Full description
Explore the Blue Bay Marine Park by glass-bottom boat and snorkeling in the largest marine life and coral reserve in Mauritius, including a relaxing lunch on a private beach. Your half-day excursion starts from the Blue Bay Public Beach in the southeast of Mauritius. Board the glass-bottom boat and head out into the Blue Bay Marine Park to observe its underwater diversity. Sail along the marvelous seaside from Point d’Esny to visit the old shipwreck, located in the turquoise lagoon of the Marine Park. Here, you’ll have your first chance to go snorkeling and discover this underwater world for yourself.   Then, head to the private island Ile de deux Cocos for lunch. Relax on one of the public beaches on the island where you’ll be offered a delicious typical Creole picnic. Choose between a traditional Creole curry prepared with fish, chicken, or vegetables served with rice and salad. A large variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be served as well—don’t skip the famous Jungle Cocktail.   After lunch, take up to 2 hours to relax on the beach and enjoy the beautiful environment on this private island. After your break, the crew will pick you up and take you back to the Marine Park lagoon, where you’ll have another opportunity to snorkel among the fish and coral, before heading back to the starting point.

A heavenly day, nothing more to complain about! We were accompanied by Jordan, an extraordinary skipper, kind, generous, with an overflowing joie de vivre and above all endowed with great professionalism! He made us visit heavenly and wonderful places that will remain engraved! The observation of fish through the glass bottom of the boat or even through snorkeling sessions are really worth the detour! It was a wonderful sight to see! Thanks to Jordan and the Totof Tour team for these unique moments! Thanks also and especially to Virginie's mom for these delicious meals! To those who still hesitate: GO FOR IT AND ENJOY!

Super tour, which we booked at short notice for the last day of our trip. Our tour guide Yannick was very dedicated, friendly and experienced. We were a small group with a total of 9 vacationers. The program is great and well timed. We didn't miss anything and the supply on the boat was also very good, the food was delicious! Can highly recommend this tour!

A magical moment… We were amazed: we had the chance to see a sea turtle, the coral reef… it was just perfect! Yannick made this moment very pleasant. The lunch was very good, with a breathtaking sea view. Thank you Yannick for this timeless moment that will remain forever in our memories!
