Stella Maru is a former Japanese trawler that was sunk on purpose in 1987 to create an artificial reef. The 42-meter long ship, which remains in great condition, now lies upright on the sandy bottom next to a rocky reef and it’s partially covered in algae, corals, anemones, and sea urchins.

Giant moray eels, parrotfish, lionfish, anglerfish, mackerels, leaf fish, stonefish, and scorpionfish are just some of the creatures you can see around the shipwreck.

Stella Maru is found at a depth of about 27 meters/88 feet and can be dived by advanced divers. diving is possible year-round; the water temperature ranges between 20°-28° C/62°-82° F. Underwater visibility is good, and the currents are mild. Good spot for underwater photographers!

Captain Mimi's Diving Center

Email: johnny@captain-mimi.com Telephone: (+230) 5985 5455

          La plongée à l'ìle Maurice est possible toute l'année. La meilleure saison est durant l'été austral, de novembre à avril. La température de l'eau peut atteindre 29 degrés. En hiver, l'eau se rafraîchit notablement et peut avoisiner les 20 degrés, la mer est souvent plus agitée et la visibilité moins bonne. Dans notre centre, nous pratiquons la plongée depuis plus de 25 ans. L'expérience acquise durant ces années nous a procuré de nombreuses aptitudes et connaissances du milieu sous-marin. C'est notre père Louis Anselme Alexandre plus connu sous le nom de "Capitaine Mimi" qui nous a initié à la plongée. Il a été le premier à l'île Maurice à emmener des gens en mer pour faire de la plongée. C'était en 1952 pour la Royal Navy! Depuis lors, il a répertorié les nombreux sites de plongées, plus beaux les uns que les autres. C'est aussi lui qui a coordonné le projet du Mauritius Underwater Group (MUG) de saborder la première épave pour en faire un récif artificiel. Le bateau, nommé Water Lilly, fut sabordé le 30 août 1980, au large de Trou aux Biches par 25 mètres de profondeur.
