Beautiful beaches and great lunch. Going around by speedboat was good because it offered the best opportunity to see more (as compared to a catamaran) although space is tighter. Snorkeling was a bit ordinary which is probably true over most of Mauritius. Lunch was generous and delicious, really enjoyed that as you have lunch along the beach. Our guide, Hans, was great as well. A bit on the expensive side but everything pretty much is in Mauritius.

Simply amazing.

Excellent tour, highly recommend. We were only six people onboard and it was spectacular: Chrystal clear water and possibility to swim/snorkel in a skyblue lagoon, plenty to see, nice weather and also the speedboat was superb. The staff was very professional and friendly, they also made it sure that you always had a chilled drink in your hand. It was also super nice that it was possible to really talk with people and change some thoughts. This tour was really worth all that time and money. Couldn't ask for more.

Great exploration of the southeast coast. Guides, Boat and Drink/Meal were great! We had luck, the weather was perfect and the snorkelling and dining at the Beach were fantastic. If you are in the near of Mahébourg and want to do a boattrip, We can only recommand to book it here. Thanks for the great day Nelson, Laura! Best regards Julia, Stephan
