Our family had a great time on a private catamaran tour. The staff was extremely friendly and kind and made our trip very comfortable. We've visited a beautiful snorkelling spot and the amazing Cerf Island which has a perfect bay with warm and shallow water even for young children.

Very nice experience at sea! We were able to benefit from the tranquility of being alone on a catamaran and very well supervised by the crew of 2 really very nice people! Ile aux Cerfs is good but ... the experience of sailing with sails is quite another thing!

Very beautiful day with Virginie who made us decorate the Blue Bay maritime park. A huge variety of fish, corals and even a turtle!

Wonderful day! Excellent snorkelling, yummy lunch Especially awesome, accommodating skipper/guide!

Very nice view of fishes and corals. Yannick was very helpful and friendly. Really to recommend.
