The boat tour was really a highlight! The whole crew on board the catamaran was in a good mood and always had a joke up their sleeves. On the catamaran with about 35 guests there were 6 crew members and a cook who were available to answer our questions around the clock and made the tour unforgettable. After a short tour with the catamaran, we got on a ship, which was partly underwater like a submarine and thus gave an excellent view of the reef. This was followed by an hour of snorkeling near Moyenne Island. This was followed by the musical guitar playing and singing with percussion elements by the crew. I noticed Francis particularly positively, who was always beaming with joy and encouraging. He even brought drinks to some elderly guests who were lying in the sun in the nets at the front end of the catamaran and really cared that everyone had a memorable trip. I can only recommend the tour!

Amazing day, my driver Henry was very nice and kind. He told me many interesting facts and also shared some of his experiences, which was very informative to learn how the locals live. Henry adjusted the whole trip to what I wanted to do, even went with me for a hike to the rock pool! (which is not as easy as I thought :) Overall, great experience, definitely worth to spend at least one day on this trip and discover Mahe island :)

We were picked up on time, asked what we would most like to see from the suggested stops, and off we went. The driver was very nice / by the way, we only met nice locals ;-)) / and stopped at nice photo spots. He gave us plenty of time on the beaches, for the turtles and lunch...all in all, this trip is highly recommended!!

Was a great tour. The driver created the tour according to our wishes and explained everything to us. I can only recommend the tour, you have a friendly and local driver who is very nice and helpful. No mass event but individual. 5 stars from me, anytime again.

A thorough view of the island and its beaches, places to eat and visit. Lots of photo opportunities.
