We really enjoyed the excursion. Before all the boats, we arrived first on Gabriel Island and were able to take photos and sunbathe there. We then had a barbecue on the boat and then crossed over to Flat Island, which is across from Gabriel Island. Flat Island has a beautiful lagoon for swimming and the beach is gorgeous too. Overall, we thought Flat Island was nicer and would have loved to have stayed longer. Finally, a snorkeling stop was made in front of the rocky island of Coin de Mire. It is best to pack a thin jacket for the catamaran crossing, which can also get wet because it can get wet in strong waves :-) We would also only recommend the tour for people who have no problems with seasickness etc. have, because the swell should not be underestimated. The guides took great care of us and provided good music and a good atmosphere.

The tour was excellent. The guides were friendly and helpful. The locations we were taken to were wonderful and the guides ensured we got good snorkelling. We noticed too that our tour left earliest and got back to harbour latest, meaning we were out for the longest. The bbq lunch was incredibly generous and genuinely delicious. Our only feedback would be a recommendation to wear swim shoes as the beaches have a lot of loose coral on them, and a sign on the beach indicating the meeting point.

Sameer is very friendly and outgoing without being intrusive. Very professional and secure. It has one of the only shaded gazebos and its lunch was simple but excellent. Even my children who were moderately excited were delighted at the end of the day!

Great day to the Northern Islands! The islands are beautiful, the times granted on each were perfect. Brilliant crew, smiling, good humored and super attentive! Very good lunch and drinks throughout! The snorkeling spot at the end was superb!

had a perfect day with the Wind Dancer Catamaran crew. from start till end, they made sure we have all we need and fell perfect. the cruise was super smooth. food and drinks were delicious. recommend this tour to everyone visiting Mauritius.
