About the Activity - Encounter with the Sharks at Odysseo - Oceanarium

Have you ever wished to get close to sharks in a safe space without the need to dive deep in the mysterious ocean? Well, Deals.mu has an exciting offer for you at the one and only Oceanarium in the Indian Ocean- a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come close to sharks in a massive outdoor pool!

Put aside all the fear and dive in an ocean of wonder at Odysseo for an exhilarating encounter with the notorious creatures. Allow yourself to swim freely and connect with the gracious sharks on a whole different level. At first you might get chills, but as you expand your knowledge on them, you will discover a new side to these misunderstood animals.

What to Expect?

Encounter with the Sharks at Odysseo - Oceanarium - The Experience

  • Odysseo is the first oceanarium in Mauritius and in the Indian Ocean. With its 5500 m2 of visiting domains, the oceanarium showcases some 45 different aquatic habitats comfortably hosted in 2000m3 of pristine water. Visitors will encounter some 200 species (3,500 specimens at the opening) of the Indian Ocean.
  • Begin this enthralling journey at Odysseo with a cooling welcome drink, followed by a security briefing by the expert team on the activity. Then, gear up and get ready for this surreal experience.
  • In these 90 minutes of a guided encounter with the sharks, immerse yourself in the stunning outdoor pool, home to the impressive cartilaginous fish - the Zebra Shark. This is a dream come true for those fascinated by the existence of aquatic creatures, seeking an adrenaline-filled, immersive experience. They can be approached very closely if you are respectful.
  • Get ready for a wave of emotions as you swim with the marvellous sharks, and observe them from up close- their behaviour, their elegant way of moving around the pristine water, among other amazing habits.
  • During this activity, you will be given insights on these misunderstood animals; how they feel threatened, ways to make them feel safe and protect them. Harmless to humans, Zebra sharks are in danger of extinction due to being fished for their meat. As much as they might be scary, they are, after all, just trying to survive.
  • Once your shark experience is over, you don’t need to rush back home since you also get access to visit the Oceanarium. Odysseo has a lot more to discover, classified in different zones, including the Lagoon, mangroves & beaches, Inland, The Coral Reef, The Open Sea, The invertebrates’ world and the Sub Oceanic View.Each zone is dedicated to specific categories of marine life, with info panels that provide more details to self-educate
  • This unique Oceanarium awaits you with amazing panoramic views, bright, vivid aquatic fauna and flora, set in a fantastic replica of the ocean. So, make sure to click as many pictures as possible so you can revisit these beautiful memories whenever you wish to.
