What a fabulous day. If you want to while away 8 hours being on a boat can be enough. The crew where polite informative and helpful. Chatting with us to dispense necessary info and jovial interaction. I cannot rate the barbecue lunch highly enough and have to say was not my expectation. Lovely chicken and tuna fish with pasta and salad all cooked perfectly. Drinks where available on request water soft drinks and alcohol. I stuck to non alcoholic as I went snorkeling at the last island of the 3 we visited and that’s off the boat straight into the sea, another great experience. I didn’t go to the second island choose to just lay onboard and take in the day of which the weather was faultless. Altogether an excellent trip I would highly recommend. Take sunscreen and shade yourself a bit that’s the dad in me talking, your out for 8 hours. Thank you to the Skipper and crew of the Wind Dancer.

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.
