Default Fog in the Indian Ocean

I'm wondering if anyone knows about marine layers forming in the western Indian Ocean, specifically around Mauritius and St. Brandon's Atoll. I can't really find any information online about it, whether or not a thick layer of fog can ever develop in this region, even in rare cases.
Thanks for the help.

I remember being in Los Frailes, near Cabo San Lucas , in a pea soup fog. A cruise ship called up on VHF, asking where all this fog that people were talking about , was.

I've never come across fog in the Indian in four crossings; but a friend had a very weird met experience of passing through a line of heavy cumulus with extremely bright shafts of light between the clouds.
Never visited the Cargados, but Rodrigues used to be a great stop; hope it still is...
