Full description

Explore Mauritius' 3 Northern Isles in just one day on this full-day catamaran cruise. Marvel at Mauritius' very own island getaways, government-declared nature reserves featuring pristine white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and beautiful coral gardens. Enjoy tea, coffee, and cake upon arrival at the catamaran Wind Dancer, then depart from Grand Baie Public Beach after the captain's briefing.

Cruise easily for approximately 1 hour on the way to the magical Flat Island. Visit the island before returning to the catamaran for a sumptuous BBQ lunch and drinks. After lunch, explore the beauty of Gabriel Island. Snorkel in the lovely lagoon, or simply laze in the sun on the beautiful sandbar that Gabriel Island is best known for. On the return journey to Grand Bay, make a stop at the natural aquarium of Coin de Mire and swim and snorkel among a multitude of colorful reef fish. The catamaran arrives back in the bay in the afternoon. Both shared and private options are available for this tour.

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.

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.

Was really a dream. In the morning, the team picked us up punctually from the beach, as agreed, and took us over to the catamaran in a small boat. Small breakfast and off we went. First we are to the Flat Island. A dream of white sand and turquoise blue water. Definitely go snorkeling. Walks straight from the beach. Coral reef with lots of colorful fish. After that we had a BBQ meal on the catamaran. Super delicious food! Definitely try the fish, very tasty (although I don't like fish). Then we went to Gabriel Island. Nice to relax. Then we went to the last island for snorkeling. Warning: deep water. All in all it was a great day. Very nice crew. But I would recommend taking a jacket with you, as it can be very windy at times. After all, you are on the open Indian Ocean. Also higher waves.
