The tour is definitely worth it. The guides are super friendly and take good care of the guests. Sufficient food and drinks are included (included in the price). The two islands are beautiful, unfortunately the time on site passes very quickly ... The trips there and back take about 1.5 hours, on the way back there is a stop at a nice snorkeling spot at the Coin de Mire, where it is there are many different fish and sea turtles to see (the fish are fed, however). If you have problems with waves, you should have a travel tablet or similar beforehand. take, because the catamaran is already rocking on the open sea. You still feel safe, it may only hit your stomach a little. We would do the tour again at any time, certainly two of the most beautiful spots on and around Mauritius.
The crew is very pleasant and attentive to the needs of the passengers. The islands visited are not overcrowded with tourists and it is significant. The diving spots (snorkling) are superb. In the end, the food is good and the unlimited drinks cause some welcome excesses on vacation ...
