A great day. We started at 07:45 and drove straight to Flat Island. We were the first and had the island to ourselves for an hour. After that it got full. If you want to be alone for longer, you can also arrange the start time flexibly. For example, at 6 a.m. the skipper had a tour the next day. A super BBQ buffet with sea views in the middle of paradise just for the two of us. Nothing was missing. All salads were made in-house. Drinks, what you want and you're always asked, you don't evaporate on the tour. The third island was a great snorkeling spot. We have not experienced so many colorful fish and dreamlike water ourselves while diving in Mauritius. The view was great. Fins, masks and snorkels are available on the boat. The tour was definitely worth it, just fantastic ;)

Everything went as planned without improvisations or reductions of the proposals. All the crew members are very kind, professional and discreet. Since my husband forgot his wet swimsuit on board we got in touch and 2 days later they gave us an appointment to get it back. Very kind!!!

The 3 northen islands are beautiful! The trip was great, the conditions, the food, everythig. Looking at the others catamaran the Wind Dancer was the best

Relaxed day tour with dream islands. Unfortunately, there weren't any turtles or dolphins to be seen.

Comfortable catamaran, caring crew, hearty meals and paradise islands
