What people are saying about Rivière du Rempart District

This trip is definitely worth it. The crossing was very turbulent. The waves very high. But the islands make up for it. Are just great. Since we started very early, we had the islands for our boat for an hour. Snorkeling at coin de mire was great. The food on board was good.

Everything was organised perfectly from the meet and greet and the small breakfast to the delicious barbeque lunch. Three dreamy locations visited during the day with lots of time to soak up the sun, snorkel and explore. Thank you to Marcel and his crew.

Excellent day out! The captain and his crew were wonderful with us all. Very knowledgeable and cooked a delicious lunch. The Islands were beautiful and the snorkelling spectacular! Definitely recommended!

Very friendly crew on the Wind Dancer, who organized a wonderful day for us in a well-structured manner. The early start is worthwhile because you are always the first cat at the stops.

The staff on the catamaran were awesome. The catamaran cruise is always the highlight of a Mauritius holiday.
