Step aboard a luxury catamaran and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Black River mountain range and the mythical Morne Mountain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the calm blue waters of the West, complete relaxation awaits.  Depart from The Morne Anglers Club at 9:15 AM and head to Tamarin Bay. Here, you can try to spot the dolphins. Then, take a leisurely sail in the direction of Crystal Rock and stop on the way for some snorkeling and swimming next to the coral reef. Once you arrive at Crystal Rock, you may have another swim while the crew is preparing a delicious BBQ. After lunch, you will be able to spend 40 minutes discovering Île aux Benitiers. There is a boat at your disposal to take you to the island: sail back to the Black River and arrive at approximately 3:30 PM.

    Die Bootsfahrt, das Schnorcheln, das Essen, die Walsichtung - alles einfach perfekt! Wunderschöne 6h! Nur die Insel Benetiers war uns zu kommerziell und hat uns nicht gefallen! Dafür haben wir 30min mehr zum Schnorcheln und Schwimmen gehabt! Wir würden den Ausflug sofort wieder machen!

    Ein sehr schöner Ausflug mit einer super coolen Crew! Wir haben Delfine, Wale und Seeschildkröten sehen können. Die Crew war sehr aufmerksam. Wir haben an schönen Schwimm-Spots angehalten und konnten dort beim Schnorcheln die Fische beobachten. Mittags gab es ein unfassbar gutes Barbecue; mit Hühnchen, Fisch und Lobster. Wir haben nie so gut gegrillten Lobster gegessen! Dazu jede Menge Beilagen und einen leckeren Nachtisch! Die Insel Benetiers war leider wenig interessant. Zig Souvenir-Buden und viele Touristen. Das Meer ist dort leider auch nur max Knietief, und nicht zum Schwimmen geeignet. Das hätten wir uns sparen können. Aber davon abgesehen, war es ein wunderschöner Ausflug den wir absolut empfehlen können!
