H2O competition

Underwater photography has the power to raise awareness about the beauty and fragility of our oceans and marine life. By capturing stunning images of underwater ecosystems, photographers can inspire people to care about and protect these important natural resources. Through their work, underwater photographers can also highlight environmental issues such as pollution, overfishing, and habitat destruction, and encourage action to address these challenges. Ultimately, the power of underwater photography lies in its ability to connect people to the underwater world and inspire a sense of stewardship for our oceans.


H2O is our underwater photography and video competition organized yearly by Sundivers Ltd and Gerald Rambert.

The planned dates of the event this year will be from the 25th to the 28th of November 2023.


No competition, No progress…

The goal of this event is to share and learn everything there is to know about underwater photography and the diversity of the island.Since the last editions, the level and quality of Mauritian underwater photographers have significantly improved, thus enhancing the content published on social media and magazines.We are also all looking forward to raising the awareness of the public towards conservation and protection of the environment by showing them what is left to see in our Mauritian water.
