original rainforest. The Chamarel 7 Colored Earth, until the renowned Underwater Waterfall renders you speechless.
