Blue Bay received the status of ‘Marine Park' as an attempt by the government to protect the lush underwater foliage and corals from the encroaching developments. Besides a decree barring the indulgence in any high-speed watercraft, the conservation plans are quite relenting with other water sports such as snorkeling. However, the local environmentalists believe that the bleaching of the corals is inexorable. This is the best spot in all of Mauritius for snorkeling.
Though Blue Bay Marine Park offers no official tours, you can easily explore most of its protected coral patches through snorkeling on your own. For those who hate to get their feet wet though, you can witness the underwater sea life through a boat with a glass bottom.
