It was amazing, the staff was as well. If I could add one suggestion, I think it’s better to do the snorkeling stop when you return as it’s much warmer during that time. Other than that, 5-star all around

Great experience with excellent service on board. We were even lucky enough to see dolphins on the way back that swam right in front of the catamaran. Would recommend.

İt was a perfect catamaran tour. Staff of catamaran were very friendly. The food and service were amazing. They are the best

Excellent tour but understand that it will depend on the people that will be with you on the catamaran.

We had a great day on the catamaran in the beautiful nature of Mauritius.
