    Departure Port : Port Louis
    Arrival Port : Zanzibar

    Ship : LE JACQUES CARTIER

    • Ref : X290321

    PONANT invites you on a new itinerary in the Indian Ocean. From Mauritius to Zanzibar through Reunion Island and Madagascar, take a 15-day cruise aboard Le Jacques-Cartier to enjoy beaches, diving and nautical activities, and to discover endemic fauna and flora as well as places of breathtaking natural beauty that few tourists visit.

    From Port Louis on the island of Mauritius, you will first sail to Reunion Island and its wonderful area of volcanic pitons and cirques, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Your ship will then set sail for Madagascar, the island continent. On the east coast first, Île Sainte-Marie, once a lair of pirates, has successfully retained its authentic and untouched character. On the west coast you will then discover Nosy Mitsio and its immaculate beaches, and Nosy Komba, also known as “lemur island”, home to large colonies of these small, agile primates.

    Le Jacques-Cartier will then join Mayotte. This small French archipelago protected by a double barrier reef is the refuge of an incredibly rich fauna: dolphins, rays, giant turtles, and the region’s last dugongs can be observed here.

    This fabulous trip will draw to an end in Zanzibar, a city with superb UNESCO-listed buildings, blending African, Arab, Indian and European influences over more than a millennium.

    Scuba diving

    Scuba diving

    Fauna and flora of the Indian Ocean

    The fauna of the Indian Ocean is very varied. During the various dives, divers can observe various species of benthic fauna such as napoleon fish, oriental sweetlips, blackspotted  sweetlips, batfish and pelagic fauna such as manta rays, gray reef sharks, dolphin fish,rainbow runner as well as endemic wildlife such as different soft corals.

    Supervision of the dives

    Your dives will be led by your PONANT instructor. He will take care of your safety and that all goes smoothly. On some diving sites, as in natural reserves or if the local regulations require it, a local guide will escort the diving.

    Level required for scuba diving on this cruise

    The minimum level required for scuba diving on this cruise is 1star CMAS or the PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent). The certification card, the diving log book and a recent medical certificate (less than 12 months) must be presented at the beginning of the cruise to our main diving instructor.

    Process of the dives (certified divers)

    The instructor can dive with 4 certified divers at a time. The instructor reserves the right to check divers’ ability for maximum safety. As we will dive in remote places, the dives will be done without decompression stop. A safety stop of 3 minutes at 5 metres will be mandatory. The depth that can be reached will depend on the certification of the divers:

    • For those with Padi Open Water Diver certificate (or equivalent), the maximum depth will be 20 meters.
    • For those with PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certificate (or equivalent), the maximum depth can be up to 25 metres.
    • If two PADI Advanced Open Water Divers (or equivalent) wish to dive together independently, they must have a briefing first. They must have dive computers and are allowed to go to a maximum depth of 20 metres.

    Process of the initiation dives (novice divers)

    Before your initiation dive, your instructor will show you the equipment and will explain to you how to communicate underwater using hand gestures and how to breathe through a regulator. Once in the water, equipped with your material, you will learn how to breathe through your regulator on the surface for a couple of minutes. When your instructor feels you are ready, he will immerse you in water for about 20 minutes to a depth of 6 metres maximum.

    Duration of the dives

    The diving activity lasts from 2 to 3 hours, which includes the journey to the diving site and the diving. This duration may vary according to the site, the level of divers, weather conditions and the number of participants. For experienced divers, the duration of dives varies between 35 and 60 minutes depending on the site, the diver’s experience and consumption.
